Brisbane travel tips | Greyhound Australia

Brisbane, the river city

Situated just off Moreton Bay, Brisbane is a vibrant city with a relaxed atmosphere. Situated on the Brisbane River, the capital city of Queensland boasts beautiful gardens, boutique shopping and eclectic dining.

Laze in the sun around the sandy lagoons of South Bank Parklands, or stroll through the majestic City Botanic Garden and nearby Roma St Parkland.

Brisbane is also the perfect base to discover the Sunshine and Gold Coasts. Centrally located, it only takes just over an hour to reach both locations. Moreton Island is also just a hop, skip and a jump away, so make sure to book a day trip tour!
