A Day Hike at Mount Coot-tha (January 9, 2014)

Mount Coot-tha is a small mountain park not far from where we live in Brisbane. We had been there before, but sometime in August or September we took a day trip to explore it properly.

On the Way

Mount Coot-tha is just a quick bus trip away from us, so we took a quick detour through Eagle St to do some exploring in our neighborhood along the way.

View from the Lookout

You can see much of Brisbane from the lookout, including the BCD, where we live. The small cluster of taller buildings in the first photo is the BCD. It really drives home why Brisbane feels so much smaller than it is. It's kind of like one giant small town in a lot of ways.

Golden Gaytime

Just before this trip, someone was making fun of the Golden Gaytime ice cream bar on Facebook. I saw this at a Café and had to try it out. Honey flavored ice cream is fairly popular in Australia, which I assume is where the name "golden" comes from. I actually quite liked it.
