Beautiful places surrounding Brisbane

Graduation season is around the corner! So today I will share about some places or activities that I have visited and tried before and hope it may be helpful for those are planning a trip for the family and friends who come to attend the graduation ceremony at QUT.

  • Hot air balloon. The package normally includes the champagne buffet breakfast in the vineyard after the ride. If you are wine lovers, you can still taste the wine there and grab some if you like it!

Before we flew to the sky.

The view is really breathtaking up there! Once again I was amazed by the beauty of the nature in Australia again from the hot air balloon ride!

  • Cleveland Point Lighthouse. It is located on the north-eastern tip of Cleveland Point, at Cleveland, a suburb approximately 25 kilometres east-south-east of Brisbane. Basically what we did on that day were just taking photos with the lighthouse, enjoy the sea breeze and had lunch and ice cream at the restaurant nearby.

The following photos are lighthouse and me.

  • Tangalooma island resort is located at Moreton island. It is only a 75-minute catamaran cruise from Brisbane. There are many activities you can do there so it is a place which suitable for the family.

One of the highlight activity there is definitely dolphin feeding in every evening. You will have a chance to hand feed the wild dolphins there! I had an interesting dolphin feeding experience since then!
