Reasons Why Brisbane is the Best City in Australia - Interesting Facts that Make Brisbane Australia's Number 1 City

As one of the most dynamic and vibrant hotspots Down Under, Brisbane has a lot to offer visitors. Here are seven reasons why the city is the finest metropolis in all of Australia.


Sunshine State

One of the main reasons why Brisbane is one of Australia's most popular tourist hotspots are its excellent weather conditions. Enjoying a whopping two hundred and eighty sunny days every year, nearly every outdoor activity is accessible and adventure hubs open for business all year round. This means unlike other Australian cities such as Melbourne and Sydney, visitors can expect sunny skies and clear days regardless of the timing of the holiday. Outdoor havens the likes of Kangaroo Point, City Botanical Gardens and Captain Cook Bridge, therefore, can be part of every vacationer's itinerary irrespective of the time of year.


It's Koala Central

Home to the largest Koala sanctuary on the planet, there's no better venue to get acquainted with the furry marsupials than Brisbane. The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary serves as a sprawling wildlife park dedicated to these uniquely Australian creatures and also includes enclosures where kangaroos hop about in large numbers. The venue serves as the habitat of 100 types of wildlife and the sheer variety of its inhabitants has earned it a place in the Guinness World Book of Records.


Markets Galore

When it comes to farmer's markets and bustling cultural thoroughfares, there's no better place to enjoy a truly different retail experience than Brisbane. The bohemian feel and atmosphere of Brisbane's top markets are inescapable and the plethora of diversely themed markets offer tourists wholesome and well-made products in terms of food, fashion items, accessories and handicrafts. Food lovers should definitely explore the Bakery Lane, West and Boundary Street markets while thoroughfares focusing on African, Asian and Partisan themes are also found in the city. Those based at Oaks Lexicon Apartments or any other similar Brisbane CBD hotels will have easy access to these markets.


Convenient Travel Hub

Brisbane is also one of the most convenient cities to explore using public transport as the green cab services as well as buses and trains are widely available and affordable. Just purchase a Go-Card which is available through TransLink and discover the main attractions across the city. The Central Business District is also ideal for walking excursion with spacious walkways and open paths while biking enthusiasts can also use pedestrian paths to cycle around Brisbane with ease.


Sports Hotspot

Sports lovers also call Brisbane a thriving sports Mecca due to the large number of football matches and other sporting events which take place at the towering Suncorp Stadium. As the home base of the National Rugby Team as well as A-League, the soccer and rugby games alone during the period from June to July are worth the visit.


The Home of The Australian Zoo

The Australian Zoo is a veritable national icon in term of the country's wildlife highlights and its home is the sunny state of Brisbane. In addition to catching a glimpse of wildlife species endemic to Australia, walking around the sprawling enclosure is a true pleasure for all travellers.
