Custom House, Queen Street, Brisbane

Customs House is in Queen Street, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Customs House was opened in 1889, and was originally used for the collection of Customs duty. The building is a Brisbane landmark known for it's distinctive copper dome.[1]

The downstream end of the Brisbane central business district was selected to spur the development of wharves in the precinct known as Petrie Bight.[1]

The building is now leased by the University of Queensland and was refurbished in the 1990s. There is a restaurant and function centre within the building, and regular concerts and art exhibitions are also held here. The Long Room was once the place customs business was transacted.[1] Today the room is used for lectures and dinners.

Customs House is within reach of the CityCat catamaran ferry service, as well as the Free Loop Bus - quoted from wikipedia.

Sekarang ni pertengahan Spring, so bunga Jacaranda ni berkembang la selama kira-kira 6 minggu....memang cantik suasana musim jacaranda ni....Gambar-gambar di bawah di ambik di Lex Ord Park, sebelah rumah sy.

The city of Brisbane in Australia has a local reputation of having a significant population of Jacaranda trees. The University of Queensland in the city's inner west has a very high concentration of the tree, and due to the impressive display of purple flowers in mid-Spring, which wind up littering vast sections of the suburbs, local folklore claims that "one won't start studying for exams until the jacarandas have molted". At Sydney University there exists a similar expression "by the time the jacaranda in the main quadrangle flowers, it's too late to start studying for exams".

This has led to the slang name "exam tree" being attached to the plant. At the University of Queensland students even maintain a joke superstition that if a Jacaranda bloom falls on their head during exam time, they will fail an exam. The bad luck can be broken by catching another bloom before it hits the ground.

The reason for the Jacaranda's proliferation in Brisbane is often attributed to the thirties and forties, when new mothers leaving the maternity hospital were given a jacaranda sapling to plant.

Jacarandas in bloom have become closely associated with Brisbane and South East Queensland. The Brisbane City Council have used jacarandas to line avenues, and commercial developments in some areas, particularly along the Brisbane River have incorporated jacarandas into their landscape design. The trees are common in parks throughout the city, most notably in a long curved avenue in the inner city New Farm Park, in Goodna, and in private gardens. Brisbane's hilly geography allows views of the city and suburbs in which the brightly coloured flowers can be easily seen for miles. The jacaranda has become so much a part of the city's identity that contemporary art, particularly of streetscapes, often incorporates the flowering jacaranda, despite the fact that it only flowers for approximately six weeks from September through October. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacaranda
