Jejakbede.online - Of course, you should visit these most interesting places when you are traveling in Brisbane, Australia.

Brisbane is one of the major cities in Australia, located on the east side of the continent. It is approximately a one-and-a-half-hour flight from Sydney, which is the international airport for Australia.

As the capital city of Queensland, Brisbane is known for its cleanliness and tidiness. The traffic is very calm and comfortable.

The city is intersected by the Brisbane River, which flows into the sea on the eastern side. Besides serving as a transportation route, the river is also a popular tourist attraction.

Brisbane boasts a pleasant climate with fresh air, making it enjoyable for tourists, especially those coming from tropical countries.

The same was true for us when we visited Brisbane for a short course that lasted a couple of weeks. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The short course we attended was part of the Australia Award Indonesia program.

The short study in which we participated not only provided knowledge related to the study's topic but also offered us deeper insights into Australian culture.

Here is a video showcasing our journey as participants of the short course from Australia Award Indonesia.

We spent approximately nine days in Brisbane, staying at the Quest River Apartment, situated in the city's vibrant heart.

In addition, he showed us some essential locations, such as nearby ATM counters close to our apartment and the nearest minimarket to cater to our daily necessities during our stay.

Now, I would like to share with you a few intriguing places that will enhance your travel experience in Brisbane.
