Review written by Sophie Couard, on April 28, 2016.
Brisbane is the third most populous city in Australia, and certainly one of the most trendy in the country. The city welcomes thousands of tourists every year who come to enjoy its many attractions. There are many interesting buildings, such as the Story Bridge, St. John's Cathedral or the Customs House. There are also many museums (the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, the Queensland Museum, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre and the Museum of Brisbane), as well as famous parks (South Bank Parklands, Roma Street Parkland, City Botanic Gardens and the Brisbane Forest Park).Of course, the sea is also not far away, and you can find perfect beaches, such as the Moreton Bay, the Gold Coast and the Rainbow Beach for example.
There is also one more asset that plays an important role in the appeal of Brisbane. It is the Treasury. It is not only a large casino with a hotel, six restaurants and seven bars, it is also located in two of the most famous heritage buildings in Australia.
