Day 22 - As far as the tide reaches

Day 22 - As far as the tide reaches
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

SOME of the hottest, most humid weather of the year occurs around this week. The temperature sometimes reaches into the high 30s along the coast and can hit the low 40s further inland around the sheltered valleys around Ipswich. The coast has its maximum temperature in the late morning before the welcome sea breeze hits. The sea breeze does not head far inland, causing the air to continue heating well into the afternoon bringing the higher temperatures.

Today's hike takes be from the leafy suburb of Balbowrie continuing upstream, though I have no views of the river until finally reaching Colleges Crossing at the upper limit of the tide. From there I cross the hill directly to Ipswich to where the Bremer River, the Brisbane River's largest branch, reaches its tidal limit. I spend the late afternoon and evening exploring the historic Ipswich city centre.
