This beautiful city is situated between Moreton Bay on the flood plain for the Brisbane River and the mountains of the great dividing range. This is a thriving young city with a lively beat in the music world and also has a great number of famous restaurants to keep any foodie happy. A day at the beach can be followed by a hike up the highest mountain Mt Coot-tha for a spectacular view of the city. From this point you can see all of the small districts which makeup this wonderful city.
One of this city’s major attraction is Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. This clean, well attended and well
managed Koala sanctuary not only houses and cares for hundreds of baby koalas, but all of the indigenous animals of Australia.
You can pet a dingo, see a platypus, feed a kangaroo or wallaby, cuddle a koala and have your picture taken all this area. Have you wondered what a kookaburra looks like, or see cockatoos in the wild? Well here is the place to experience that. Have you seen the giant fruit bats which are known to be hanging from the trees in Australia? They are a sight to see.
Do you have a thing for snakes and crawly thing? They have places for them there too. All within this well priced
very special place in Brisbane Australia. This is a true must see for the Brisbane visitor.
When you have cuddled your koala, (mine’s name was Astor and he was 7 months old) it would be time to take a drive up the mountain and see what Coot-tha can offer for hiking and picnicking opportunities. The scenic outlook and walking paths are well attended and marked. They also have a snack bar and small restaurant for your convenience.
A day in Brisbane is not enough, but it is a way to see an exciting part of Australia with its mild climate and
friendly people, you are sure to want to go back
