My back to the future video of a walking field trip around Brisbane in 2015, This is the city that I still live in and love, the colours the magic it has been here for me. I've just thought of doing a blog for this (2018) so I've got 18 year plus year to remember.. So here it goes..
Brisbane's recorded history dates from 1799, when Matthew Flinders explored Moreton Bay on an expedition from Port Jackson, although the region had long been occupied by the Jagera and Turrbal aboriginal tribes. The town was conceived initially as a penal colony for British convicts sent from Sydney. Its suitability for fishing, farming, timbering, and other occupations, however, caused it to be opened to free settlement in 1838. The town became a municipality in 1859 and a consolidated metropolitan area in 1924.
The City were a boy found home, I arrived in 1999 and stayed at a backpackers place in Vulture Street, Southbank, Then moved to Deception Bay, Coorparoo, Carina, Mt Gravatt, Browns Plains and finally landing a spot in New Farm.
