❝One of the nicest hostels I have stayed in on my trip down the east coast. Hostel is huge. It has a big kitchen area and a nice rooftop pool. Close to a large coles and train station. Room was simple but clean. Not far from city centre at all.❞
❝It was well located, near a coles and a short walk from the river. The rooftop and pool had amazing views of the city. I had to get some laundry done and it was great to have the outdoor hanging space. The daily events weren’t running during my stay but I still got to meet new people at the bar.❞
Brisbane, capital of Queensland, is a large city on the Brisbane River. Clustered in its South Bank cultural precinct are the Queensland Museum and Sciencentre, with noted interactive exhibitions. Another South Bank cultural institution is Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, among Australia's major contemporary art museums. Looming over the city is Mt. Coot-tha, site of Brisbane Botanic Gardens. Ferries cruise the winding river. At one bend, modern skyscrapers crowd around the restored 1920s City Hall. Nearby, the Roma Street Parkland is a subtropical garden that’s home to native and endangered plants. For shopping, the Queen Street Mall is also in the central business district, and James Street in Fortitude Valley has restaurants and cafes. Further upriver, the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary offers visitors the chance to hold koalas and hand-feed kangaroos. Out in Moreton Bay, North Stradbroke Island is home to an Aboriginal settlement, a former convict station and shipwrecks.
