Norma says: I love South Brisbane cos that's where South Bank is. I began my new life as an Aussie there, (arriving at the station) I worked there as a teenager, I took my children to play there, and to see Expo 88. The place is full of wonderful memories. When I go there now I feel I'm on holiday.
