November 10, 2017

Leading global travel authority Lonely Planet has named Brisbane one of the world’s Top 10 Best Culture Trips for Families in 2018.

“For a taste of the uber-relaxed, outdoorsy, barbecue-loving culture that is quintessentially Australian, a trip to Brisbane hits the right notes for those with kids”, writes Imogen Hall in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2018, published this week.

“Splash around on man-made Streets Beach (perfect for small swimmers) or let off steam in the tree-house playground at New Farm Park. Relax with a BBQ in the riverside South Bank Parklands before checking out koalas at nearby Lone Pine Sanctuary,” said Ms Hall. For a taste of ancient Australian culture, there’s Aboriginal art in the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), which runs sessions for children.”

1. Oman
2. Norway
3. Namibia
4. Mexico
5. Emilia-Romagna, Italy
6. Orkney, Scotland
7. Amsterdam, The Netherlands
8. Nashville, USA

1. Budapest, Hungary
2. The Nile, Egypt
3. Oaxaca, Mexico
4. Napa Valley, USA

Lonely Planet’s writers and experts spend time on the road in almost every destination on the planet, and each year they report which destinations are set to take off, offering travellers the best experience available. The destinations selected for Best in Travel meet specific criteria. It could be that something special is going on in the year ahead, or there’s been recent development and a lot of buzz about the place; that it offers travellers new things to see or do; or that the Lonely Planet team of experts thinks it’s been overlooked and underrated and suggests travellers visit before the crowds do.
