Lunch by The Story Bridge

Yesterday was a lovely winter's day in Brisbane.  We decided to go into town for lunch and make the most of the sunshine before the cold westerly winds hit us at EKKA (Exhibition) time.


Sydney has The Harbour Bridge, Melbourne has the West Gate Bridge and here in Brisbane we have The Story Bridge.  It may not be as famous as The Harbour Bridge or as big as The West Gate Bridge but it is one of Brisbane's greatest icons.  Thea and Sami have a great Story Bridge fabric panel which I love - it's so Brisbane!

Sometimes when you live in a city, you can get caught in your little pocket of suburbia, so a trip into town is a great way to get out.  We walked along the Brisbane River, looked at some of the stalls at The Riverside Market and had lunch at the famous George's Seafood Paragon restaurant.  This Greek and seafood restaurant has been long established on The Gold Coast and George has recently opened at Eagle Street Pier alongside Char Char Char at Matt Moran's Aria.  We were lucky enough to get a table on the sun drenched balcony.

The best marinated kalamata olives!

A seafood plate - prawns, scallops, barramundi and Moreton Bay bugs - yum.

What a great day.


  1. That food looks great! I also enjoy that you have scrabble pieces in your one header photo. I recently made a wedding gift using scrabble pieces, aren't they great?

    Love the blog and happy new follower.


  2. Love the look of that seafood platter.

  3. Hi Kylie, thanks for your comments over at my Jitta Jack Homewares blog. I have now discovered your lovely blog with so many inspiring ideas. ;-)
