At the head of the fountain stands this large statue of Confucious which was gifted to the people of Queensland, in December 2009, by the Ji'nan Municipal Government, Shandong Province, People's Republic of China to celebrate Queensland's 150th Birthday.
Just down the way is a pool and, just beyond that, a manmade beach. The beach is quite impressive but I didn't take photos because there were a lot of young children swimming there and laws are in place about taking pics of children in public places. I'm sorry that all the pics are dull....it was an overcast day and threatening to rain.
All of the scenes in the photos above are smack bang in the midst of Brisbane City. It feels kinda surreal when we can clearly see skyscrapers not that far away.
