If you are used to driving in a large city, Brisbane should present no driving challenges. A Sat Nav will help you easily navigate the one-way systems of the Central Business District and the winding streets of the city's outer suburbs. Like any major city, traffic builds up during the morning and evening rush hours. Many major roads that leave the city charge a toll. These have to be paid with either a prepaid transponder or via a website. Our office staff will be happy to advise you on this.
Brisbane has plenty of both street and off-street parking zones. In some of the central areas hourly and daily rates can be very expensive and many streets become clearways after 4 p.m. Check your parking time carefully to avoid having your rental vehicle towed away.
Like many of Australia's modern cities, the town sprawls across a large area making your car hire in Brisbane the perfect way to explore. You will find an edgy vibrancy in the South Bank area with its riverside boardwalks, restaurants from around the world and inner-city beaches. Take some time to visit the Queensland Museum and art galleries located here. Enjoy lunch and an afternoon wander at Portside Wharf where the cruise ships dock before doing a spot of souvenir shopping in the New Farm district. Fortitude Valley is a lively nightspot full of eclectic bars and superclubs. To escape the city for a while and enjoy close encounters with some Australian wildlife the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is just fifteen minutes drive from the city centre. Here you can cuddle a koala and hand feed a baby kangaroo.
The Brisbane River that curves and curls its way through the city's districts is the reason Brisbane exists and the heart of the town. The Jagera and Turrbal clans lived alongside the river here for at least 40,000 years before Surveyor General John Oxley named the river and town after the governor of New South Wales, Thomas Brisbane in 1823. The South Bank of the river was the site for Expo88 which placed the city firmly on the world map. Make the most of the river during your stay with some moonlight kayaking, a breathtaking climb of the Story Bridge, a day's sunbathing on one of its beaches or by simply enjoying a riverside walk through a lush city park.
The whole family will enjoy a day out at Queensland Zoo where native Australian species live happily alongside exotic specimens from around the world.
To get the most out of the views from Mount Coot-tha, Brisbane's tallest mountain, take one of its trails and plan to reach the peak in time to enjoy the sunset and a picnic dinner.
For a taste of old Queensland spend a day in Samford Valley. Explore historic hamlets and museums before lunching in a country tavern and enjoying a bush walk.
Originally developed as a penal settlement, Brisbane is now the capital of Queensland and the third most populous city in Australia. The economy of Brisbane mixes heavy industry such as railway workshops, petroleum refining and paper milling with scientific research, information technology and financial services. Tourism is also a fast growing sector helped by the cruise ship port. The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre is a large modern complex that hosts a busy annual programme covering everything from boat shows to university graduations and sporting events.
