This is the last lot of photos I have of our Brisbane G20 experience.
We made our way through the top end of Queen Street Mall in front of the casino, this is where you look towards Southbank and what is beyond the Victoria Bridge.
The Victoria Bridge is a pedestrian and motor vehicle bridge that crosses the Brisbane River and was opened in 1969.
Now it was being walked by us.
You may notice in the first picture of the bridge above there is a helicopter in the top left hand corner.
This was a Police helicopter that was hovering around pretty much the whole time we were in the city.
Take not too, as we were walking across the Victoria Bridge the lack of traffic on the Captain Cook Bridge in both directions.
It was like this for the whole time we were in that area and it was an eerie feeling.
As I said above the lack of traffic is pretty weird, I’m sure the six vehicles in the picture above on the Captain Cook Bridge will agree with me too.
I was just talking to The Bride and we were discussing the fact that the current Victoria Bridge was opened in 1969 and the Captain Cook Bridge was opened in 1972.
The Story Bridge was called the Jubilee Bridge until it opened in 1940.
So the good people of Brisbane, prior to the Brisbane G20 and also prior to the Captain Cook Bridge use to have to cross the river and head south or go around the city and go across the Story Bridge to get to the south side of the city.
I’ll have to do a bit more investigating I think as I have read there was a few more other bridges around during the 1900’s and earlier.
I’ll write about it as I find out.
These pictures are from the Victoria Bridge looking both ways.
The last walk back across the Victoria Bridge for us on this G20 Brisbane adventure.
Walking across this bridge looking back at Brisbane City you realise our city is so small compared to others around the world.
But I guess that is what makes Brisbane unique.
Above is the amount of people that were in Brisbane Central Station catching a train when we did.
Not many, if any.
There were a few people behind this shot in the MacDonalds having something to eat, but other than that seeing other people was a rarity most of the time in numbers.
So there you have the last picture in the series from our trip into the Brisbane G20.
Was it worth it? Travelling by train into the city to say we were part of the Brisbane G20?
I’d say yes, we became a tiny part of G20 history and we can say, Yes, we remember that and we were there.
