After Port Douglas, we drove back to Cairns and boarded a flight to Brisbane. In Brisbane we explored the city and the Night Noodle Market. Once again, we were blown away with the public parks and pools. This time they had man made sandy beaches and little walkways through rainforest vegetation and around tiny islands, near the huge childrens playground that had a crazy slide that was 3 stories tall. We also were jealous of their amazing libraries. We took a ferry ride to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and saw a ton of Koalas, Kangaroos, a rather fat wombat and a cute little platypus.
