Blessed with parks and pristine natural places, Brisbane always feels like a green city. Right in the heart of The City is Roma Street Parkland and the City Botanic Gardens. Then there’s the extensive South Bank Parklands – with its famous beach, free barbecues, riverside dining and cultural precinct. Just 10 minutes out of Brisbane City you’ll discover the bush trails of Mt Coot-tha. It’s easy to spend a day on nearby Moreton Bay, home to some of the world’s largest sand islands, or to escape to the heritage-listed forests of the Scenic Rim.
