City Botanic Gardens

The City Botanic Gardens or Brisbane Botanic Gardens as it was once referred to as is one of Brisbane's heritage-listed sites. Within these gardens are a colorful collection of exotic and native plants to delight the eye and beautiful lily ponds and lush green lawns to calm the soul. The site was chosen for a public garden in 1828, with fertile soil producing healthy crops for the prison settlement nearby. In 1855, botanist Walter Hill declared that the botanical gardens would occupy the area. Some of Hill's plants from the 1850s remain on Residence Hill and the weeping figs on Walter Hill Walk were planted by the botanist in the 1870s.

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.
