Hi Ziners,

In my town? Well Brisbane has just staged River Fire - a huge fireworks spectacular where tonnes of fireworks are set off from bridges, buildings and boats along the river - for the viewing pleasure of a half a million happy observers.

Tomorrow our Olympians arrive and there will be a spectacular ticker-tape parade with a huge crowd as we are so impressed and proud of their accomplishments.

Toowoomba (a drive from Brisbane) is gearing up for its flower festival...

And today we finally get a little shower to celebrate the last day of "winter" - but winter really finished ages ago as the last weeks have had 26oC temperatures... :) Megan Brisbane, Australia
