Australia: A Brisbane City Guide

Australia: A Brisbane City Guide, Brisbane, Australia (B)

Welcome to my Brisbane city guide, which will tell you all you need to know to plan a perfect weekend city break or a more extended stay in Brisbane, Australia.

The Queensland capital of Brisbane is known for its relaxed lifestyle and visitors love the combination of modern architecture with outdoors eating and drinking in a climate that is warm for most of the year.

Brisbane’s origins are also as a British penal colony but the rich natural resources of the surrounding country ensured that it was opened up for settlement in 1838. Since the 19th century Brisbane has grown exponentially and it is now a fine city, set on the serpentine Brisbane River.

The Airtrain is the easiest way to get from Brisbane Airport into the city and also out to the Gold Coast.

Buy an electronic GoCard for travel on buses, trains and CityCat ferries. Another money-saving option is the SEEQ card, which has a range of discounts at 80 attractions around Brisbane and includes public transport.

Tourist information about Brisbane can be found at and the Brisbane Visitor Information Centre is in the Queen Street Mall, between Edward and Albert streets. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
