Brisbane

 

Queensland, Australia

 

It may be Australia’s third-largest city, but for the longest time Brisbane was seen as something of a poor cousin to Sydney and Melbourne: a sleepy country town hiding behind a big city façade. In recent years, however, Brisbane has stirred from its slumber and is casually emerging as one of the most desirable places to live in Australia with an estimated 1000 people packing their bags and moving up here every week. Of course locals have always known that Brissie offers the perfect lifestyle and it doesn’t take visitors long to understand why.

 

Despite the transformation into a sleek, cosmopolitan city complete with world-class art galleries, a booming live music scene and a fabulous café culture, Brisbane still retains the laid-back, easy attitude of a small community. No doubt the lazy subtropical climate, gently curving Brisbane River and rich cultural flavours of its many neighbourhoods also have something to do with its appeal. But mostly people love Brisbane because it’s a ritzy city with a down-to-earth attitude and home to some of the friendliest locals in Oz.

Fort Lytton was built in 1879-1881 to control access up the Brisbane River. A Controlled Minefield was laid in the Brisbane River and together with

the Fort’s guns negated the potential Naval threat from other Imperial countries such as Russia and France.  Image sourced from www.flickr.com/

 

 

The 64 pounder cannon being fired for Artillery Day in November, at Fort Lytton, Brisbane. With the entry of Japan into the War the Fort became

the Inner Examination Battery and by the use of the Defence Boom across the Brisbane River, a 4.7 inch Naval Gun and a Twin 6 Pounder Anti

Motor Torpedo Boat Gun controlled access up the Brisbane River. The Defence Boom stretched from Bulwer Island to Fort Lytton and was

designed to keep out midget submarines and other small craft thus protecting the largest Allied submarine base in the Southern

Hemisphere located in the New Farm area.  Image sourced from www.flickr.com/photos/dshurdle/

"No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man* who is in

heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,

that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave

His only begotten Son*, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God  

did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." 

( * Jesus )   Gospel of John ch.3  vs.13-17.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version
