Brisbane General Tourist Info

Brisbane Queensland capital

Situated along the banks of the wide, brown Brisbane River, Queensland's capital is a city that people don't always appreciate until they spend some time there, but where the welcome is as warm as the subtropical weather. The city of Brisbane is green and leafy - Moreton Bay fig trees provide shade, and in summer, the haze of jacarandas competes with the blaze of poinciana trees. Brisbane’s people will urge one to discover the city, which is rich in history and character, and get to know the locals – something very easy, as they will start chatting with just about anyone.

Brisbane is famous for its timber Queenslanders cottages and houses set high on stumps to meet the breeze, with wide verandas to keep out the noon sun. In some of the suburbs, Queenslanders have been turned into restaurants, cafes and various shops selling antiques, clothes, and house wares, etc.
In the contemporary city centre, gracious colonial sandstone buildings stand right to modern glass towers. One may enjoy a wonderful walk in the botanic gardens, bike along the river pathways, have a drink in a beer garden, or get out on the river on a City Cat ferry. There are several bridges that cross the river, of which the most popular and attractive being the Story Bridge. Getting around Brisbane is cheap and easy, and one will always find some great food, including delicious seafood.
