Discover Your Local Outer West Brisbane Area
Whether you’re looking for adventure, once in a lifetime experiences or simply looking for a place to enjoy the great outdoors, you can find it all in the Outer West Brisbane area.
Since before the turn of the century, locals and visitors alike have been flocking here, and it’s no surprise why. The iconic Brisbane Lookout offers breathtaking panoramic views of Brisbane City that stretch all the way out over Moreton Bay. Visit during the day and enjoy the many other activities nearby, including the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens, the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium and the myriad of walking and cycling tracks just waiting for you to explore them. Or, visit at night and see the view in a whole new way, with a glittering sea of lights that will transform your night into something magical. Have dinner at Summit Restaurant while taking in the awe-inspiring view with delectable food and fine wine.
Prepare yourself for an experience like no other and head to one of the top 10 zoos in the world, the Lone Pink Koala Sanctuary . More than 130 koalas call the world’s first and largest koala sanctuary home, but koalas aren’t the only ones! Over 100 species of native Australian wildlife live at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, including wombats, dingos, emus, crocodiles and of course, kangaroos. Cuddle a koala, get close and personal with a snake, feed the kangaroos and discover the beauty of Australia’s native wildlife.
If you’re looking for an outdoor adventure, hike through eucalypt forests and discover the tranquil, rustic setting of J C Slaughter Falls . Wood-fire barbeques, picnic shelters, lush banks, an open air bush chapel and a sparkling stream make this hidden gem the perfect place to escape the noise of the city. Take one of the many hiking trails and venture into the depths of Mt Coot-tha Reserve, or simply spend the day in complete relaxation surrounded by shady trees and native wildlife.
