精准平码一一肖: Brisbane Urban culture, outdoor adventure

Climb Brisbane’s Story Bridge... and abseil down it

Climb Brisbane’s Story Bridge for panoramic views across the city, north to the Glasshouse Mountains and south to the World Heritage-listed Gold Coast hinterland. In a two-hour journey you will ascend 80 metres (262 feet) above sea level as you learn about the bridge's history and construction. Keep the adrenaline going with an optional 30-metre (98-foot) abseil back down the anchor pier, facing the glistening river and cityscape.

Soak up the arts

Explore the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), housed in two riverside buildings at South Bank. QAGOMA's collection consists of more than 17,000 works of historical, modern and contemporary art, and the gallery presents a diverse program of Australian and international exhibitions. The Institute of Modern Art (IMA) in Fortitude Valley is also worth a visit; it concentrates on commissioning new works by Australian and international artists. Brisbane also boasts an exciting live music scene. Check out the line-up at The Triffid, which hosts some of music's hottest acts. For a rollicking good time, head to Lefty's Old Time Music Hall, an all-American saloon with live country music and southern bar snacks.

Drink and dine

Brisbane is home to a number of restaurants and cafés at which chefs emphasise local Queensland produce. In the city centre, multi-award-winning Allium serves sophisticated and exciting food through its ever-evolving menu. Urbane is another popular choice for its "omnivore" and "herbivore" set menus with matching wines. At breakfast, Gauge offers fresh, healthy food with many ingredients made in-house, while Gerard's Bistro draws inspiration from global flavours. Enjoy cocktails at rooftop bars Up on Constance and Eleven in Fortitude Valley, or choose from more than 400 whiskies at Cobbler in West End.

Shop the markets and designer boutiques

Fortitude Valley is brimming with independent stores and is regarded as Brisbane's best shopping precinct. Along James Street you’ll find more than 130 specialty stores, including high-end Australian designers Lee Mathews, Scanlan & Theodore and Zimmermann. Winn and Bakery lanes (off Ann Street) offer a handful of quirky boutiques such as The Outpost, Babushka Ballerina and Stock and Supply. Back in the city centre, The Collective Markets are held each Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday at Stanley Street Plaza and feature more than 100 local creatives selling handmade jewellery, art, antiques, photographs and vintage fashion.

Visit Brisbane's islands 

Brisbane's coastline is dotted with idyllic islands. Moreton Island, just a 70-minute ferry ride from Brisbane, is the third largest sand island in the world, yet fewer than 100 residents call the island home. Most of the island is national park, creating a blissful paradise of sandy beaches, bush and lagoons. Moreton Island is also home to the famous Tangalooma Wrecks, popular for diving and snorkelling. North Stradbroke Island (affectionately known as “Straddie” to the locals) is another fantastic holiday destination and is just a 40-minute ferry ride from the bayside town of Cleveland. There are three villages on the island – Dunwich, Amity and Point Lookout – fringed by magnificent surf beaches, calm blue bays and tranquil lakes. Explore the island by bicycle, stopping at Point Lookout to spot migrating whales between June and October.

Meet over 100 koalas

Just 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) from Brisbane City lies an animal refuge with unmissable wildlife encounters. Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is the world's first and biggest koala sanctuary. Here, you can hold a koala, feed a kangaroo and meet a wide variety of native Australian animals. Head to one of the daily keeper talks, where you can hold a snake or bird of prey, or book a close-up encounter with a dingo and platypus. You'll be encouraged not only to see wildlife, but also connect and learn about over 100 incredible Australian species.

Swim at Streets Beach

In Brisbane, you don't even have to leave the city to enjoy the sand and sea. Streets Beach, located in Brisbane's lifestyle suburb of South Bank, is Australia's only inner-city, man-made beach. Enjoy the view overlooking the skyline before taking a dip in the sparkling lagoon, which is surrounded by white sand and tropical greenery. Nearby, you'll find an intricately-designed Nepalese Pagoda - one of only three Nepalese peace pagodas found outside of Nepal.
