Fairs and congresses in Brisbane, Australia

Brisbane is the capital of the state of Queensland and with 2.2 million inhabitants one of the largest cities in Australia. Today, the former penal settlement is an important economic and commercial center; the major economic sectors are information technology, telecommunication and also tourism. One of the most popular sights of the city is the Kangaroo Point Cliffs Park. From here, you do not only have spectacular views of the city and the eponymous river; when you are lucky, the members of the Nunukul Yugg clan will tell you stories from dreamtime, the Aborigines’ mythology. Unfortunately, you will not be able to take a picture of a kangaroo here. However, this is possible in the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the first protected area for koalas, where also other wildlife can be found. Those who want to see the city skyline by night can treat themselves to a ride in the 60 meters high Ferris wheel in the south. From Europe, Brisbane can be reached via Sydney or Melbourne. The inland flight takes around 1.5 to 2 hours. Adventurers can also take a rental and drive along the coastal road A1/M1 for about 1,000 kilometers.
