If you’re in the mood to explore the beauty of Queensland, its capital Brisbane is a good place to start. No matter what kind of trip you’re embarking on, this Australian city has something in store that will impress you, and here are some attractions you shouldn’t miss if you’re visiting with your family.
Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
The world’s oldest and largest koala sanctuary opened its doors in Brisbane all the way back in 1927. Most people visiting Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary are here to see koalas in the flash, but this sanctuary is home to many more Australian native animal species, including kangaroos, Tasmanian devils, and wombats.
Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium
Brisbane is home to several kid-friendly museums, but Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium is the most popular amongst the little ones. Its educational shows, exhibits, and an observatory will impress visitors of all ages.
Brisbane’s Sea World isn’t a part of the American marine theme parks chain of the same name, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive. In addition to featuring rides, animal exhibits, and other attractions, this oceanographic theme park is committed to promoting the conservation and rehabilitation of sick animals.
