SOUTH OF THE CITY



FOR LISTINGS FURTHER SOUTH See..SOUTH COAST including GOLD COAST


SOUTHBANK


Other must-sees are the markets at Southbank on Friday night and Saturday and Sunday during the day, Riverside Markets on Sundays at Riverside in the city, the markets in The Valley on Saturdays. At the moment my favourite markets are the Valley and Riverside. Southbank markets have an antiques and collectables market on Sundays as well. To go to the markets in the city (Southbank and Riverside) my favourite routine is to go to Southbank, park there, wander the markets there, then go down to the river and catch the ferry round to the other side of the city and get off at Riverside, wander the markets there, maybe have lunch at one of the restaurants, catch the ferry back to Southbank and then home after maybe a picnic/bbq dinner in the gardens at Southbank.

If you have children and are going to follow this scenario make sure that you take bathers & towels with you as there is a "beach" complete with lifeguard, at Southbank which my two young hellions love to go swimming at if it is warm enough. All in all,  a very relaxing way to spend a Sunday.

1)Now for those of you who haven't had the privilege of visiting this store, let me tell you that if you're ever in the vicinity it is #1 on the list of things to do - it's an Aladdin's Cave. First sight of the shop is racks and racks of clothes and other bits and pieces under the awning on the footpath. You slowly make you way through this and enter into a wonderland - you name it - they have it, everything from men's nightshirts to tapestries to ornaments to a handbag that you could kill someone with if you're not careful - it has a lethal stiletto heel attached. I found quite of few of my 'must haves' here. The shop is in two halves, across the road in the original bakehouse is the other half and this is where I found my complimentary fabrics for my 'love those fat quarters' panel - a future craft carry bag. Another hour or so whiled away just getting lost in everything. The staff here are wonderful and helped us with all our questions and nothing was any trouble

PHONE61 07 40 953805

1) Yungaburra is so small you can't miss it, literally a main street and that's it. Just down from the pub!!!VBG I would particularly like to recommend this business. Wendy is most helpful and is prepared to hunt all over for hard to get items. (I don't have any connection with this business, but am just a very satisfied phone customer).

2) 70km south west of Cairns on the Atherton Tablelands. Embroidery and patchwork supplies, very helpful staff. Got some lovely Rajmahal Silk threads, then DH came and said the bus was going so handed over my money when I spotted some lovely quilts on the back wall, but just no time left. I wouldn't have minded being stranded there overnight but I don't think the bus was going back that way for several days.
