“Greeter” tour in Briabane 

Standard

One of the things that has given us a little bit of culture understanding in each country we visit is the free walking tour. 

In most countries there are some volunteers who come together to give free walling tours for tourist like me and my family. 

And in Brisbane they call them “Greeters” and we are so grateful for them. 

This time we had our tour guy name Jonathan and he was so patient with us and knowledgeable with the history of Brisbane Australia. So here are a few pictures of our journey…. 

So we start with iur train ride…it was late so we decided to have a photoshoot…

On the train pose 

The tour started at the city hall..this massive building had art all over it. It shows the aboriginals stopping the britsh people from invading their land… 

This potrays when women where given the chance to start voting…

So this place use to be the place to be for arts…like an opera house..but now this beautiful magestic Building is used as an information center…

Thats the inside of the information center…

The morden Briabane arcade 

Before the moden arcade…this picture was in the 1800’s

Kids are intuned to understand the history of Brisbane Australia 

So around the city they have this street lamps with this creatures…bats..I asked if it meant something but guide said no…actuly the bats are not liked in Brisbane…

Some beautiful buildings…thats the treasury building but now its a casino….yeap…still the money  building

Some beautiful arts around queens street mall..

More arts…

Now the new government building 

The nee developement coming up in Briabane which they have closed the road for and it will take 6 to 8yrs

The parliament house…

This exact place infront of the parliament house is called “speakers corner” and anyone is allowed to stand there and speak up and voice out their opinion in either politics or religion…

One of the first roman churches in the city

She was the first Saint…

Art inside thr church made with a tree…

A replica of the Liberty bell

I love this lawyers corner…the street in that area is actually coveredand beautiful buildings 

Anzac square…anzac is the name given to the new Zealand and Australian military that fought for the British…so in Australia they celebrate Anzac day which is on April 26th…

The eternal flame at the anzac square

So in 2011 Brisbane had a major floodand this is a plaque they have showing flood levels in the past years 

Dinner after our tour…

The pose when we miss our bus…

At the bus station and their brother got stuck on the tree

From most countires…it seem like the British colonized lots of countriesand left lots of their mark..like buildings and the culture of tea drinking and many many others around this cities they usually arrive at. 

Thanks to our guide for teaching us so much about Brisbane and Australia as a whole.
