The Wellington Apartment Hotel on Wellington Road, Kangaroo Point is accommodation near the CityCat Ferry Brisbane. With the nearest terminal just minutes away at Mowbray Park you can be assured that you will be closer to the CBD than you think. For visitors to Brisbane, the CityCat is also a great way to enjoy a cruise and discover the city of Brisbane. It’s possible to jump on the CityCat to ride up to view the mouth of the Brisbane River, and then scoot back in the other direction to the University of Queensland. With toilets on board, and a time limit of two hours it’s easy to fit a round trip journey in.
Of course the best stop is on the South Bank terminal where it’s jam packed with the major cultural attractions in Brisbane. Institutions such as the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA), Queensland Art Gallery, Queensland Museum and State Library of Queensland can be found along Grey Street. In the South Bank Parklands you will find the Nepalese Pagoda, Picnic Island and Streets Beach. The Nepalese Pagoda is the last remaining exhibit from the World Expo 1988, and once you see it you’ll understand why it truly is a gift to the people of Brisbane.
Streets Beach, South Bank is another attraction that is worth visiting. Bring your beach towel and swimsuit, Streets Beach is possibly the only city beach in the world. Running parallel with the Brisbane River, the beach which is actually a pool occupies the length of five football fields and is lined by silky white sands and patrolled by bonafide surf life saving guards. A slightly surreal city experience, but also worth trying.
After a hard day at the museums, galleries, pagodas and urban beaches you’ll be well deserving of refreshments. You’ll have no trouble finding a cafe, restaurant, or bar to replenish. Check anywhere in Little Stanley Street, Parklands, River Quay or Grey Street. There’s bound to be somewhere that suits your taste.
Make sure you book your accommodation near the CityCat Ferry Brisbane. The Wellington Apartment Hotel on Wellington Road, Kangaroo Point is a sure bet.
