Brisbane is inarguably one of the most underrated cities in the Land Down Under. Its beauty is unmatched, and the local hospitality is warm like any other. The economy has been booming in recent years; hence the city no longer goes by the name of “big country town”. Brisbane is the perfect marriage of old and new. The glamorous cosmopolitan city is teeming with nature and cultural attractions, not to mention the long list of dining and lifestyle choices strategically located all over town.
With more than 2.4 million people and thousands upon thousands of businesses, Brisbane is one of the best places to settle down in Australia. It remains one of the top tourist spots, thanks to its plentiful natural resources, landmarks, parks, and cultural spots. As international travel isn’t an option for many Australians this summer, why not book a flight or enjoy a long drive to Brisbane? If you’re asking why, here are a few Brisbane attractions that you shouldn’t miss!
- Brisbane City Markets
A vacation trip isn’t complete without shopping. If you want to take home some fresh veggies, fruits, and non-edible souvenirs, visiting Brisbane City Markets is a must. Instead of reserving a table at a restaurant, why not sample the local specials as you shop along with the City Markets that pop up at Reddacliff Place every Wednesday and Cathedral Square every Thursday? Walking along a lengthy strip of food and shopping stalls can get wild, especially when there are a lot of fellow tourists and locals.
To make sure that you won’t accidentally leave your phone somewhere, place your phone in cute and wearable phone corded phone cases, so you can carry your device around you like a smartphone mini-bag. Our Phone case with cord combo options are excellent when you’re looking to spend time with a lot of people around. It’s the perfect smartphone accessory if you’re the type who doesn’t like carrying bags around.
- Beer Tasting at a Local Craft Brewery
What is a vacation without enjoying alcoholic refreshments? The dynamic food scene in Brisbane has inspired the rise of local craft breweries that you can find all over the city. Do not forget to reserve a slot in some of the most famous breweries in the city, including Range Brewing, Aether, Bacchus Brewing, and Milton Common, to name a few. When you’re a beer connoisseur, your focus is on the IPAs and signature brews on the table. A phone in your hand is a nuisance. Your phone may be waterproof but the last thing you want to do during a brewery tasting and tour is to worry about your phone getting wet from all the booze lying all around.
Using modular phone accessories and crossbody phone cords are a great way for you to bring your valuable mobile phone everywhere you go without constantly searching for them in your bag. You can wear a phone carrier across or on the side of your body. It’s an accessory that is both stylish and useful during local brewery tastings in Brisbane.
- Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
Koalas are undeniably the most huggable creatures to ever roam the planet. If you want a hands-on experience with these cuddly creatures, head out to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Besides koalas, the sanctuary is also home to more than 70 animal species such as kangaroos, kookaburras, wallabies, wombats, and many more. It’s a great place to interact with Australia’s local wildlife. There are also interactive demonstrations where you can learn more interesting things about the country’s wildlife.
Bringing your phone to an animal sanctuary is a must but it can be a bit risky since you may accidentally drop it while exploring the place. To prevent this problem, we highly recommend using an iPhone strap, chain or cord to keep it as close to you as possible. This will allow you to participate in demonstrations and take stunning photos up close.
- Museum Tours
Brisbane is a haven for art lovers. The city has an impressive collection of museums and exhibits that you can choose from. You can take your children to the Queensland Museum and Science Centre. The city also prides itself on its magnificent collection of books kept at the State Library of Queensland. Finally, there’s Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) where you can spend an entire afternoon appreciating modern, innovative art from some of the finest artists in Australia and other parts of the world.
In most museums, professional cameras are prohibited. You must understand that museums showcase expensive pieces. Exposure to too much light can result in accelerated deterioration of artwork. You can, however, use your mobile phones to take snapshots of beautiful artworks or your obligatory “I am a sophisticated art aficionado” photos for your social media.
A beaded phone charm or braided phone cord is perfect for your trip to the museum. A pearl phone cord or wristlet complements the timeless sophistication of museums.
