Fun of Exploring the City of Brisbane and its Surrounds
The city of Brisbane, Queensland, with the Brisbane River running through it, certainly buzzes with things to do. Go to South Bank and browse through the numerous weekend markets, or pay a visit to the interesting Brisbane museum. Riverlife and the Storey Bridgeclimb walk are also highlights for many. Meander leisurely through the Botanical Gardens, the peaceful setting and display of flora there is quite awe-inspiring. Or else visit the largest sub-tropical garden in Roma Street Parklands. Go and see the Old Windmill at Wickham Terrace, which is the oldest building in Brisbane. You can also book at Hot Air Balloon ride from Brisbane now with pickup services from the City hotels
You can tour Brisbane by just walking around and enjoying it all in at your own pace. Or else if you prefer, take a guided tour of the city or go on one of the cruise boats and admire the city and landscape from the river.
If the urge to shop grabs you, then head for the Queen Street Mall in the city centre, one of Australias most famous shopping mall experiences, where the shops offer everything you could possibly want. Buy souvenirs to take back with you.
While in Brisbane, why not do something you would not do at home such as going on a hot air balloon ride. Glide over the countryside marvelling at the wonderful panoramic view of Brisbane and surrounding landscape, seen from the sky.
Visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary where you can hold a koala bear in your arms or feed a kangaroo. If nature is your thing, see Moreton Bay Marine Park, full of wildlife and home to dolphins. Watching them at play is great entertainment.
