A quiet start before we ambled across to the Qld Museum. The Museum does not open until 9:30 so we had plenty of time.
I started organising our things ready to pack tomorrow morning. I had done a load of washing the night before, so all we will not have just chore to do when we get home.
The Museum was very interesting. It is not the largest museum but had a large collection of Australian animals and dinosaurs.
On the first floor is a very good exhibition called ” The Anzac Legacy Gallery ” It tells the story of the First World War and how it changed the face of Qld and how those events have shaped our life now.
We spent a good while at the Museum before catching a bus to Bowen Hills to see a new dining precinct that has been built on part of the Brisbane Exhibition Grounds. We have seen TV segments on the “King Street” area and thought it would be a good place to get morning tea.
Well, it did not turn out quite as I planned 🙁 Firstly we had to wait 10 minutes or so for a bus, then when we did get to King St, most of the cafes were closed. It is obviously a “night venue” Then I looked for a bus to get us back to SouthBank and found that we had just missed one and the next was 30minutes away.
This was not ideal, as we had a restaurant booking for 1:00 at Riverside with the daughter.
I made the decision to walk up to the next main road where I was sure there would a lot more buses passing. It was a 500m walk and it was hot 🙁 We did manage to get a bus and were back at the Mantra in time to have a quick shower to freshen up before getting the City Cat to lunch.
Daughter had given us a voucher for Kingsleys at Riverside (our kids know we like eating out, as they both gave us “food” 🙂 )
The food here was simply sublime. We decided it was possibly the best restaurant we had been to.
Sadly we forgot to get a photo of our mains – (Eye Fillet and Waygu Pappardelle.)
Good food, Good wine, Good company – Great day!!
After lunch we were VERY full, so we spent the afternoon relaxing in the room and further sorting out packing for the next day.
