PAX Australia & Melbourne Day 2 –
After staying dry as the storms of Day 1 bucketed down, drenching the city, I took the first tentative steps down the shores of the Yarra River. I had explored Brisbane and Sydney before, but this was the first real-time getting to the heart of Melbourne.
TL;DR – We explore the biggest pop-culture event in Brisbane.

Exploring Supanova Brisbane 2022 –
In the Spring of every year, a range of cultural events descends on my home city of Brisbane. You have the Brisbane Festival, Riverfire, Brisbane Film Festival, and Brisbane Supanova, to name a few. I used to go to Supanova every year, but it has been a couple of years since I last felt confident walking into a crowded space, especially a convention. However, with PAX Aus being a successful trial ruin, it was time to return to my local pop-culture event.
TL;DR – Today I got out of the house and just went for a walk for the first time since March
Since March, life has been a state of being at home twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, unless you had some specific event to go to. After a while, that starts to put a drain on your mental fortitude. Also, the lack of exercise plus stress eating has not helped either. Well, yesterday I had the day off and given the good situation that Queensland was in (when I left my door that morning, but we will get into that later) I thought it was time to get out of the house and go for a wander. So I packed my bag with hand sanitiser and a mask, left after peak hour, as recommended, and started my walk.
TL;DR – Today I explore the museums along the Brisbane river as I walk from GOMA down to Southbank
I had a day off this week and given it was perfect weather, warm but before the heat of summer hits us, I thought I would take some time winding down Brisbane’s Cultural District among its brutalist buildings, and lush Bougainvillea. All of this is right next to the Brisbane River so it is hard to get lost with that guideline always being there for you. So with today’s Explore-It, we will take you through all the museums, some old, some new, all full of interesting things, and best of all, every place I visited you can enter for free.
