We're sharing the best places to visit in Brisbane so you know where to go during your time in this fabulous city.
South Bank is the star precinct in Brisbane. Located along Brisbane River, it allows visitors to take in the city by day and night.
It’s a combination of recreational, educational, cultural and social aspects that create an entertainment hub which locals and visitors alike enjoy. It was once the 1988 World Expo site but now the most popular attraction is the Streets Beach, a man-made lagoon. The Wheel of Brisbane shows off Brisbane’s city skyline and there are many restaurants, walking and biking paths to enjoy.
The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary has been open since the 1920s and is the oldest and largest koala sanctuary.
Visitors today still head to the sanctuary to snap a picture with these cuddly creatures and for a chance to see them up close. Other animals you might see include a platypus, crocodiles, snakes, Tasmanian devils and more, on view here for guests to meet, take pictures and see feedings or demonstrations.

Some of the architecture in this area is award-winning and beautiful parklands create a wonderful space to relax outdoors. Many of the exhibits are interactive, making it a great spot for all ages.
Mount Coot-tha is a mountain and a western suburb in Brisbane that welcomes visitors and locals alike to enjoy a nice city break and explore nature.
From the top, Mount Coot-tha offers scenic views over Brisbane, and activities include hiking and biking trails.

It’s the longest river in southeast Queensland and provides a perfect backdrop on river cruises, as well as scenic views for guests dining along the river or rappelling down cliffs.
