Brisbane

Australia's New World City

Combine art and outdoor adventure in Brisbane, where creative spaces, music and hip new restaurants meet pretty riverside gardens and man-made beaches. Explore the sun-soaked capital over a couple of days or a few weeks with our tips on the best things to see and do. International flights arrive at Brisbane Airport from many global hubs. From the airport, it's an easy 20 minute taxi or train ride to the city centre. The inner city has a free bus service that circles the city every 10 minutes, and a free CityHopper ferry service that travels along the river from North Quay to New Farm.
