It’s been 3 years since my last visit to Brisbane, and it’s not surprising that things change. For the most part, I like the changes I see; however, one change that’s disappointing is the loss of the Mangrove Boardwalk, which was located in the City Botanic Gardens (Mianjin). The Boardwalk was one of the most memorable experience I had in Brisbane. It was authentic nature, right in the heart of the city. 

Last January, a storm destroyed sections of the Boardwalk and the City decided not to repair it. At a time when Brisbane is spending 72 million on the Riverwalk project, it seems foolish not to spend 1.8 million to restore the Mangrove Boardwalk.
