Sunny, laid- back Brisbane. People tend to overlook this metropolis of fair weather when they think of Australian cities. And that's been one of the reasons Brisbane is such a pleasure to visit. It's been allowed to develop at it's own pace.
Must- see attractions in Brisbane would include The Irwin's Australia Zoo out near Beerwah, to get up close and personal to some of this country's most dangerous creatures. Or maybe you'd like to take it a little easier and start off at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary to cuddle sleepy bundles of fur. While you're in the area you could take a picnic up to MountCootha, one of the classic Brisbane tourist sites, and have a wander around the Botanic Gardens. As it's only 15 minutes from the CBD, the lookout at MountCootha gives you a brilliant view of the city and is the best place to watch the sun slowly rise over the city horizon.
Check out Australia Zoo to find out about show times, directions on how to get there, and to buy tickets online. Or visit Lone Pine for similar information on the world's largest koala sanctuary.
