A Look At Some Of Brisbane's Top Attractions.

It's very easy for potential visitors to overlook the city of Brisbane, the third-largest city in Australia, for alternative destinations such as Sydney and Melbourne. Brisbane isn't a particularly renowned part of Australia but has been entrusted with important events such as the 1982 Commonwealth Games and the 2001 Goodwill Games. It's a young city that is lathered in artistic beauty and thriving establishments, perfect for tourists who wish to get off the beaten track and explore some of Australia's hidden gems. The region of Queensland itself deserves recognition as the home of the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree National Park. Firstly, Brisbane caters to all types of tourists, from those who wish to experience the outside life to those who love the bustling energy of the city. Once your Brisbane flights have touched down at Brisbane Airport, get yourself psyched for some serious sightseeing. Mount Coot-tha sits high above the city, offering entrancing views of the subtle skyline. The location also features Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium and the Brisbane Botanical Gardens, great for all ages, epitomising Brisbane's tropical climate and laidback lifestyle Families may also wish to pack their bags and take the Zoo Train from the city centre to Alma Park Zoo, a reasonably cheap day out with a vast selection of multi-cultural wildlife, from Baboons to Burmese Pythons. Other fantastic wildlife spots include Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the world's largest Koala sanctuary, full of cuddly Koala Bears and hungry Kangaroos. For a more urban tourist, the city itself features plenty of pleasant surprises. The Wheel of Brisbane is a fantastic viewing platform shaped as a Ferris wheel, great for grabbing a photo of the city's skyline, complete with an excellent shot of Brisbane River, flowing serenely through the heart of the city. Visitors travelling at the right time of year should be sure to check out the Brisbane Festival. A congregation usually forms around the South Bank Parklands where various musical events are held as well as market stalls with food and drink. It's free for everyone and the firework display to cap it all off is magnificent, worthy of anyone's time. Queen Street Mall is the ideal place to visit if you wish to indulge in a spot of retail therapy. There is a large variety of shops selling an assortment of items, foods and clothing. In terms of food, the cuisine is incredibly diverse, from local menus found at Tukka, in the West End, to Japanese-themed meals from Sakura. To effectively round it off,Fortitude Valley is a vibrant area of Brisbane, perfect for visitors to catch a spot of live music.
