Brisbane has so much to see and do that the tourist can be forgiven because he felt a little confused. Want to see the best sights without having to skip something else but where do you start from? A great starting point will be a daylong tour that has little to do with everything. You can take a bus ride around Brisbane to see the view, then go on a cruise and also see some good views and indigenous Australian wildlife too.
A great sightseeing just makes sure it includes all of Brisbane's best sights, such as the oldest home, the Newstead House, where you will be able to walk around the grounds and explore the river. Significant buildings such as the Town Hall, St. John and the parliamentary house are also not forgotten and are on their way.
So what's up first? City bus tour and morning tea at the Breakfast Creek Hotel near the Brisbane River. Afterwards, take a tour of Newstead House. Imagine how it must have been to live there all those years ago. At that time there were not so many buildings but lots of bushes and trees.
From there, you get to the ship for sailing. River travel will give you a good idea of why Brisbane is called River City. You will see all the most prestigious houses, Custom House sandstone buildings and many other historic buildings. Your riverboat will take you under the beautiful story bridge that stretches across the river, and you will be able to see Kangaroo Point Cliffs before landing on the South Bank to show off everything it offers. The South Bank is known as Mecca of Coffee, where you can enjoy the flavor of coffee all over the world. From here you can go to the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, which is adjacent to the South Bank and absolutely free for visitors. You can easily relax there and see some rare plant species in the gardens. And that morning!
This afternoon will bring even more pleasure by visiting one of the largest koalas of temples in Australia, Lone Pine. You will actually be able to change the koala, as these little creatures appear to be hidden even in the wild. Other Australian natives see it there; wombats, wallabies, kangaroos and more. You can also provide free roaming kangaroos with your hands.
On your way home you will be taken to one of Brisbane's most well-known prospects in Mt Coot-tha, for views that include entire land areas, including the Great Division over Moreton Bay and other islands. This mountain is 287 meters above sea level and 6 kilometers west from Brisbane. That's the day! And you can be picked up and released from many centrally located hotels so finding your own way will not be a problem.
