GLASS PALACES IN THE SUN
Brisbane awoke in the eighties like Cinderella from her sleep and the city’s popularity has been growing ever since. The 1988 world exhibition in Brisbane provided the decisive impetus. An amusement park has now been built on the former exhibition grounds and visitors will definitely not be bored. The subtropical climate of Queensland’s capital contributes to a special feeling of well-being among our visitors. Brisbane ranks among Australia’s sunniest cities with an average of 7.5 hours of sun daily and average temperatures of 20°C even in winter.
The climate also leaves its mark on the life of the city. The atmosphere in the city centre is accordingly relaxed and friendly and attracts a wide variety of street artists and musicians. Myer Centre with its shops, restaurants and amusements is worth a visit in any event, as there is nothing comparable in Australia. The city’s parks also provide an ideal backdrop for recreation. Foremost among them is Albert Park, which offers a fabulous view over the city from its hills.
THE NEARBY TEMPTATIONS OF THE GOLD COAST
Although Brisbane is not directly on the coast, the magnificent beaches of the Gold Coast are only a short hour’s ride away by car. The Gold Coast is Queensland’s answer to Hawaii and Florida. Australia’s Mecca for beach life and surfing offers more than 40 km of well kept sandy beaches, along with a very active, extensive nightlife.
