Top 5 / Australia

Brisbane is the capital of Australia’s Queensland state. On your next visit Down Under, add these must-see attractions in Brisbane to your list.

 

Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mount Coot-tha
Located at the foot of Mount Coot-tha, the botanical garden offers free entrance. Set on more than 138 acres, the garden houses a variety of indigenous and exotic plant life.

 

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
When you think of Australian animals, you likely think of koalas. Situated in a suburb of Brisbane, the koala sanctuary was founded in 1927, making it the oldest of its kind. In addition to the furry animal, visitors find other Australian animals, including wallabies, wombats, kangaroos and dingoes.

 

South Bank Parklands
A recreational attraction, South Bank Parklands is located along Brisbane River. Set on about 42 acres of parkland, the destination hosts annual cultural events and features restaurants, outdoor activities and a Ferris wheel.

 

Story Bridge
Opened in 1940, the iconic Brisbane landmark spans Brisbane River. For those not afraid of heights, take advantage of the Story Bridge Adventure Climb. The experience takes climbers of all fitness levels on the bridge for an up-close view. A variety of climbs are available, including dawn and twilight options.

 

Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art
The gallery specializes in contemporary Australian, Asian and Pacific art. In addition to temporary and permanent exhibitions, the galleries offer a children’s arts center and film screenings. Admission is free.
