Both Dirk and I arrived in Brisbane yesterday, and were given a great tour of the city by Rosemary and Eric Kopittke in the afternoon. Being complete genies we ended up visiting a local graveyard, to Mount Coot-Tha, and another visit to Paton Street (named after one of my Paton ancestors who arrived here in 1849)! In the evening we had a great meal at Unlock the Past's Helen Smith's home, along with the rest of the team.
