MY BRISBANE

Where do you live and how long have you

lived there?

I grew up in Jamboree Heights and Durack. I

now live just down the road at Seventeen Mile

Rocks, south west of the city.

What do you like most about your

neighbourhood?

I love my local community. I try and take my

dogs for a walk through Seventeen Mile Rocks

Park whenever I have a spare moment.

What is a favourite memory of Brisbane

growing up?

My grandparents lived at Inala and Oxley. At

Inala we would sit in my grandfather’s house

at Christmas, eat Polish donuts and celebrate

family. Growing up at Oxley we would spend

weekends at Nanna and Pop’s house, riding

our push bikes, climbing the mandarin and

blueberry trees and racing around the house

until the sun went down.

What makes Brisbane a great city to live in?

I think Brisbane has grown up enormously

over the last 20 years. It has always been a

beautiful city but it is growing more and more

cosmopolitan every year. Our traditional

sporting events and our world-class cultural

precinct, among many other attractions, provide

locals and guests with plenty to do. And we have

the best weather in the world!

What’s your hot tip for visitors to Brisbane?

Taking the CityCat at night so you get to see

the city in a different light. Also, check out Inala

Plaza for some great food and culture.

You live in an area that’s a multicultural

feast of food choices. What’s your favourite

meal out and where?

Kim Khanh at Darra – for great Vietnamese

food; K&K Austrian Bakery and Coffee House,

Sinnamon Park – it’s got great disability access

and is a great place to the take the kids.

Where’s a top spot for Polish food?

If you want to try hearty Eastern European

classics like kranski, bigos, goulash or cabbage

rolls then you should check out the Polish Club

at Milton. Once a month they also host the

Brisbane Artisan Markets.

In one of the biggest

upsets in Queensland’s

electoral history,

Annastacia Palaszczuk

is the first woman in

Australia to become

Premier of a state

from Opposition

Premier of Queensland
