So you like cult cinema? You ought to find out more about the Globe Theatre, then. It’s at 220 Brunswick St in the Valley – click here to see the exact location. As you can see from the photo, it’s 3 doors down from the Valley Metro mall – the one that has the train station in it.
Some of the highlights are:
Oh, and you can get a beer there. I’m not talking about a paper cup of beer either, but in a glass bottle.

Because Brisbane is built on hills, there are some steep slopes right in the middle of town. In particular, it is a very steep climb from Adelaide St to Ann St. This means that the back of St John’s Anglican Cathedral looks down onto Adelaide St from on top of a 5-metre high cliff. You wouldn’t even notice it unless you bothered to look up all the time. Click here to see the exact location of the cathedral.

On Saturday 24th February, I went to Davies Park in West End, an inner suburb of Brisbane (click here to see the exact location), to catch the trial match between National Rugby League side
There were three games on Saturday - a colts game (young, up and coming players) and a FOGS (A-grade citywide) match, both between the Magpies and local team Easts Tigers. Then there was the main game between Souths and Wests.
I couldn’t get many good pictures of the main game, because my camera isn’t too good in the dark. (I’m saving up for a new one, let me know if you want to help me buy one that costs about $A 450).
But here’s 30-odd pictures including some of the early games, and a short video including some of the later game. Just keep reading…

National Rugby League (NRL) player Mark Gasnier scores a try playing for the Kangaroos against the British Lions in an international Test match at Brisbane’s Lang Park last November.
Rugby League is the most popular winter sport in Brisbane. It’s roughly similar to American or Canadian football, but the rules have been designed to make it a much faster and more free-flowing game.
The regular NRL season starts on Friday, March 16th, and there are trial matches this weekend and next, where the clubs will test out their squads for the 2007 season. I was reading Australian sports website sidelined when I found the full program of trial matches. There are four matches in the Brisbane region – keep reading to find out more.
