Best places to visit in Brisbane

The riverside city of Brisbane, capital of Queensland, Australia, is a delightful blend of vibrant urban precincts, sprawling parklands, and intriguing cultural attractions. Opulent with activities and scenic beauty, it offers a perfect collage of experiences for various types of wanderers. Whether you're an intrepid explorer, a couple on a romantic getaway, or a family on a holiday, Brisbane has something just for you. If you're planning to explore this charming city, Happytripz is your ideal mate for excursions in Brisbane, offering bespoke experiences to unravel the city's treasures. Here are some of the best places to visit in Brisbane:

  • South Bank Parklands: Nestled on the southern banks of the Brisbane River, South Bank Parklands are the city's pride and joy with its lush gardens, sandy beaches, and exquisite eateries. One can take a dip in Streets Beach, Australia's only inner-city, man-made beach, or take a ride on the Wheel of Brisbane to catch a bird’s eye view of the city.
  • Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary: As the world's first and largest koala sanctuary, this is a must-visit for animal lovers. Get an opportunity to cuddle a koala, hand-feed kangaroos and encounter a wide variety of Australian wildlife. A day spent among these furry friends will be both heartwarming and enlightening.
  • The Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mount Coot-tha: Not far from the city centre, find tranquility and an excellent display of native flora at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mount Coot-tha. Enjoy themed gardens, the fragrant Plant Craft Cottage, and the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium. The lookout mounts on Coot-tha offer panoramic views of Brisbane and across to Moreton Bay.
  • Cultural Centre: Located on the banks of the river, the Cultural Centre is an assembly of museums and galleries, including the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), the Queensland Museum, and the State Library of Queensland. An intellectual haven, the precinct synthesizes Queensland's vibrant cultural scene with global fine arts and exhibitions.
  • Howard Smith Wharves: Revitalized from historic wharf buildings along the riverfront, this leisure destination is celebrated for its eateries, brewery, and boutiques. It’s an idyllic spot to unwind, overlooking Story Bridge which lights up impressively come nightfall.
  • Fortitude Valley: Known affectionately as 'the Valley', this is where Brisbane's nightlife comes alive. Indie boutiques, innovative eateries, and pulsing clubs line the streets. You can immerse yourself in the live music scene at the iconic Fortitude Music Hall.

Had a blast on the Moreton Island adventure! Snorkeling around the shipwrecks was an unforgettable experience. The equipment provided was top-quality, and the instructors were super helpful, especially for beginners. The island itself is a pristine paradise that I would love to visit again.

Taking a Happytripz tour to the Glass House Mountains was indeed a day well spent. The expert commentary on the local geology and indigenous culture added depth to the visually stunning experience. The tour was paced perfectly, with enough time to take in the views and snap plenty of pictures.

Exploring the Brisbane Botanic Gardens was a tranquil escape from the city bustle. The guide was passionate about the plant life and provided lots of interesting facts. It was relaxing to wander through the diverse flora, and I particularly enjoyed the Japanese Garden section.
