Queensland Cultural Centre: For something more culture, explore the Queensland Cultural Centre across from the South Bank. It includes the city museum, theatre, art gallery and modern art gallery.
Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary: While many argue that there's more to visiting Australia than just kangaroos and koala bears, why not fit these furry creatures into your trip while you're there? Brisbane's koala sanctuary was the world's first and was founded in 1927 with just two bears. Today, there's more than 130.
Mount Coot-tha: Mount Coot-tha, while popular among couples for romantic rendez-vous, offers great views of the city. Don't miss the Mount Coot-tha Reserve while you're at it with your Brisbane car hire. On a clear day you can see Moreton Bay on one side and the majestic Glass House Mountains on the other.
