Brisbane Cruise Port

Posted on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 |
Cruises from the sunny Brisbane leave from the International Cruise Terminal, which is 10km from the city centre. If you don't have your own transport, there are regular buses running from central Brisbane. The terminal is home to Portside, with apartments, restaurants, bars, retail and other facilities- so you don't need to stray far from the ship if you don't want to!

 As a port stop or an embarkation/disembarkation port,  there is a lot to see and do once in the city proper. The South Bank is a cultural mecca and has 17 acres of parkland and museums, galleries and walking tracks. The city's retail hub is Queen Street, and there are beautiful Botanic Gardens and the State Art Gallery with a huge collection of amazing Aboriginal works. The river snakes through the city and out into Moreton Bay, and is put to use as a main travel artery, so take a ferry to see the sights from a different angle.

If you are willing to venture out of the city, the delights of the Gold Coast and Surfer's Paradise are only an hour away and are Australia's riviera- where the surf and sand meet the high-rise city. The hinterland behind this coast is just as amazing, if a little less bustling. Lush rainforest and many vineyards offer amazing scenery.
