Brisbane offers travelers a lot of options, including beaches, theme parks and opportunities for adventure. But vacationers may want to stay inside the city in order to experience the vast amount of cultural activities that have become popular there.
According to the New Zealand Herald, staying within the city is well worth it for those on Brisbane holidays. Whether its enjoying a chic restaurant or taking in the latest exhibit at the Brisbane Gallery of Moder Art, travelers will barely have time to fit everything into their itineraries.
There also seems to be something about Brisbane culture that clicks with the lifestyle of Kiwis in particular. Tourism Queenland reports that 80,000 New Zealanders make the journey every year. Annita Crawford, a New Zealand ex-pat, says that she knows a number of Kiwis who have become taken with the city.
"We have friends come over every weekend from New Zealand. Everyone comes and they want to stay," she told the news source.
This time of year is an especially eventful time to visit, as the Brisbane Festival is running for the next three weeks. One of the more popular events is Riverfire, where travelers and residents line the city's waterway and special torches are lit to give the appearance of fire sitting on top of the water.
