I would like to give all the lucky Australians reading this post a gigantic virtual cuddle in celebration of today being the start of the weekend! (Runs around in circles whilst sprinkling confetti all around). So to kick off this lovely occasion I thought I’d share my top 3 favourite locations for capturing photos of my local stomping ground, Brisbane CBD.
Location 1: Southbank, Brisbane CBD
For those of you who have not yet had the pleasure of visiting Southbank, it’s pretty much the riverfront epicentre for all things culture, food and lifestyle. And it is quite possibly the most impressively manicured and well-maintained 17-hectares you will ever come across within the concrete jungle that is Brisbane. So, as you can imagine, narrowing down a specific location always proves pretty difficult here. But for the below set of photos, Rhett and I set up along the River Quay Green Amphitheatre where we had unobstructed views of the city sky-line and the Goodwill bridge.
Location 2: Wilsons Outlook, Brisbane CBD
If you are looking for a vantage point that perfectly frames the iconic Story Bridge, I urge you to take a waddle down to Wilsons Outlook. Not only is it located right on the edge of the CBD, offering dramatic views of Brisbane’s high-rise buildings and the river down below, but this little strip of greenery is also perched atop a rocky cliff and therefore doesn’t seem to garner as much foot traffic as some of its neighbouring lookouts.
Location 3: Kangaroo Point, Brisbane CBD
Okay. So in terms of city vantage points, no other area can really beat Kangaroo Point, a popular suburb located across the river and directly east of the city’s central business district. And let’s be honest, the photos pretty much speak for themselves. For this particular set of photos, Rhett and I set up on a little peninsular rock that juts out just off the Brisbane River.
Looking back at these photos, I honestly cannot wait to start adding more cityscapes to my ever-growing collection. If anybody has a recommendation or know of any secret-squirrel locations and are feeling decidedly generous, please feel free to pop a comment down below! Otherwise, I hope everybody has an amazing weekend, wherever in the world you guys may be.
Love Linda, xo
