By the Brisbane River

Trams used to cross the Brisbane River to enter the city. But once the old Victoria Bridge was torn down and replaced with a new one, tram lines were excluded, causing the clanking contraptions to fade from Brisbane’s landscape leaving Melbourne the only tram city in Australia.

While I walked next to the river, ferries zigzagged back and forth; tourist boats travelled up and down the river while I headed towards the old Expo site.
