Bright, beautiful Brisbane

Australia is blessed with lots of beautiful blue sky days and it shows off any location to it’s best advantage. Central Brisbane, which is centered around the wriggly Brisbane River is no exception. The river feels like the heart of the city, with lots of people making the most of it at all times. The waterfront bars and restaurants are buzzing with diners enjoying the location, day or night. Runners, walkers, cyclists, dogs, prams, wheelchairs, gophers and scooters all use the walkways which hug the river’s edge on both sides. Ferries zip up and down and side to side all day.

Brisbane is a cycle friendly city with demarcated, separated cycle paths plentiful, the traffic isn’t too crazy and the hills are not as severe as Sydney.

Brisbane is quite a contrast to Sydney. In comparison, Brisbane has a small country town feel. Despite that, there are a multitude of great restaurants, vibrant markets and upmarket gin bars to enjoy.
