About Brisbane

Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland. First impressions of Brisbane include reveling in ample sunshine, lush parks and friendly locals. Maiwar (or the Brisbane River) passes through the city. This modern metropolis is intertwined with the subtropical natural landscape. This is also the gateway to many of Queensland's attractions and serves as a travel hub. This area has a great number of koala bears. Because of the adorable marsupials, the city is also called "Koala Kingdom". Brisbane has enchanting natural landscape but that doesn't mean the cultural landscape is lacking. You also can experience Brisbane’s strong cultural and artistic atmosphere by checking out the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art and the Queensland Museum and Sciencentre and its interactive exhibitions.

The Brisbane City Hall was built in 1930. The towering clock tower was the largest and most expensive building in Australia until the 1971 Sydney Opera House was built. The guides within the City Hall are free guided tours and need to be booked in advance on the official website. Departure time: 10:30, 11:30, 13:30, 14:30, 15:30 Duration: 45 minutes - 1 small clock building guideline The clock tower guide is a free guided tour, but reservations are not accepted. Travellers need to go to the Brisbane City Museum on the 3rd floor of the City Hall to pick up the ticket and wait for departure. It should be noted that due to a large number of people participating in the clock tower tour, it is recommended to get the ticket as soon as possible after arriving at the town hall. Departure time: 10:00-17:00, once per hour. Duration of the tour: In 45 minutes, I also went to the most expensive building. I liked to go shopping and did not participate in the tour.

Guo’s_TravelNote   
Brisbane is the capital of Queensland, Australia, is located in the northeastern part of Australia. The Sunshine Coast on the north edge, and the international tourist attraction Gold Coast City in the south. The name of Brisbane originated from the name of the colonial governor of New South Wales in the colonial era. A river was discovered here and named the Brisbane River to commemorate the then Governor of the Union, Thomas McDoug Brisbane. The city is therefore named. However, Brisbane's original name is Moreton Bay, which is another story.
