Holiday homes in Brisbane

Holidays in the Pacific

Brisbane is the capital of the Australian state of Queensland and is not only an academic hotspot of the country, but also an urban tourist magnet between the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast. If you are looking for a holiday flat, an apartment or a holiday home, you will be spoilt for choice because Brisbane has a huge choice. Of course, you can stay in a holiday home close to the coast in the Manly West district or in an apartment with sea views in Brighton and the harbour of Scarborough. If you like it a little more secluded, you can look around on the offshore islands Bribie Island and Moreton Island.

Travelers and Activities

Sightseeing trip in Brisbane

You should plan several days for the extensive sightseeing in Brisbane. An absolute must is a visit to the City Botanic Gardens, where ibises, parrots and noisy miners cavort in the lush greenery. Also not to be missed is the visit to the Museum of Brisbane, which deals with the city's history and also has a breathtaking viewing platform. In addition, there are numerous free museums such as the Queensland Museum, which especially fascinates young visitors with its dinosaur skeletons. The trip is rounded off by a detour to the city planetarium at Mount Coot-tha and a visit to the Queensland Police Museum.

Brisbane emerged from a penal colony founded on the same site in 1824.
