Top 5 things to do in Brisbane

While away a weekend exploring Brisbane City with these top five things to do:

South Bank

On the bank of the Brisbane River, South Bank is where Brisbane’s lifestyle comes alive. Discover 17 hectares of Parklands, swim at Streets Beach, see the city from above on The Wheel of Brisbane and visit Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art.

Fortitude Valley

Australian designer boutiques, independent art galleries and an array of dining options draw travellers to the Fortitude Valley by day, while live music venues, bars and clubs set the scene at night.

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

Hold a koala, handfeed kangaroos and meet the local wildlife in a natural bushland setting at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary – the world’s largest koala sanctuary, just 12km from the centre of Brisbane.

Cruise the Brisbane River

Choose from a selection of river cruises and see the city from the water. Opt for a lunch tour, indulge in high tea or take an evening diner cruise complete with live entertainment. Alternatively, hop on board a free CityHopper ferry for a novel way to get around.

Climb Story Bridge

For a birds eye view of Brisbane and beyond, take the two hour adventure tour to the top of the 80 metre Story Bridge and learn about the history and heritage of the city along the way.
