Brisbane has been described by many as one of the most livable cities because each neighborhood offers something different so whether you like walking around with your friends soaking up culture down Southbank Parklands or catching live music, visiting the zoo and going horseback riding, Brisbane is the best place to go to.
Chill Around South Bank
When you’re dreaming of Brisbane, Queensland there’s one place that can make your dreams come true. South Bank is a haven for all sorts of activities and adventures with an infinite number to choose from; like handpicking herbs at Epicurious Garden or running away to the free man-made beach!
From the moment you step onto South Bank’s carefully manicured lawn, it becomes clear that there are endless things to do. The Epicurious Garden is a must-visit for any nature lover: with free herbs and plants available for harvest at your fingertips, this garden truly has everything one needs!
If time and weather permit, be sure to visit Brisbane’s man-made beach; children will love swimming in its crystal blue waters while adults can enjoy relaxing on sunbeds nearby. With so many activities waiting around every corner of the South Bank – from catching waves or biking through trees – I guarantee everyone who visits will have an unforgettable experience.
The Wheel of Brisbane is the perfect place to catch a panoramic view of all that the South Bank has to offer. You can see everything from this 60 meter high observation wheel! The best part about it? It’s free and just 5 minutes away from downtown Brisbane, so you don’t have an excuse not to go take in some breathtaking views with your friends or family today!
Go Shopping At Brisbane’s Cbd
If you’re looking for a place to have an excellent time, then head straight over Brisbane’s CBD! It is where all of the action happens and there are always plenty of things happening here. You’ll find everything from music performances to art galleries with exhibitions that won’t disappoint.
There really isn’t anywhere better than this if you want something different out in town on your day off work or after class while browsing through some retail therapy sessions before heading back home at night so don’t miss it next chance you get when visiting Australia–it doesn’t hurt even more knowing how close it is to our Airbnb apartment just across the river!
While you’re in the neighborhood, make sure to check out:
- Treasury Casino and Hotel
- Queen Street, The Myer Centre or Wintergarden for the best shopping!
- Brisbane City Hall in order to check out the Museum of Brisbane that’s located inside
- Brisbane Arcade – a heritage-listed shopping arcade that was built in the early 20s and it gives you all those art deco feelings!
Stargaze At The Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium
When the sun sets and you’re feeling adventurous, head to Mount Coot-tha’s Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium. With shows for every age, this planetarium is not your average museum; it has one of Queensland’s biggest theaters! You can see a star show during the day or stargaze at night while viewing some of Australia’s oldest asteroid fragments in their collection – where else will you find that?
From the city, you can take bus number 471 or buses 598 or 599 from various suburbs and get off at Mount Coot-Tha Viewpoint. Open everyday except Monday, general admission is free with some shows costing $16.40 AUD per person.
