The Area: Brisbane
The combination of balmy subtropical climate and cosmopolitan vibe makes Brisbane one of the most livable cities in the world. With golden beaches, boutique shopping, world-class galleries and a vibrant cafe culture on their doorstep, visitors to Australia’s third largest city have no shortage of things to see and do. Stroll among the green lawns, Moreton Bay figs, pines and bamboos of the Botanic Gardens, Brisbane’s oldest park, where kids will love looking for possums on the riverside Mangrove Boardwalk at night. For a culture hit, check out the Queensland Art Gallery, one of the most acclaimed galleries in the country that regularly hosts international exhibitions. For even more glitz and glamour, take in a show at Queensland Performing Arts Centre or Brisbane Convention Centre or have a flutter at Treasury Casino. For activities that get the blood pumping, head to Riverlife Adventure Centre to make the most of Brisbane’s river location by paddling around on a kayak or rock climbing up majestic cliffs overlooking the water. Shopaholics, too, are in paradise with the 700 stores of Queen Street Mall, or for edgier designs head to Elizabeth Street and discover some of Brisbane’s most promising up-and-coming designers.
