Getting to Brisbane City and Southbank

Brisbane CIty and Southbank

Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland, the third largest city of Australia with a population of almost 2.5 million. Getting to Brisbane City and Southbank is easy when you know how!

Nestled in the heart of the city beside the Brisbane River is Southbank, a hive of activity and entertainment. There are numerous restaurants and pubs, Night markets and the Streets Lagoon swimming pool.

When you travel in a big vehicle such as our Motorhome, going into the City in Brisbane or to Southbank Parklands and finding a park isn’t possible. Today’s video shows you how we do it, it’s easy, fun and not expensive.

We can always find a park at Portside and from there we catch the CityCat up the Brisbane River directly to Southbank or a number of locations great locations with many things to see and do.

For camping accommodation when in Brisbane we recommend the Lawnton Showgrounds on Brisbane’s northside. It is approx a half an hour drive north from the city or there is a train station close by.

For inner city accommodation we always use Booking.com. Begin your search here.

Watch our video for all the details 🙂

Our camera equipment we use for all of our photos and videos are:

Samsung Note 10 Plus Phone – https://ebay.to/2upyEfM – Most of our photos are simply from our phones. The Samsung phone cameras are pretty insane. Our phones have 512gb storage in ours but the 256gb in this one is heaps. We have sourced this one which is approx $500 less than we paid for ours.

Canon 800d – https://ebay.to/2GoBt37 – the latest DSLR Canon 24mp camera, buy here to save.
Lenses – Canon 50mm lens – https://ebay.to/2RL7CY7  This is the lens I use the least, ideal for still, close up shots.
Canon 24-105mm lens – https://ebay.to/2ve3w2Z This is my all round, everyday use, zoom lens. Amazing quality, great price.
Canon 70-300mm lens – https://ebay.to/37pCAM9 – I use this one a lot for long range shots.
Sigma 10-20mm lens – https://ebay.to/2RpOJed  – My wide angle lens for all my inside photos & video plus lots more, love this lens.

Our Go Pro 7 Hero Black – https://ebay.to/38wMc7V  –  is an awesome piece of equipment. I use this for all underwater, action video and some general use. Buy here brand new and great value.

Mavic Pro Platinum Drone – https://ebay.to/37oKkhb  This is an absolute ripper of a drone. The Fly More Combo will provide you with everything you will need. I use this for all my aerial footage and this price is well below other retail stores.

Know your Vehicle Size and Height

Know your vehicle size

It is very important to know your vehicle size and height!

While traveling across Australia you will come across many situations whereby you will need to know your total overall length of your vehicle and what you may be towing.

When you board ferries and boats all around the country or drive under awnings, roofs or bridges it is going to be very important you know exactly your vehicle length, vehicle width and vehicle height.

You will need the exact measurements especially when booking your vehicle on the Spirit of Tasmania.

Cleaning your Solar Panels

Cleaning your Solar Panelss

If you are road tripping Australia it’s very likely you have a Power source setup that includes Solar power, therefore cleaning your Solar Panels is very important.

Before we ventured off on our trip my electrician mate gave me the wise words of “make sure you keep the solar panels clean”. He explained this will ensure maximum efficiency.

Today we will show you how we go about cleaning our Solar panels. We have 3 panels on the roof of our Motorhome and they get cleaned on a regular basis.

You’ll need access to your roof, a chamois or sponge, water (warm is good) and a cloth or something to wipe it dry, is good too.

Since doing this video we have implemented our new C-TEK battery management system and got it working and now we generate a lot more power than we were on this day.

Keep your solar panels clean and you will enjoy a lot more efficiency from your solar system.
