The Wynnum Jetty

To the north we have the huge Port of Brisbane, at the mouth of the Brisbane River, and across the river the ever expanding Brisbane Airport is situated. Landing or taking off from the airport usually gives you wonderful views either across Moreton Bay or back towards the city of Brisbane through which the river winds.

The photo is of the jetty at Wynnum that stretches out into Moreton Bay. The poles at the entrance are part of an aboriginal totem. The area was inhabited by a number of aboriginal tribes before the white settlers came, and this is just one part of the local artworks to commemorate the Quandamooka people.
