Additional info and tips about visiting Brisbane

Things to do and places of interest in Brisbane

Brisbane has more than enough to see and do, but a few places that are key include: Moreton Island and Tangalooma, South Bank Parklands and Cultural Centre, North Stradbroke Island, the Australia Zoo, China Town, and Mt. Coot-tha and Botanic Gardens. If you have time, stop in at the XXXX Brewery and Ale House or the Wheel of Brisbane. There is also the Treasury Casino to try out or the Brisbane Story Bridge Climb adventure. Take a cruise on the Brisbane River or enjoy the afternoon at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

Tips and Tricks for visiting Brisbane

Like other cities in Australia, tipping for excellent service has become much more widespread; therefore, adding a tip to your bill is always appreciated. If you want to get the most out of the city without spending the maximum, buy a Go Card for your trip. You will save approximately 30 percent on a single ticket. If you want a true Brisbane experience like a commoner, find a hostel, and see if you can get your room for free. Many will give you a discount or free night’s stay just for cleaning for a few hours. Brisbane is home to plenty of internet cafes, but connections are rather slow. Also, you must try goon, which is a perfect wine to take to the park for a picnic.
