Visiting Brisbane is like finding yourself in an adventure wonderland. There’s so much to do and see, and your every desire is catered for. A few of the Brisbane attractions include quiet strolls along the river to the adrenaline rush of skydiving, spending an afternoon meandering through one of the many museums, or hitting the jackpot – or at least trying – in the casino.
In addition to its major galleries and museums, Brisbane has a host of attractions. For a taste of Australiana, Australia’s native fauna is a feature of wildlife parks at several locations around Brisbane and the region. Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary at Fig Tree Pocket is the world’s largest koala sanctuary. The riverside garden setting is also home to a large community of kangaroos, wallabies, emus, wombats, and native birds. A great spot to visit very close the Brisbane city.
The excitement of roulette and blackjack isn’t just for after dark. Conrad International Treasury Casino, in the magnificent sandstone Treasury Building at the top of Queen Street, is open 24 hours with more than 100 gaming tables and more than 1,000 gaming machines to keep visitors entertained. The Casino also has four restaurants and seven bars to celebrate.
Brisbane’s green image is largely due to the multitude of parks including the magnificent City Gardens, established in 1855 on the banks of the river’s Town Reach. Palms, Moreton Bay figs, a mangrove walk, a rainforest area, and a cafe are some of the features of this stately park. Mt Coot-tha Gardens at Toowong has themed sections including a scented garden, arid zone, cascades, and waterfalls that weave through rainforest terraces and a geodesic domed greenhouse for tropical plants.
So no matter how long your stay in the wonderful city of Brisbane is, the Brisbane attractions will have everyone busy day in and day out and leave you with a sense of accomplishment at the end of your stay.
