Brisbane is a large, sprawling city with a public transport network of bus, train and ferry options.

From Brisbane's international or domestic airport you can catch a train that links to through the suburban network into the heart of the city. 

Most transport options travel through Brisbane's CBD area to and from the outer suburbs and you can access all public transport timetables and maps at Translink

Another way to make your way around inner city areas is via a City Cycle bicycle. There are around 150 CityCycle stations  across Brisbane’s city centre, stretching from Newstead to West End and Toowong. You first need to subscribe to the service but then it is free to use as long as the bikes are returned within half-hour intervals. After this half-hour of free use expires, a service charge applies.

For a scenic view of Brisbane, travel on the Brisbane river on a CityCat network which stretches from The University of Queensland at St Lucia to Northshore Hamilton.
