With the sun shining and the skies blue, a visit to Brisbane’s parks and National Parks is the best way to get outdoors and enjoy the weather. Grab a picnic lunch and pick a shady spot at New Farm Park, South Bank Parklands, Kangaroo Point Cliffs or the City Botanical Gardens. Or tie up your hiking shoes and hit the bushwalking trails of D’Aguilar National Park, Tamborine National Park or Main Range National Park for an energising daytrip filled with scenic lookouts, waterfalls and wildlife spotting.
Brisbane is also home to some pretty special animal encounters. Lone Pine is the world’s first and largest koala sanctuary and is one of only a handful of places where you are able to cuddle our furry friends. Over on Moreton Island at Tangalooma you can wade into the water and hand-feed a dolphin.
