Brisbane - Capital of Queensland, Australia

  11 votes
Page: 1 2

Brisbane is a beautiful river city, and is the capital city of Queensland. It has a wide meandering river through the centre that the city is based around. The transport in the city is excellent - freeways everywhere, ferries up and down the river, and a good city train system. Very modern and busy - good proximity to the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast as well as the Great Barrier Reef and Fraser Island. The weather is mild to warm - generally above 25 degrees in the summer and up to 20 degrees in the winter.

Favourite spots:
The river. The CBD is built inside a bend in the river. Southbank (the entertainment and play area of the city) is across the river from the CBD and has excellent cafes and Sunday markets.

What's really great:
The River Festival held in August/September each year. The fireworks and displays easily rival Sydney's New Year and Australia Day celebrations.

The river is beautiful and one of the best ways to see things is to walk around along the various pathways or catch a ferry along the river.

Excellent cafes along the river at Southbank. Eating out in the city is reasonably cheap and there is an excellent variety of nationalities and styles represented
