What to do in Brisbane: The Ultimate Travel Guide



Are you heading to the Australian Sunshine State any time soon? If you are, and you’re stopping off in Brisbane (the State’s capital), then you’ve got a lot of fun ahead of you. With Brisbane being graced with 283 days of sunshine a year, it is a wonderful place for sun worshippers. And, as with the rest of Australia, there are numerous beaches to explore.

Read on for tips on what to do in Brisbane. 

Eat, swim, and chill around South Bank

South Bank is very versatile with many activities for you to do and places to visit. You can relax on the grass, eat at one of the many restaurants, or visit the little botanical garden that allows you to pick your own herbs for free. If you have children or fancy a swim, there is also a free man-made beach that’s open during the summer.

Remember to keep an eye out for any events being held on South Bank. You can check on their website!

Go shopping

As you’d expect from a major city, there are many shopping opportunities. Head to Brisbane’s CBD (Central Business District) and check out all the shops. If you head to Brisbane’s CBD around midday or on the weekend, you are likely to see live music performances, and this can enhance your shopping experience.

Hike your surroundings

Mount Choot-tha makes for a glorious hike, with the mountain being a challenging but enjoyable 287m. There are many bush trails to walk, as well as sunrise yoga and a picturesque botanic garden and greenhouse to admire.

Are you a fan of running? Well, there’s a 10km running tour for those that love to wear their running shoes. 

Enjoy the nightlife

There’s plenty of bars and night clubs around, so if you’re after a cocktail or a beer while overlooking the city lights, Brisbane has a lot to offer you. Head to the Elixir Rooftop Bar, where you can relax on a rooftop terrace under fairy lights. You can also head to Cleos on Nile for a special experience.

However, you can also visit the Cosmic Skydome, go Night Kayaking, or head to the Eat Street on the weekend. You will never be bored when it comes to Brisbane at night!

Visit the koala sanctuary

Australia is known for its extraordinary wildlife, especially the koala bear. With the bushfires spreading and taking the world by storm, however, many koala bears need to be rehomed, looked after, and rehabilitated so that they can survive. You can support koala sanctuaries by visiting them, donating, and learning more about how you can help.

Head to the Roma Street Parkland

Visit the Roma Street Parkland for sub-tropical nature. You can explore 16 hectares of nature in this park, and if you are lucky, you could see some incredible wildlife such as lizards and birds. This is the best place to relax in the sun with a good book and plenty of water. If you are lucky, you could experience their Moonlight Cinema – where you sit and watch a movie while surrounded by luscious parkland – which happens during the summer months.
