Although Brisbane is behind Melbourne and Sydney in terms of population, it has its own set of cultural attractions with which to draw visitor crowds. The Queensland capital is known for being one of the east coast's most forward-thinking cities, and this is demonstrated in its cutting-edge art and music scenes. The area is surrounded by natural beauty and some of Australia's most interesting nature is found close by.
The Queensland Cultural Centre and the Brisbane Museum exhibit works by some of the city's best artists and play an informative role in tracing the history of the region. There is a host of botanic gardens to relax in, while Manly Boat Harbour has some great dining options as well as independent shops to peruse. The imposing Mt Coot-tha sits nearby and offers the most picturesque views of the city.
The late Steve Irwin's zoo is close by to Brisbane and his family's enthusiasm for wildlife rubs off on every person who visits. Keen surfers can use car hire in Brisbane to drive north along the Sunshine Coast to get their fill of the big waves on offer. There is also a koala sanctuary and the Glass House Mountains National Park nearby for lovers of nature.
Best time to visit
Brisbane does not suffer from cool weather like the south of Australia, meaning the most clothing a visitor will ever need to bring is a jumper. The summers can be dauntingly hot, but the city's proximity to the coast means visitors have a chance to cool down in the water. September is a good month to visit since the city hosts the Brisbane Festival at this time, which includes cultural events and a dazzling firework display.
Car rental in Brisbane
Brisbane has a complicated one-way system, making car rental in Brisbane best suited for daytrips to nearby national parks or beaches. Brisbane Airport offers the best selection of car hire, but it is worthwhile to compare car hire in Brisbane online in advance of travel to get the best discount.
