Into the Gold Coast
As mentioned, when moving up the coast to Brisbane, we left New South Wales for Queensland. Queensland has passed some very tough anti-gang laws recently that are being challenged in court. In particular, these are anti-biker gang laws: a group of three bikies (Australian bikers) belonging to an Organisation, who have tattoos and are wearing leathers is grounds to arrest them. Even skull rings and club emblems, colours, patches, and club tattoos, all are illegal in Queensland. That sense of law and order is strong in Brisbane.
