The weather is cooler and it is time to take TOH out for an airing. TOH
enjoys prefers walking in the city rather than in the forest (go figure) anyhoo we did the park and ride thingy on the train. We agreed on a walk along the river from Milton into the CBD of Brisbane, nicknamed 'The River City', obviously because the Brisbane River runs through the heart of the city. After an hour on the trains we finally arrived at Milton. By then it was coffee time.
So, dosed up on caffeine we went on our way towards the river.
Soon we were on the super bikeway and walkway which follows the river into town.
It was an overcast day but the rain held off while we walked. As the river runs through the middle of the city there are many bridges.
Looking back at the "The Go Between Bridge". It is a toll bridge for vehicles,pedestrians and cyclists. It was opened in 2010.
Our City Cat commuter ferries near the next bridge .
It is the "Kurilpa Bridge" but nicknamed the Fiddlesticks Bridge. It is a pedestrian and bicycle bridge and it was opened in 2009. The unconventional style caused a lot of controversy at first. You can see the wires better in the previous photo. I like it! Our walkway now goes underneath the "Riverside Expressway"opened in 1975.
Under the expressway.
