Brisbane is a lively urban city situated in northern state of Queensland, Australia. Named after the river on which it lies, Brisbane has a vibrant atmosphere, modern look and is surrounded by spectacular nature and the best coastline the country has to offer. There is plenty to see and do in Brisbane including outdoor dining, shopping and a range of exhibitions and cultural activities.
Brisbane has a mild, sub-tropical climate with hot summers and cool winters. This ensures fantastic weather all year round as temperatures rarely drop below twenty degrees. Begin your Brisbane holidays by flying to Brisbane International Airport, located just twenty kilometres north-east of the city centre. There are train, bus and taxi options available upon arrival to transfer you to your destination. The time zone is GMT +10.
A great place to start your Brisbane holidays would be at the famous Brisbane river. Take a cruise down stream to see the iconic Story Bridge and beautiful views of the city whilst enjoying lunch or dinner on board. For those interested in getting some exercise, a stand-up paddle-board lesson is an unforgettable adventure that is fun for all ages. Day and night guided kayak tours are also available. There are several beautiful riverside parks to explore including the City Botanic Gardens, South Bank Parklands and the New Farm Park. At the Roma Street Parklands, visitors can relax in the city's largest sub-tropical garden.
At the popular Queen Street Mall, there are over 1,000 shops to choose from and a wide selection of restaurants, pubs and cafés. Listen to free concerts during the City Sounds programme, held throughout the year at various locations. To meet some of Australia's most beautiful creatures, visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary where visitors can feed koalas, kangaroos, tasmanian devils and other Australian wildlife by hand.
