The South Bank

The South Bank

Halans

The city does not have an overload of hot sightseeing spots. However, there are several historical houses, museums and churches you can visit. Maybe it is a nice idea to stroll around in the Paddington and the Spring Hill area. These are the neighbourhoods where you can still see the typical Queenlander houses with their broad verandahs, intricate fretwork and iron roofs. On the south bank of the river, you’ll find the South Bank Parklands. This is an artificial ‘paradise’ with lagoons, shops, tropical gardens and the Kodak Beach where you can easily spend a day.

10 minutes west of the CBD is Mt Coot-tha, a popular place for tourists to get a good view of Brisbane and the surrounds. Most days you can see Moreton Island which is around 50km away.

Botanic Garden

Edit This

We try to visit as many botanic gardens as possible, if we visit a place. The Brisbane Botanic Gardens is again another nice example, with lots of palmtrees and large bamboos, and even mangrove boardwalks, along the Brisbane River.

Roma park

Edit This

This place is huge (for a public park), simply jaw-dropping impressive. A magnificent collection of plants, an endless trail of waterfalls, no ... cascades! And the very special 'Fern Gully' walkway is sensational.
