Brisbane

Travel guide - Brisbane

Before exploring Brisbane itself, climb to the top of Mount Coot Tha and enjoy the unique viewpoint over the city. You will perhaps notice the remains of Brisbane's colonial past, notably in the form of the Old Government House.

Take the family - and the buckets and spades - and settle down on the beach, right in the centre of town: at the Street Beach. While you're there, you might perhaps lose yourself in a novel that you have found at the Up Lit Writers’ Festival. Next it's time for adventure; set off to meet some wildlife at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

Proud of its Aboriginal origins, Brisbane is a multicultural city as demonstrated by the Buddha’s Birthday Festival and the Brisbane Festival.
With friends, discover the streets of Brisbane suddenly invaded by the crowds at the Anywhere Theatre Festival or the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.
Stroll along Moreton Bay and admire the yachts at the Bluewater Festival or watch the runners who come to break records at the Bridge to Brisbane.

If you're a fan of tennis, don't miss the the Brisbane International, when the world’s best players come to battle it out in Brisbane. Finally, the 4 MBS Festival of Classics and its many classical music concerts confirms that Brisbane is also an oasis of relaxation.
