Surprising fun museum with a great range of taxidermy and prehistoric displays. Two areas were being developed for new exhibitions so it would be even better when they open

I loved the museum and GOMA being so close and being able to visit both in one day with visitors who were short of time.

An interesting and informative museum to visit for an hour or two. The ANZAC section is a must see display. The highlight, I believe, is the WW1 German tank called Mephisto. A couple of sections require a payment to enter, such as the Science Centre....More

Great museum, free to get in and it has a lovely cafe overlooking the river. You can also sit outside. Plenty to see - you can spend a few hours here. You have to leave backpacks at reception though.

The Museum extends over five (I think) floors and has many interesting exhibits. On the animal floor, we watched a presentation by a member of staff who displayed a number of animal skulls and commented on distinctive features of each. This was well done and...More

Where to park my car? (9 Replies)
I am planning to have a day trip to Brisbane during my visit to Gold Coast. I would like to visit City Hall, South Bank Park, Queensland Museum and University of Queensland etc. Could anyone suggest me where should I park my rental car? What will be the approximate parking fee? Should I visit Brisbane on Weekdays or Weekend? By the way, We are 2 adults + 3 teenagers. Thank you.

obviously it will be less busy in the week days but Brisbane is not a busy city by world standards so you might find more events and things to see on weekends! it depends what time of year you arrive etc. There are many parking station in Brisbane and yes all require payment. For example you could park in Myer Centre at Queen Street Mall, the price for over 3 hours is $50 AUD. South Bank parking area is $36 for the day, which isn't bad, there is plenty to see at South Bank plus the...More

Day trip itinerary to Brisbane with 3 kids (1 Reply)
Hi, We will be driving to Brisbane from Gold Coast with 3 kids (10, 6 & 2 years old). I need some help on my itinerary. My current plan is to visit South Bank, Queensland Museum and Queens Street Mall. With my 3 kids in mind, are these 3 places ideal or is there any other recommendation? And how do I go about in Brisbane, I read about citycat and cityhopper, which one should we take to reach south bank or we could simply drive there? Thank you.
