Things to do near Brisbane, Australia

These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Brisbane, along with a brief description:

♦ Brisbane City Hall

Located in King George Square, Brisbane City Hall is a great way to get acquainted with the capital city! You can ride an elevator all the way to the top (over 300 feet) to witness stunning views from the top of the clock tower. There is also a museum located in this building, where you can learn about how the city has developed over the years through photographs, videos, and paintings. Around the city, you will find plenty of “Greeters” who are willing to share their passionate knowledge about the city and all its landmarks. If you have some time to spare before or after your cruise from Brisbane, visiting city hall is a highly-recommended (and free) way to make your vacation even more special.

♦ The Queensland Museum

This museum has a little something for everybody and is another fun free activity to do when you cruise from Brisbane. You can discover exhibits about World Wars I & II, as well as natural history, maritime life, and dinosaurs. You will also be able to check out a large hanging aircraft and a replica of an Orient Line ship. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon learning about the history of Brisbane and its surrounding area.

♦ Brisbane Botanic Gardens

Located right beneath Mount Coot-tha, these botanical gardens are so beautiful you might never want to leave. This garden in particular is best-known for its many species of rainforest flora. Some of the things you can enjoy here include a cactus house, a tropical house, Japanese gardens, and some really relaxing walking trails with a lake. You can opt to explore the grounds on your own or join in on a free guided tour. Best of all, admission to the garden is free too, making this a great option for before or after your cruise.
