Brisbane destination guide
Experience the best of Brisbane
Planning a trip to one of the world’s most liveable cities? Queensland’s capital has boomed in the last decade, and this riverside city is now a hotbed of arts, culture and innovative food. It’s also ideally situated near some gorgeous tropical hotspots which makes it an ideal all-rounder, equally perfect for family holidays and gourmet getaways.
Much of life - and transport - happens on and around the river (hello, al fresco dining and weekend markets). Brisbane has some major museums and galleries, including QAGOMA, which incorporates some of the many free things for kids to do in Brisbane, and lively inner city suburbs such as New Farm and Fortitude Valley, where eclectic designer boutiques and live music venues rule. You really can enjoy the best of Brisbane on a budget!
Brisbane is a major foodie town, home to everything from three-hatted restaurants like Urbane to a thriving food truck scene, so bring your appetite and dine your way through Brisbane’s best eats. For tropical adventures a little further afield, hop on a ferry and go exploring the Moreton Bay Islands, where you can hit the resorts, chill out on North Stradbroke, spot a dolphin or toboggan down sand dunes.
