THINGS TO DO IN BRISBANE

ART GALLERIES

Brisbane has its Gallery of Modern Art and the Queensland Art Gallery, both based in Southbank. The Gallery of Modern Art, also known as GoMA is free for you to wander around and experience its ever-changing exhibits. Meanwhile, the Queensland Art Gallery also offers free exhibits but often has extra and unique exhibits available for a fee.

SPORTS

Throughout the year, Brisbane has a variety of sports games to attend at The Gabba and Suncorp Stadium (Lang Park). For a typically Australian experience, grab yourself some tickets to see cricket, football, rugby and more at one of the stadiums.

VISIT THE COASTS

One great thing about Brisbane is its proximity to the gorgeous Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. Because of this, it is easy to plan a day trip to visit some of the attractions they have to offer.

The Gold Coast theme parks are a drawcard for tourists. Sea World, Movie World and Wet’n’Wild are just some of the parks on offer.

You can also visit Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast, home of Steve Irwin the Crocodile Hunter. The zoo has animals native to Australia and many from all over the world. They have a huge emphasis on conservation and teaching visitors to Australia Zoo about the animals. In Brisbane, you can visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for koala cuddles or to view some other incredible wildlife.

Brisbane is often referred to as the River City and often recognised by images of the Southbank lagoon.  If you want to escape the city, both coasts are internationally recognised for their beaches. It’s definitely worth a day-trip to experience everything they have to offer!

NATIONAL PARKS

Brisbane and its surrounds have many incredible national parks which you can visit.

Mount Coot-tha is a national park with many hiking trails leading to the summit which overlooks Brisbane.

Samford Regional Park is also only a short distance from the centre of Brisbane and you will be amazed how the scenery changes from city buildings to rolling hills so quickly.

If you’re heading up to the Sunshine Coast, the Glasshouse Mountains features some excellent climbing and hiking opportunities. For hiking, visit Noosa National Park to hike along the coast beside the ocean.

CAFÉ AND RESTAURANT SCENE

Brisbane may be a young city, but it boasts an incredible variety of places to eat.

Dine along the Brisbane River at Eagle Street Pier, or stop into Southbank and experience international cuisines and take a walk through the parklands.

You can visit the Eat Street Markets, which are a famous collective of street-food outlets based out of shipping containers and open weekends.
