Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland and the 3rd largest city in Australia. In the past Brisbane’s bigger city cousins felt the city could not struggle with them for culture, dining and nightlife but all that has changed.
It’s also got one of the best climate of any capital city in Australia.
The sub-tropical climate means it is warm throughout the year with mild, dry winters. The city enjoys over three hundred days of sunlight a year and as a result the town makes good use of the outdoors and the stream that wraps round the town.
Getting Around: Once you are in Brisbane it’s best if you hire a campervan to go to everything. Otherwise another choice is that it’s simple to get around the central areas by foot or public transport. The public transport is operated under the name of TransLink and permits the usage of a single ticket for bus, rail and ferry. Ensure you explore the stream using the fast and smooth Town Pussy catamaran ferries.
If you’re staying in the CBD itself or near the stream precinct of Southbank then you’ll be able to explore lots of the centre simply by foot. The CBD area of the city is fairly compact. Nonetheless if you want to get further away from the centre then Brisbane sprawls out a good distance and you might find car rental a nice option.
There are plenty of Brisbane auto rental companies to choose from including all the big names and a number of local reduced cost operators. A note of warning. If you choose a cheap car rental firm then read the details in detail. A couple of the firms charge admin and other charges in the event you cause damages to the auto and hide this in reams of details on the contract.
