Like any city, Brisbane has its share of good qualities. Making up for that are the lush gardens and natural sites scattered around the Queensland capital; everyone has something to look forward to.
Here are some sites and activities that will keep you busy, while taking in the charm of this beautiful city:
Immerse in Culture
The Cultural Centre Complex is one of Brisbane’s prized attractions. This place is home to the QAGOMA: the Queensland Art Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art. Also housed in the complex are the State Library, the Queensland Museum, the Queensland Performing Art Centre and the Queensland Theatre Company.
Although most of these hold ticketed events, there is no shortage of free attractions within the vicinity. You can enjoy outdoor film screenings, live performances and exhibitions from local artists.
Enjoy the Food
Like many of the cities in the Land Down Under, Brisbane is blessed with a hodgepodge of choices when it comes to food. Among the delicacies popular in the city includes Chinese cuisine. Peng-you.com.au notes that many Chinese restaurants have made a name in the local food scene. The city offers a delectable selection of dishes to suit any palate.
Frolic on the beach
The beautiful islands of Moreton and Stradebroke are just a quick ferry ride away from the city. These two stunning beaches make great destinations for an extended day trip. Moreton is calm and secluded, featuring a healthy water wildlife residing in the lake within the island. Stradebroke is more developed; it attracts many tourists due to its accessible concrete roads.
There’s never a dull moment in Brisbane—just the sheer abundance of natural parks and reserves are more than enough to warrant a second visit. Everyone in the family will find something to enjoy in this city.
