I’m a sucker for a good botanical garden. Last year I spent hours wandering the Brooklyn Botanical garden – once in the heat of summer and the other on a sleety, sloppy winter day – and each time it was perfect. It was the perfect escape from the city.
Monday’s trip was a great escape. It’s about a 40 minute drive from our northern suburb to Mt. Coot-tha in the south western part of greater Brisbane. We left the house around 10am to avoid the traffic. We wandered, we had a lovely lunch at the cafe at the lookout, and we were home by 3pm. It was the perfect way to start the week.
