Brisbane, the river city is a vibrant, exciting city to live in and visit. Our outdoor lifestyle all year around makes for relaxed living. The Queensland Floods have devastated many cities, towns and regions of Queensland. But we will rebound, rebuild and come back better than ever. This is the Queensland way, just ask any Queenslander at State of Origin time.

Premier Anna Bligh’s emotive press conference on the 13th January sums it up perfecly; “As we weep for what we have lost, and as we grieve for family and friends and we confront the challenge that is before us, I want us to remember who we are,we are Queenslanders. We’re the people that they breed tough, north of the border. We’re the ones that they knock down, and we get up again.”

At a time like this, let’s remember the beauty of our river and what it means to us. Brisbane food and travel writer Karen Reyment‘s article “A River Runs Through It” reminds us what is great about our city and our river.

These images of our Brisbane River are today’s “Photos of the Day”.
