Brisbane, the river city, is an excellent place to live, work, or visit. There’s no shortage of serene parks with breathtaking sunset views, blonde beaches, and diverse wildlife.

Brisbane is perfect for day trips, hiking, and peaceful walks along the riverfront. It is home to three of the largest sand islands in the world, rainforests, and rivers with gorgeous waterfalls.

Read on to discover some of the best places to visit on day trips this summer in an SUV people mover from Betta Auto Hire.

1.    Australia Zoo
Australia Zoo is famous for exotic animals such as zebras, cheetahs, Sumatran tigers, elephants, and rhinos. You’ll enjoy watching live animal shows on the solar-powered Crocoseum.

If that’s not exciting enough, book a visit to Bindi’s Island. The experience of coming face to face with beauties such as the cheetahs, tigers, red pandas, koalas, rhinos, meerkats, and the Leapin’ Lemur is surreal.

Don’t stress how to move around; simply hire an SUV People Mover through Betta Auto Hire. Remember to bring your sunscreen, water bottle, sunhat, and some walking shoes.

2.    Sunshine Coast
The Sunshine Coast is a vast treasure trove. The golden beaches of Noosa and the blue-green waves lapping on Laguna Bay are beyond serene.

You can visit the Noosa National Park and enjoy walking along the trails. The Glasshouse Mountains to the south have twelve distinctive peaks, where you can walk up or go rock climbing on some of them.

Mooloolaba is another popular spot, with lovely beaches, parks, and a fishing spot between the river and the ocean. Enjoy watersports on the seven beaches in Caloundra, where you can go windsurfing, jet skiing, paddle boarding, and kayaking.

3.    Stradbroke Island
Stradbroke Island is the world’s second-largest sand island. Jumpstart your day with a seaside walk on the North Gorge Walk and head to Point Lookout.

It’s an excellent spot to take pictures as you watch sharks, dolphins, manta rays, and whales if you visit between May and October. After a day of exploring, you can go for an evening swim in the freshwater lakes.
