Tell me about Brisbane, Australia!!

I am going to visit Brisbane next month!

It is my first time to visit there.

I would like to go enjoy Lone Pine Koala sanctuary, Mt. Cook-tha lookout, Queensland museum, walking in the south bank area.

l heard that Brisbane festival will be held next month. I have no idea how crowded there.

Is it possible to visit these places for 3 days?

I think many tourists must be in the city and I am worried that I have to be waiting for long to get on a bus or a train, to enter these places.

Are buses and  trains crowded so much?

Do you have any idea to walk around efficiently in Brisbane from 20 Sep to 23 Sep?

Hi Momo, they are all very close to each other, and you can see all four in one day. The buses are very good, and from Roma Street bus station you can get to Lone Pine in 30 minutes, or Mt Coo-tha in 20 minutes.

SouthBank, and the museum and art gallery are in the same place so no bus will be needed. You can walk here from the bus station or the centre of the city in 10 minutes.

Hi Momo,

Well, welcome to Australia next month! Actually I am located in Sydney and never been to Brisbane before. But I've heard about Brisbane, the city is not really crowded like Sydney, but if there will be a festival held in there, maybe it will be crowded. Heeheheh.

I am sure the public facility in Brisbane will be similar just like in Sydney. My experience by bus or train is very easy and fast in Sydney, I hope in Brisbane also.

My advice if you want to go to those places in 3 days, you can study the routes from the internet first. The bus or the train route you can find it there. And of course you can estimate the cost as well. If you have note the routes, you can save time and enjoy the places.

from 20 to 23 sep is weekday, I think the bus or train won't be crowded. Just avoid the time people go to work and back from work, around 8-9am and 4-6 pm. Because train and bus usually get full.

Hope can practice English with you!

See you later.
