"Close to shops and buses"

There is a group of small, independent shops, eateries, doctors and other business on Biota street, making it a very convenient spot and a small local hub. It is also close to buses that go via Balsa and Rosemary streets.

In addition, Biota street has the most beautifully crafted benches and community notice board. It is just a stunningly designed group of 3 benches and a notice boars stand, with amazing details. Following the area's traditional tiles with botanical theme of plant-related street names, the benches and the board poles are made in the shape of leaves of stainless steel and timber, resting on carved rocks decorated with mosaics. The steel leaf stems and board plates also have small detailed engravings of different native Australian animals. The amount of talent and thought put into this corner of Biota and Tallow streets is astonishing. The most wealthy and trendy suburbs in Brisbane don't have anything like that!

I just wish that Brisbane City Council would look after this masterpiece a bit better and maintained it a bit more thoughtfully. The timber should not have been painted with brown paint, it should have been regularly oiled to retain its natural look. A few missing timber bits need replacement. And, of course, the locals and visitors should remember not to walk on the garden bed, protect the plants, and take care to not drop rubbish on the ground (there are bins for that). A piece of are like this should be respected and cared for.
