Knowing all too well how crazy busy and expensive hostels get around the festive season I thought ahead and organised some very cheap accommodation for myself while I was stay in Brisbane. After moving in I'm looking forward to actually doing some of the volunteer work I had planned to do. Having been let down by Blackbutt Reserve in Newcastle and finding it really difficult to find Conservation Volunteer projects that I can get to by public transport I'm excited to be doing at least 2 weeks volunteering at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. I start Monday so that doesn't give me much time to settle in to my new home but hopefully everything will go smoothly and to plan.
As for sightseeing, I'm quite happy to be back in a big city and on first impressions I prefer Brisbane to Sydney. And amazingly, there is sun but I guess I am in 'The Sunshine Capital'. Brisbane is very colourful and has a good mix of older and ultra modern buildings.
