Holiday Attractions Brisbane

By Anton Maverick

In the middle of Brisbane town is the City Hall Art Studio and Museum with in depth displays of paintings, ceramics and pictures. It is part of a central financial district complicated based around King George Square which includes the clock tower, a neo Italian renaissance ediface which rises 91 metres above the City Plaza and offers wide ranging perspectives of the city.Campervan Hire Australia is a good way to see the country by road.

In recent years the Queen Street Mall has become the shopping mall of the town. Boasting more than 1200 specialist shops the Queen Street Mall has about 100 cafes and trattorias, 20 theatres and five shopping malls, it is where consumers and holiday-makers in the city inevitably head if they would like to feel the pulse of the city.

Like malls around the globe, Queen Street is happy with its wide range of free entertainment. For some individuals intend to spend at least some of their cash on the betting tables, the Treasury Casino in George Street is a magnet. Found in the city's old Treasury Building, it is open 24 hours a day, has more than 1100 poker and gaming machines, five cafes, 7 bars and over 100 tables where roulette, craps and 21 are played.

Plan to spend at least half a day at Mount Coot-tha Botanic Gardens and Reserve, which cover an area of 57 hectares. Of particular interest are the Japanese Gardens, the Tropical Dome indoor display and the Colorful Rainforest. Relax at the diner in the gardens which overlooks one of many lakes or enjoy a picnic under the trees.

Brisbane is a classic sub-tropical city: a delightful, easy going, modern centre situated on the Brisbane Brook and noted for its extensive and lovely tropical gardens. In his book Portriat of Brisbane Bill Scott described the city as 'a lazy town with its sleeves rolled up, casually sprawling across its thrty-seven hills. The hills are patterned with paling fences, mango trees, high-stepping weather board houses, and a tangle of over head wires like the web of a demented spider. God Bless you Brisbane.
