• A world of culture in Brisbane

    2010-09-17

    Those on Australia and New Zealand travel typically head to the countries in order to experience adventure or perhaps enjoy the countries' beautiful beaches. Yet travelers shouldn't overlook the wealth of culture that is also available in these areas.

    While Brisbane is mostly known for its beaches and a variety of theme parks located just outside the city, travelers who are staying there will likely find a ton to do within the city's limits, according to the New Zealand Herald. Take the ongoing Brisbane Festival for example, a massive three-week event that sees a number of the city's cultural troupes in areas like theatre, dance and music come together for performances. The event kicks off with Riverfire, which sees special torches lit along the city's waterway in order to give an illusion of a flaming river.

    But even when the Brisbane Festival is not happening, there are a number of permanent cultural installations that make Brisbane worth a visit. Art lovers should check out the Gallery of Modern Art, where they can view a number of rotating exhibits like a retrospective of Italian fashion designer Valentino Garavani. And that's just one of many chic restaurants, boutiques and galleries that Brisbane offers.
