Brisbane is the capital of Queensland, a popular state in Australia. It is the most populated city in the state with a population of over 2.5 million. Our holiday in Brisbane was quite adventurous and entertaining for the whole family. The city has several architectural wonders like bridges and skyscrapers. Located on the famous Brisbane River, the city is well known for its cruises and ferries. Some of the top attractions in the city are as follows:
Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
Located at Jesmond Road, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is one of the most-visited places in the city. Here you can find several species of native animals that live in forested lands. This koala sanctuary is first of its kind and expands over a vast area of 44 acres. Besides koalas, the place has lots of kangaroos and platypus. Visitors can hand-feed these animals and watch them closely. The entry fee for every adult is 14 AUD. If you are interested in Australian wildlife this place would definitely amaze you.
South Bank Parklands
South Bank Parklands can be best described as a cultural destination that illustrates the lifestyle of the city. It is a perfect place for family outing and day tours. The lush green parklands expand over an area of 17 hectares and offer lots of entertainment venues, beautiful river views, exquisite dining centers, and multicultural restaurants. You can also find lots of recreational facilities like playgrounds, pools, and art galleries. The best part of our day tour was the ferry ride and the stunning views it offered.
O’Reilly’s Lamington National Park
Our trip to O’Reilly’s Lamington National Park was the most memorable part of our Brisbane holiday. The place is popular for its Rainforest Retreat which is a UNESCO-listed destination. We particularly enjoyed the treetop canopy tour that seemingly took us to a different world. It is a great place for hiking and sightseeing.
