  • Roma Street Railway Station
  • Brisbane is the largest city in Queensland; as such, there's a plethora of things to do here. For a bit of history, visit the Queensland Museum, a popular stop for tourists. Upon entering the museum, Queensland's very own dinosaur -- the 100 million-year-old Muttaburrasaurus -- greets you. What's more, an awesome humpback whale is majestically displayed overhead. The atmosphere is set for an environment of discovery, wonder and learning. The Queensland Museum resides at the Queensland Cultural Center at South Bank and presents exhibitions, including the best collection of dinosaurs in the country. Children and adults alike will find a whole day of fun here.

    Another must-do is the CityCat Cruises. An inexpensive day out in Brisbane with the kids is as easy as jumping on the CityCat ferry for a cruise up and down the river. The Cat is a high-speed catamaran that travels the length of the Brisbane River from Hamilton to St. Lucia stopping regularly to pick up and set down passengers. Travel all day with unlimited stops. Picnic facilities, historic sites, shopping and restaurants can be found at various stops or, if preferred, passengers can simply enjoy the round trip cruise that takes approximately two hours.

    Check out bustling Chinatown. Ornate arches denote the entrance to the Chinatown Mall, where shoppers will find a number of Oriental market stores and herbalists offering Asian delicacies. Restaurants and cafes in the mall provide a delicious variety of Asian-style cuisine, including Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Malaysian. Meanwhile, alfresco dining contributes to a relaxed atmosphere. Brisbane's Chinatown is one of the most authentic in Australia. With so many things to do, the energy of Brisbane will surely take you away.
