Three places you must visit in Brisbane!

1 City Hall, the symbol of the city

Built in 1930, City Hall stands a whopping 92 meters tall and is a symbol of Brisbane.

It is said to have been the most expensive building in Australia in the past.

There is an observatory inside the clock tower where you can see the view of the city.

You can also take a free guided tour of the interior of the building.

The building is lit up at night, so you can see a different view than during the day.

  • Opening hours: Weekdays 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Weekends 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

2 South Bank – Nature in the City

There is also an archaeological site called the Nepalese Pagoda in the very large grounds, which will make you feel like you are in Asia.

The park also houses kangaroos, wombats, and other rare animals that can only be seen in Australia.

The site is very large, so it is best to allow plenty of time.

What is Brisbane?


Brisbane is located in the southeast of Queensland and is the third largest city in Australia.

It is characterized by high average temperatures and long sunny periods throughout the year.

The city has experienced three major floods due to the large number of creeks in the city area.

On the other hand, people from various countries live in the city, and the people are friendly and safe.

In addition, access to the beach is also close, so it is popular as a study abroad destination for people who like the ocean.
