Brisbane Botanic Gardens

Since the Gardens' opening in 1976, more than 52 hectares (130 acres) has been developed to represent plant varieties from around the world. Attractions include the Fragrant Plant and Herb Garden; the Exotic Rainforest; Japanese Garden; Tropical Dome Display; Arid Region Plants & Cactus House and the Lagoon & Bamboo Grove. A 30-minute self-guided tour of the Aboriginal Plant Display shows plants used by Aborigines for medicine, shelter and food.

Story Bridge

An iconic Brisbane landmark, Story Bridge stretches 777 meters (2,549 feet) and reaches 74 meters (243 feet) at its highest point. More than 300 men were employed for its design and construction, which required nearly 12,000 tons of steel. The bridge took five years to complete, and it was opened to traffic in 1940. Initially named Jubilee Bridge after the Silver Jubilee of King George V, the imposing structure was later renamed Story Bridge in honor of Public Service Commissioner John Story. While it is possible for adventure seekers to go on a guided climb up the bridge, ferry rides and guided tours give all visitors the chance to enjoy unparalleled panoramas of Brisbane.

Commissariat Store

The Commissariat Store is one of the two oldest buildings in Brisbane, the other one being the Old Windmill. Steeped in history, the building was built by convicts in the 1820s. As new facets of the building come to light (like the recently excavated brick-made drains in the basement), the building becomes more and more intriguing for the common man. Used as an immigrant house in the past, the Store now functions as the headquarters of the Royal Historical Society of Queensland. A museum and the well-stocked library are also located in the building. The Commissariat Store is being used to host cultural events like book launches and music concerts too.

Brisbane City Hall

Opened in 1930, the three-story Brisbane City Hall is the site of a number of the city's attractions. Events are held in the circular concert hall throughout the year, and guests enjoy great acoustics from the impressive gallery seating. Visitors to Brisbane City Hall can sit near the on-guard lions at the front entrance and count the Corinthian columns across the facade or relax in the City Hall and King George Squares. Of course, a trip to Brisbane City Hall isn't complete without a visit to the Museum of Brisbane, which adds touches of art and history to the must-see landmark.

Mt Coot-tha Lookout

Mt Coot-tha Lookout is an excellent vantage point for viewing Brisbane city and surrounds, including Moreton Bay and the Glass House Mountains. The Kuta Café and the Summit Restaurant at the lookout are very popular with visitors and locals alike, who appreciate dining with an unrivaled view. The lookout is part of Mt Coot-tha Forest, which is a component of the massive Brisbane Forest Park which covers nearly 29,000 hectares. Only ten minutes from the city, this is a panorama worth the drive and parking is free.

Fort Lytton National Park

Established in the 1800s as a workable fort to defend Brisbane, Fort Lytton is a piece of Queensland's history. The fort, the National Park and nearby picnic grounds are always open and free to the public. A museum at the site is open to the public on Sundays but on other days can only be seen on a guided tour, which must be pre-booked to ensure the availability of the volunteer guides.
