The state capital of Queensland is a nice city. It's a compromise between a large city and small town, but has a great quality of life. There are many gardens, parks, and river where you can get about by public transport and it even has an artificial beach. A great place to spend a few days during a trip to Australia with an excellent climate.
A few km from the center of Brisbane (you can go by boat from the city) is the koala zoo, the oldest in Australia (founded in 1927). For $30, you can see koalas up close, and even feed them, see all kinds of native reptiles and see how a dog can control a flock of sheep, .... It was well worth the entrance fee to see the Koala Sanctuary.
I love photography, even although I don't know a lot about it. I just enjoy photographing details around me, especially when I go to parks and gardens. I also entertain myself at home in my garden taking pictures of my cats. You are never bored with a camera. And even in the rain, you can always bring a masseter inside and put it by a window. I recommend taking pictures everyday, as an exercise, just like people practise sports everyday. Photography also improves daily.
Built during the Great Depression, it was opened to the public in 1940 and has been converted into one of the city's icons. As far as I could read, but I can't confirm it, you can climb the bridge with a tour in just over two hours, but knowing the price of crossing the Sydney Bridge like this, I didn't dare to ask how much.
This school offers English courses in Australia and is located in a modern building in the heart of downtown Brisbane. It is situated one block away from the famous Queen Street Mall, with all its shops and cafes. It is situated only a few minutes' walk through the famous park along the south bank of the river.

Located very close to the financial city of Brisbane, on the other bank of the river, West End is the cultural quarter and it is a liberal city. Its two main streets Boundary Street and Vulture Street, are the life and soul of the neighborhood and perfectly represent the variety of cultures. This variety can be clearly seen in the extensive foods from the world as well as different types of bars. There are other nightlife spots in the city, but certainly the most fun and culture ones can be found in West End, where live concerts are happening day in and day out. Undoubtedly, the most active and lively district of the city. I recommend spending time here if you are in the area, you will not be disappointed.
It might even be called the Market in Brisbane, it is the most popular and crowded. Early risers start setting up their stalls at 4.30 in the morning and the market is very packed at 6-10 in the morning. Then it quietly runs until about 2 in the afternoon. Situated along the river, it is an eminently fresh produce market, but in the west wing we can also find clothes and other stalls. The atmosphere is West End 100% but its popularity attracts people of all kinds and from all over. It is definitely the event of the neighborhood, and on the way there one can find the most colorful neighborhood. I recommend visiting this market as it is lively and colorful. You will enjoy it.
It is a Neoclassical building, with its identifiable 92 metre clock tower. Its construction finished in 1930 and it's now one of the city's architectural icons situated in the centre of Brisbane in King George square, which also deserves a tour.
Its design began in 1888 with a French Gothic style, but its construction was not begun until 1901, and its consecration didn't come until a few years ago. What stands out most about the temple is the harmony achieved by fusing the modern to the ancient, with the Passion painted in abstract style.
This is where you can see great metropolis in compact form; Brisbane is a really lovely city to visit. You can see the greatness of contemporary art, as well as it's humanity, which is what gives charm to the city. Behind the Story Bridge is the suburb of Riverside, the business district and huge buildings. In addition to offices, there is a large bustling market every Sunday morning, livening up a place that normally has a serious side. But Riverside is especially nice to watch from the Brisbane CityCat ro, a very Anglo-Saxon city center!
As well as plenty of amusements for the whole family, they have a variety of Australian animals - koalas, kangaroos, emus, and many varieties of reptiles and crocodiles. Dreamworld is located one hour from the city of Brisbane.
