Brisbane's geography lends itself to the discovery of a wide range of Pokemon. Parklands (which are everywhere) lend themselves to the grassy types & some flying types - try out The City Botanic Gardens, King Edward Park, or Kalinga Park. Also the Showgrounds are supposed to be full of Growlithe if you're trying to build up your numbers. If you're looking for water types, then anywhere along the Brisbane River will do the trick. The biggest & most popular spot in Brisbane for Pokemon has been Southbank - it's well lit at night, so it's not uncommon to see up to a hundred people chasing them around - this also means lots of lures!
