- 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.

- Per capita Iceland has the highest number of book and magazine publications and 10% of the country’s population will publish a book in their lifetimes.
- The “geographical significance” part of Þingvellir being dubbed a UNESCO site is due to the fact that this is one of only TWO places in the entire world where you can see two of the earth’s tectonic plates meeting above the earth’s surface (the other is in Africa). The North American and Eurasian plates jut up out of the ground here in Þingvellir, moving apart roughly 2 cm per year. You can even go diving/snorkelling between the plates in nearby Þingvallavatn lake.
- Iceland is home to the very first parliament grounds in Europe. In the year 930 AD, the first Parliament met in Iceland in what is today Þingvellir National Park. The site has since been dubbed a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its cultural, historical, and geographical significance.
- Surprisingly, another large section of Iceland is covered in glaciers. Glaciers are responsible for carving out everything in Iceland that hasn’t been shaped by magma and earthquakes.
- Iceland makes up for its lack of fast food with its bevvy of downright weird traditional foods. Along with things like whale, puffin, and dried fish, visitors can also try fermented shark, sheep’s head, and even pickled ram’s testicles. The even weirder part is that some of these dishes can be found in just about ANY kind of restaurant in Iceland (including a Mexican place that advertised “traditional Icelandic dishes”).
