Took a ferry from Mulimby into the city and went to Southbank which is an area re-developed and now having two galleries and a museum. We saw some great art works, including a guided tour of a NZ installation by Michael Parekowhai which would have been incomprehensible without the guide. Loved the ‘beach’ with the real lifeguard. It’s a public swimming pool with beautifully landscaped walkways with bouganivillia growing up along architecturally irregular steel archway. Just had to go for a wee refreshment in the ‘Surf Club’ – well you have to, don’t you?
