Brisbane Festival – Sunsuper Riverbreakfast

Yet another long due post, this time about one Brisbane Festival event that took place a day after QBE Riverfire. Sunsuper Riverbreakfast is a free breakfast event for Brisbanites and visitors to enjoy at Goodwill Bridge. The brekky is sponsored by Alliance Française Brisbane and hence the Fench breakfast offerings.

On that day, I had just attended the 8am mass at St Stephen’s Cathedral (yes, thanks to Brisbane Transport two additional services on Sunday & public holiday morning passing through my current suburb). I was aware of this event since I got the Brisbane Festival booklet. So after the mass, I walked to QUT Gardens Point campus looking for Goodwill Bridge. I was lost for a while though, circling around Old Government House instead. But in the end, I managed to get to Goodwill Bridge.

The Goodwill Bridge was guarded by a private security officer. And the queues were already long. Most of the ‘breakfast-seekers’ could speak French, I guess members or students of the main sponsor. The volunteers put cheese, strawberries, croissant and I forgot the rest (due to the old nature of this post). You could take apples and yoghurts (Vaalia brand) separately in another queue.

As the Goodwill Bridge became more and more crowded, I decided to eat my brekky at South Bank Parklands ‘dead’ food court area. It tasted good (since it’s free!). You could also take a bottle of sprinkle water from the Mater Hill end of the bridge. Unfortunately, I didn’t take and anyway even if I took it I would regret it because I don’t really like sprinkle water. I got a sprinkle water for another Brisbane Festival event, West End Live.

That was not the first time though I got free brekky (I think there is another post on free brekky in this blog). Another free brekky event was Channel Seven ACT Kids appeal at Central Station offered free brekky as well with Channel Seven Brisbane personalities (Rod, Kay, Shane, Pat and John).

Well, I definitely am looking forward to more free brekky events be it for charity or just for the sake of fun. But for now, corn flakes will be my staple breakfast. Enjoy your day, have a great weekend! 😀
