  STS41D-41-0062 Brisbane, Queensland, Australia September 1984
Australia's third largest city, Brisbane (near center of image), is located midway up the east coast of Australia. A segment of the Brisbane River is visible as it empties into Moreton Bay. The highly reflective white area north of where the Brisbane River enters Moreton Bay is Brisbane International Airport. Moreton Island can be identified by the extensive sandy, highly reflective area near the south end of the island near the top left. Several shallow and sandy bottom channels can be seen in the water between the southern end of Moreton Island and the northern end of North Stradbroke Island. Several islands are visible in Moreton Bay. The darker (greenish looking) terrain scattered throughout the image is forested lands.
