Some people fly into Brisbane, and then hire a car and explore the hinterland, or head for the beaches, forgetting that Brisbane offers all the rich and diverse cultural life of any great city. So why not enjoy a book holiday apartments Brisbane and enjoy the vibrancy of the city.
It’s warm and sub tropical most of the year. Through the heart of the city runs the Brisbane River – hop on one of the CityCat ferries and explore the city by water. There is even a free Cityhopper service that connects several of the city’s main areas.
Translink gives you all the information you need for getting around the city by bus, train or ferry.
The city hosts a CityCycle bike hire service. Who needs a car when you can cycle along the riverside pathways and around the city. There are 2000 bikes available across the inner city, with 24 hour access. Like many of these services, the first 30 minutes is free.
Did you know? Winter in Brisbane is peak time for visitors from colder southern climes, with the city’s average daytime temperatures nudging the balmy 70s Fahrenheit (or 20s Celsius if you prefer).
The Moreton Bay Bug may not sound very appetising, but it is a famous local delicacy and no holiday to Brisbane is complete without it. Air New Zealand recommends: “Try the delicious little lobster drizzled with Thai-style peach salsa, scoffed on the riverfront terrace at Eagle Street Pier. “ Sounds like good advice to me.
Get a taste for nature at the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens which shows off the city, ocean and mountain vistas – don’t miss the Aboriginal Plant trail. And what trip to Australia is complete with a visit to see the iconic Koala – see them at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.
