Brisbane is a beautiful riverside city in southern Queensland.

Much like the Thames in London, the Brisbane river is mainly brown and muddy looking, but is a focal point and an excellent way of making your way around the city. The River Cat is the best way to get from one end of the city to the other – it’s a fast service and gives you great views of the city from the Storey Bridge to the University of Queensland.

Brisbane has some of the best seafood restaurants in Australia (therefore the World) – try some Moreton Bay Bugs (bay lobsters) or Yabbies and you’ll see what we mean.

Brisbane has an outstanding airport and provides a base to explore further north up to Hervey Bay, Fraser Island, the Great Barrier Reef and Cairns.
