Exploring Brisbane while taking a CELTA

There is a flood of exciting activities to do in Brisbane during your CELTA, whatever your choice is. However, besides the variety of top tourist attractions like the Lone Pine Sanctuary and the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mount Coot-tha, there are some top activities you shouldn’t miss while you complete your TEFL course training in Brisbane.

Take a ride on the Wheel of Brisbane for an adrenaline-filled adventure at the South Bank Parklands and then go night kayaking at the wrecks off the shores of Moreton Island. With just the moonlight and led bulbs that attract fish and turtles, this night trip is a memorable adventure you should try.

If you’ve never been on a steam locomotive, then this is your chance. The last steam locomotive built in Australia, also called the Steam Train Sunday is available in Brisbane to give you a bumpily exciting ride across the city, giving you the feeling of an ancient traveler from history.

Finish off your adventure by trying the delicious foods and drinks of Brisbane. Begin with the Rainbow Latte, which you can find at the Piggy Back Café, then try the gnocchi with pork and fennel sausage.
