BrisbaneAccording to census data from 2011 Brisbane has just shy of 2 million residents in the Significant Urban Area. This coastal city has no shortage of things to do for families. From indoor activities like museums, art galleries, libraries, art centers for creating, and laser tag, bowling, skating rinks etc. to outdoor fun like the Children’s Hide & Seek Trail, bike riding, the drive in cinema, pools, water theme parks and mini golf.

Brisbane, Australia has been working hard to brand itself as a family friendly, world class events destination. With the activity coming up at Suncorp Stadium this year it appears they are off to a great beginning. Mega star Taylor Swift will be visiting in December this year, and Liverpool FC will visit Queensland to play against the Brisbane Roar for the first time in their 123 year club history.
