Brisbane is one of the most memorable cities in the world, with millions of visitors yearly attesting to such fact. However, you haven’t been to Brisbane if you haven’t gone to these five must see Brisbane icons:
The Gateway Bridge
This bridge spans the north and the south areas of the Brisbane River. Brisbane’s traffic relies heavily on this bridge. In fact, its usefulness prompted the construction of a twin bridge. This bridge also assists landing aircrafts by providing directional guide. Snap a photo of you with this bridge as backdrop and know you are truly in no place else but Brisbane.
The Story Bridge
If Sydney has the Harbour Bridge, Brisbane has its very own Story Bridge. This bridge connects the north and the south from across the river bend. This bridge is most beautiful when seen with beautiful fireworks during the annual Riverfire event.
If Melbourne prides of the MCG and Perth of the WACA, Brisbane has the Gabba. Originally named as the Brisbane Cricket Ground, this site will truly be an icon with visiting especially for sports enthusiasts. Watch the Brisbane Lions play or the Bulls and have a true Brisbane experience you will never forget.
South Bank is Brisbane’s centre of social life and entrainment. This is where visitors and residents come together to partake in events, dip into the man-made beach, shop, dine and drink, and simply have fun. This is the lively side of Brisbane that all visitors must experience while in the city.
The Historical Buildings
Brisbane’s architecture is quite interesting to many. The Old Windmill on Wickham Terrace, the Customs House strategically located beside the river, the City Hall which used to be the city’s tallest structure, and Cathedral of St. John with its majestic Gothic architecture, are among must-see buildings in Brisbane.
The Brisbane River
This River represents the foundation from which this city developed and continues to develop. The river is truly the best asset of the city. Take a cruise around the river while appreciating the beautiful coastline and experience Brisbane’s magic.
Brisbane has so much more to offer aside from these landmarks and icons. Visit the city today and experience a side of Australia you will never see anywhere else. While in the area, stay at the Bridgewater Terraces and enjoy Brisbane accommodation at its very best.
