Welcome to the third-largest Australian town! Nestled in the south-east Queensland, this city is entitled as the northern capital of the nation. To add to your excitement, this is the venue of many international events like Expo 88 and commonwealth games of 1982. There is no doubt that it is an energetic town with many parks and streets by the side of the river ensuring a full day busy sightseeing as well as relaxation. Well, I would say this city is just apt for the pedestrians as many Brisbane things to do are seen on foot.
Among the most exciting Brisbane things to do, the Sunshine Coast is the must to visit. Reachable in 60 minutes, this is the home of the Australia Zoo that is fun-cum-educating via its Crocodile Hunter, koalas, alligators, dingoes, kangaroos, otters, foxes, and tortoises. Some more thrilling attractions here are smooth beaches, Ginger Factory, Underwater World at Mooloolaba, National Parks, and the Big Pineapple.
Want to see a wild attraction that has won several awards? Well, I am not talking of any zoo, but this is the relaxing sheep station called the Australian Woolshed where you get a chance to milk a cow, feed lambs, and greet all the indigenous Australian animals.
Do you want to see the venue where the Expo ‘88 was held? This is the South Bank Parkland that features a man-made lagoon, cool riverside walk, shops, restaurants, and arts and crafts market. Throughout the year, this is the sight of celebrating many festivals as well as conducting fireworks. While you are here, you can also visit some great museums – Queensland Museum dedicated to the animals such as snakes, whales, crocodiles, dinosaurs, and crocodiles; the Queensland Art Gallery, the Queensland Maritime Museum, the Gallery of Modern Art, and the Queensland Performing Arts Center.
