Queensland is a fantastic place to visit, but its capital city is often overlooked. Tourists often flock to the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast, missing out on everything that Brisbane has to offer. However, Brisbane is one of the most unique capital cities in Australia, and you would be denying yourself a wonderful experience if you didn’t visit.
Here are 6 reasons you simply must visit Brisbane:
- There is a Beach in the Heart of the City
Yes, really. There’s a man-made beach at South Bank as well as an interactive water play area, world class eateries and river views. In a place where the weather is warm a lot of the time, it’s worth experiencing the city and the relaxation of a swim on the beach all in one day.
- The Night Life
The nightlife in Brisbane is pretty spectacular and Fortitude Valley is its own fun little hub of dining, dancing and everything in between. With its multitude of restaurants, pubs, bars and clubs, it’s the ideal place to let your hair down among people who are friendly and relaxed.
- Adventures in the Heart of the City
Experience a capital city where you can go rock climbing and take easy hikes that will give you panoramic views of the towns below. Brisbane really is a thriving city that has it all. You can literally enjoy activities of any style without needing to travel too far.
- The World’s First Koala Sanctuary
The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is a great place to visit. It has been noted by the Guinness Book of Records as being the first and largest koala sanctuary in the world. You’ll have the opportunity to get up-close and personal with koalas, but that’s not all. You’ll also get to hand feed other Aussie animals, view free bird flight shows, and so much more.
- Check Out the Art Scene
Two of the best art galleries in Queensland are within walking distance of each other, conveniently located in the cultural centre of South Bank. The Queensland Art Gallery is a great place to get lost in for hours, and GOMA is an excellent, modern gallery that hosts exhibitions that are on an international scale. GOMA has a great children’s art centre where children can partake in art activities too.
- The Unique Shopping Scene
It’s exciting when you hit the streets to shop and it’s not all of the same chain stores that you have back home. In Brisbane, you’ll find such an eclectic mix of local designers, antiques and collectables, vintage fashion, and homewares. You might even need to buy another suitcase to bring it all home.
