What’s So Great About Brisbane?
Brisbane offers one of the fastest evolving cities in Australia and is the capital of Queensland. With the Great Dividing Mountain Range and Moreton Bay, along with Brisbane River nearby plenty of opportunities to enjoy holidays in this region are available. With a motorhome grabbed from Brisbane any family, couple, or holiday group can enjoy a trip up and down the coast without any fuss. Holidays often mean dining out, but with a camper van and all that one needs within it a budget holiday throughout Brisbane and the Gold Coast is truly possible. Numerous sightseeing opportunities begin in Brisbane with gardens and beaches.
Mount Coot-tha Reserve is a park and garden attraction near Brisbane, which visitors might wish to take their campervan to. It is 7km outside of the centre of Brisbane. The reserve is 220 hectares of bush reserve in which turkey and possum can be seen. There is also a planetarium at the park for fun.
