Day 26 - Fortified mouth of the Brisbane River

Day 26 - Fortified mouth of the Brisbane River
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

WITH Christmas and New Year over, the holiday season continues with many people still away, making the most of it before many return to work next week. Not all industries are quiet though. The travel and transport industries are still working, with the ports and airports at their busiest for the year, as has been the case since Brisbane was first settled as a small remote penal colony. Now Brisbane is a major city, the port and airport are very busy bringing in people and goods from all around the world. This week (on the 11th) also marks the latest sunset of the year at 6:47PM.

Today's hike takes me back over the Gateway Bridge, and takes me up towards the port. Before reaching the port, I explore Fort Lytton, once the port's military base at a time when all goods and people arrived by sea. From there I explore the port, taking a boat trip out to the mouth of the river (no walking tracks there), before heading across the Wynnum Wetlands to the mouth of the Wynnum Creek, marking the end of 26 days of hiking, half the time along the 52 day trek towards the bottom of the Gold Coast.
