This area has some of Australia’s best museums, including the Gallery of Modern Art, as well as the Queensland Maritime Museum. Hop on a CityCat and cruise up the river, admiring the skyline as you go. Then pay a visit to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary to see some of Australia’s unique wildlife up close. As the sun sets, don’t forget to climb to Mount Coot-tha Lookout to see spectacular views of the city.

CBD, the best area to stay in Brisbane 

Most attractions in the CBD to see and do are relatively close to each other and therefore only really requires some walking but that comes as a blessing too, due to the spectacular scenery and buildings that are wonderfully presented. One of the most popular places to see is the City Hall, which is a stunning rectangular building where the council sit and congregate. The most imposing feature of the City Hall is the 70 metre clock tower and is likened to that of Big Ben as it has Westminster Chimes. The building is also used for various events like concerts, flower shows, exhibitions, college graduations, weddings and royal receptions too. The public square that sits in front of the City Hall is King George Square, which has a monument that is dedicated to King George V and is used for a variety of activities and events like markets, concerts and more. The City Botanic Gardens are open all day with guided tours that give brilliant information on the history of the area. There are lots of rare and unusual botanic species and there is a great collection of bamboo, figs and palms.

 

The Queensland Culture Centre is a multi-venue place that consists of the Queensland Art Gallery, the State Library of Queensland, the Queensland Museum and the Queensland Performing Arts Centre. The Art Gallery contains pieces of artwork that have been produced by local artists as well as some of the world’s most famous personnel like Picasso and Warhol and  there are even big water fountains, sculptures and gardens. The museum features exhibits on the history of the city and there are many items and objects that have been donated to it by the people of the city and entire state. The Performing Arts Centre is where you will find lots of different shows like plays, concerts, orchestras and operas and these can be booked at the centre. Other excellent buildings to check out include the Parliament House, Old Government House, Commissariat Store, St Stephen’s Cathedral, St John’s Cathedral and Albert St Uniting Church. Down by the river you can have a fun stroll along the promenade or even go on a boat cruise to see the sights from another perspective and if that’s not satisfying then participate in a water sport like kayaking. There are heaps of stores, malls and markets to explore in the CBD with the best ones being Queen Street Mall, The Myer Centre, The Wintergarden and Valley Market.

 

The CBD is full of restaurants, pubs and clubs that caters for any person with cuisines from all over the world like Indian, Japanese, Italian, German and traditional foods. For drinks head to Eagle Street or Edward Street as there are some of the most popular drinking establishments. Another great factor about the CBD is the amount of hotels and hostels as there are places to stay at on almost every street and are generally well-priced.
