We got there via QUT with the Sea Cat witnessing the remaining historic architecture in the middle of the property spree, charming and erect.

So many locals and visitors enjoy the gardens, walking, jogging, cycling. It's a beautiful walk along the river with views of the Storey Bridge and Kangaroo Point Cliffs, enjoy the markets when they're open, feed the birds, perhaps take a picnic on the lush lawns.

Studying in QUT, this is just beside the campus. A nice place to chill in the midst of bust university schedule
