Brisbane is a relatively easy city to move around in.
Many of the attractions are in, or quite near, the heart of the city and within easy walking distance, including South Bank, Roma Street Parkland and the Botanical Gardens There is also a host of historic buildings worth seeing situated in or adjoining the central business district, within walking distance or from the hop-on hop-off bus service.
Our City Guide provides a map of the city area showing the location of the main places of interest.
The Brisbane River snakes its way around the central business district with city ferry ferry stops along either side of the river. The ferries allow quick access to points further along the river, such as Bulimba. Ferry cruises are a good way of orientating yourself with how Brisbane has been built on a river.
Buses provide easy access to eating, entertainment, shopping and entertainment precincts such as Fortitude Valley and Paddington.
