Yes, it was seven years ago exactly to the day when me, Mrs Bob and a tiny Elizabeth stepped off the plane to set foot on Brisbane soil and called this city our home.
To mark the occasion the Queensland Government has declared today a public holiday for all the residents of Brisbane, which is nice. Leaders from all around the world have also flown in to Brisbane for the celebrations, and while they are here they’re going to have a little meeting, I think they are calling it the G20 Summit.
It’s been a peach of a day for a public holiday as well, not a cloud in the sky…
What to do in Brisbane?
So, what could we do around Brisbane during this additional day off?

Regular readers will know I absolutely love Brisbane, wouldn’t swap it for any other city. This video isn’t very complimentary though, but then I have posted videos that have been a little cruel to other cities and towns in the past.
For example Beau Knows Wollongong and Canberra: The Musical spring to mind. I’m sure I have posted other Mickey taking videos about other cities as well, so maybe it’s time I let one slip through about Brisbane.
After all, if you can’t laugh at yourself, as the saying goes, you could be missing out on some really big laughs. Or something like that.
I’ve got to go, I’ve got a public holiday to get back to, but before I disappear, here’s “Welcome to Brisbane”
