The Best of Brisbane

By James P

Another place tourists should familiarize themselves with Australia in Brisbane. As the capital of Queensland, Brisbane enjoys a sunny climate with beaches right down the road. Just head over to the Gold Coast beaches, and you will see what all the fuss is about. If you are into shopping, the Central Business District is the right place to start your journey off.

But, it is the South Bank of Brisbane where the city makes its mark. With outstanding entertainment and great cultural experiences, you can enjoy Brisbane, as the Brisbane River flows by. After touring here, you may just want to get up and move to Brisbane for good. It all becomes that more alluring, knowing you can take a swim during lunch with palm trees blowing in the breeze before heading back to work.

Other areas you should spend some time in include the Fortitude Valley and West End. This part of Brisbane offers the best bars, nightclubs, and cafes. Check out establishments like the Gordita Bar & Restaurant, if you are looking for some stellar Southern Spanish cuisine, or head over to Kwan Brothers for the best Asian noodles you will ever have. Looking for some exquisite craft beers. Places like the Yard Bird Ale House and the Archive Beer Boutique will tickle your fancy. You may be growing tired of the city after a while. Do not worry! Head over to the City Botanic Gardens for some peace of mind.
