Brisbane is the capital, and most populated state in Queensland, Australia. It is home to galleries, museums, theatres, sport and many annual events such as the Brisbane International Film Festival and the Caxton Street Seafood and Wine Festival which promotes Australian music, food and wine from Caxton Street cafes and restaurants.
There's really something for everyone in Brisbane. Head to the city and go on a shopping spree, with over 1,000 stores and a mix of local and international designers you are spoilt for choice. Rent a car in Brisbane and take a walk on the wild side with a trip to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary which is the oldest and largest koala sanctuary in the world. It is home to 120 koalas which you can hold, or why not feed a kangaroo. You can even get up close and personal to other wildlife that is native to Australia.
For a cultural day out then drive the short distance to Queensland Art Gallery in the South of Brisbane. It is here that you will find a collection of Australian and International paintings as well as sculptures. One of the most significant pieces of work on display here is "La Belle Hollandaise" which is by Pablo Picasso. Why not spend a sunny day taking a stroll through the City Botanic Gardens which run next to the Brisbane River. Let the children burn off some energy before you all stop for a picnic in this picturesque setting.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
