Brisbane – Tourism and more

The majority of cheap flights to Australia arrive in Sydney. As a large number of international and top airlines offer direct or nonstop flights to Sydney, added the presence of Sydney Harbor and Opera, the higher tourism concentration in the region is limited to Sydney. Yet, Melbourne, by dint of its amazing reputation, colonial structures and the one of this kind tram service, stands second. In recent times, the green and lush Brisbane city of Australia has managed to attract more tourists than ever. The natural stunning landscapes of the city and botanical garden, Brisbane are its specialty.

Today, tourism plays a major role in Brisbane’s economy. Actually, there has also been an increase in the number of cheap flights to Brisbane and new routes to the city offered by world reckoned airlines. The city has evolved and emerged as the third most popular destinations, after Sydney and Melbourne in Australia.
