- Take a ferry on the Brisbane River. There are plenty of boat tours of Brisbane and CityCat ferries to help you get around but my tip is the free Cityhopper. It just launched on 1 July and links various Brisbane hot spots, including Eagle Street and the South Bank, along with the inner city stretch of the Brisbane River and runs from 6am until midnight.
- Kangaroo Point is a green area with spectacular views of Brisbane city centre and impressive structures including Story Bridge and natural sandstone cliffs, both of which you can climb on tours.
- Brisbane is warm and tropical all year round, but summer humidity can get too much for some visitors between December and February. The other seasons are milder and less sticky, and I think there’s no more perfect time to visit than in September, at the start of spring.
- There’s nothing quite like cuddling a koala. As the largest sanctuary in the world for Australia’s iconic marsupials, a visit to Lone Pine makes for a memorable experience. Other Australian animals such as kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, dingoes, snakes, and even crocodiles live in this compact sanctuary nestled on the Brisbane River.
- With panoramic views of Brisbane, the Mount Coot-tha Botanic Gardens is a favourite attraction for locals and visitors alike. Located seven kilometres from the city, the various themed gardens take visitors on a journey through 52 hectares of horticulture. Housing the largest collection of Australian rainforest trees in the world, the gardens are also dedicated to fragrant plants, bamboo, cactus, wetland plants, indigenous plants, ferns, and bonsai.
