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.

Mazi Restaurant Review

My mom and I recently dined at Mazi, a Greek restaurant in West Reading, Pennsylvania. We were in town for a family event and decided to take advantage of the lovely early fall evening by enjoying dinner outside. The restaurant is popular, so we called right when they opened to make a last-minute reservation. Thankfully, they had availability for outdoor seating.

A Taste of Greece

Prepare your taste buds for the trip of a lifetime in Greece. About 100 Greek products — from wines, cheese and fruits to honey and oils — earned a Protected Designation of Origin from the European Union, and the country’s most beloved dishes include Greek Choriatiki salad, tzatziki, souvlaki and moussaka, with its layers of eggplant, potato, minced meat and bechamel. And those are only a few of the many highlights.

The Neon Museum Receives Famed Planet Hollywood Sign

Adults who came of age in the 1990s will remember fondly the iconic Planet Hollywood sign. And now, that sign can be seen at The Neon Museum in Las Vegas — the museum recently acquired the restaurant sign that originally rotated upon an iconic column pedestal in front of Caesars Palace Forum Shops and Colosseum. Planet Hollywood International/Earl Enterprises donated the sign, currently being assessed for conservation and display plans.

Seek Wellbeing in Greece

The Greek tradition of health and wellness runs deep; travelers can find a multitude of therapies to meet their wellbeing needs, from healing spas, herbal therapies, hypnotherapy, massages and more. In Greece, the approach to wellness focuses on the “whole” and the ways in which the mind, body and soul interact. A state of balance is achieved through a good relationship between the emotional and natural state, which can be found throughout Greece at its more than 800 medicinal spas.
