Transport

Brisbane is a city on a human scale, so its city center is easily explored on foot. To get from one place to another, the CityHopper Shuttle is an easy and free way (good for your budget, that!).

Others

Alcohol consumption in Brisbane is strictly regulated and severely punished for excess. On public roads, it is forbidden to consume alcohol, so be careful.

For smokers, be aware that smoking in closed public places is also prohibited, even in restaurants or pubs. In addition, a peculiarity of Australia is that it is forbidden to smoke in a car with a minor under 16. So be careful if you are traveling with children or teenagers!

Subsequently, European settlers came to the area, and it was in 1859, Queensland has been proclaimed an independent colony of New South Wales.
