Overview Of The Port Of Brisbane

About Brisbane
Brisbane is the capital city of the state of Queensland, Australia.

At Brisbane City Hall (King George Square) you can take the elevator up 300 feet into the clock tower where you have views of tall buildings, the river and several parks. On the ground floor, there is the Museum of Brisbane.

Newstead House, the city's oldest surviving house, dating back to 1846, is set in a park overlooking the Brisbane River.

RiverWalk extends for 13 miles along the Brisbane River's north bank. The best walking sections skirt the restaurants and cafes in the city centre, passing into the botanical gardens and onto wooden walkways through a mangrove swamp. A shorter walk extends a few miles along the South Bank, opposite the city centre.

The South Bank area includes riverside walks, shops, parklands, a sandy beach and pool, weekend markets and the Queensland Cultural Centre. The Queensland Gallery of Modern Art is next door.

Queen Street, a pedestrian mall stretching several blocks, and the Myer Centre are the main shopping areas.

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, located along the Brisbane River at Fig Tree Pocket, can be reached by taxi, bus or boat. Lone Pine also houses kangaroos, emus, wombats, bats, baby crocodiles, black-headed pythons and turtles.

Brisbane Botanic Gardens, 4 miles from the city, is a 128 acre garden is set below Mount Coot-tha, with many rainforest plants that are seen nowhere else. It also features the Tropical Dome, a cactus house, an elaborate Japanese garden, a lake and walking trails.

Around 90 minutes drive away are the beaches of the Gold Coast.

Seafood is abundant and fresh, favourites include wild barramundi (reef fish), clams, mussels, mud crabs and Moreton Bay bugs (crustaceans with a strong flavour). Farm raised Kangaroo and steak is also eaten.
Cruise Terminal
The majority of cruise ships currently dock at the Portside Wharf cruise terminal, located on the north side of the Brisbane River. Portside Wharf includes an attractive local shopping centre, several bars and restaurants, and a cruise ship viewing deck. Cruise lines are likely to offer shuttle bus transportation to the city centre. Alternatively, there is also the option of using the CityCat, a Brisbane city-operated fast ferry from Bretts Wharf, a 10 minute walk from the ship.

Some larger ships may dock at the Grain Berth and passengers disembark at the Multi-user Terminal located at Fisherman Islands. There is no public transportation from the Freight Terminal so taxis, cruise line shuttles or excursion transportation can be used.
