Managed to run into two other Flyertalkers on the walking tour from Hyde Park today. Now enjoying an excellent lunch in the CBD with cocobird and plainsman.

On the train into town. Will see if I can get settled at the Marriott and then improvise a morning/afternoon plan from there. Prob wander around a park or the botanical garden.

I arrived last night and getting ready for breakfast at the Hilton, open to suggestions for meeting up/ wandering around today! I’ll be moving to my weekend hotel at some point today (IC).

Vague plan to walk around the Botanic Garden area, eventually meeting up with GrjApp at The Calyx ~10:45-11ish. Toting a dark green backpack with a yellow FT tag.

Checked in at Hilton, cleaning up work inbox. No firm plans, might hit up new microbrewery/bistro called Frenchies near Green Square for lunch and/or beers.
