When visiting Oz, the majority of people will usually visit the two most commonly known cities of Sydney and Melbourne, to get their dose of ‘city life’ Australia-style. However, in recent times, a third option is starting to become more prominent, in the city of Brisbane. Situated half way down the eastern coastline, Brisbane offers people a wide array of activities, nightlife and sightseeing that the whole family can enjoy.
One of the city’s most exciting attractions is the Southbank Parklands which is located on the southern banks of the river, right in the heart of Brisbane’s cultural and lifestyle hub. There is a wide array of world class restaurants and fine dining on offer, as well as market stalls and speciality shops to browse through, as you take in the sights of the picturesque surrounding gardens. They also have an artificial beach where you can lay back and catch some rays or go for a swim while soaking up the beautiful views of the city’s skyline.
Treasury Casino and Hotel.
Brisbane has a large selection of fine restaurants and bustling pubs to experience after a busy day exploring the city’s many attractions. A lot of people chose to head to the historical Treasury Casino, which is situated at the top of the Queen Street Mall. What better end to a day then to relax in one of the numerous bars or try your luck at the tables? If you’re not the avid punter, why not use BitCasino’s free bonus to claim some extra cash and brush up on your gaming techniques, before hitting the tables in one of Australia’s premier casinos? They also offer a large selection of slot machines and a money wheel, if you would rather leave you’re your fortune up to chance.
Brisbane Lookout, Mt Coot-tha,
Just a short drive from the city’s centre is the breathtaking Mt Coo-tha lookout. Here you can take a stroll through the award winning gardens or sit and chill at a café whilst looking out at the amazing views that stretch all the way to the ocean. There is an observation deck 287 metres above sea level, which has a remarkable vantage point of the surrounding area, and a perfect place to take some holiday snaps for the photo album.
There is also a planetarium nearby where you can enjoy a show or take a tour of Brisbane’s sky with one of the centre’s astronomers as you lay back and observe the stars.
If you’re feeling frisky, why not take a stroll on one of the many walking tracks that are on offer. The Aboriginal track will take you down to Slaughter Falls where you can see some magnificent scenery and even go for a dip in the pool at the bottom of the waterfall.
