Brisbane destination guide


The ultimate Brisbane travel guide 

Brisbane’s attractions such as the Queensland Museum, Queen Street Mall and South Bank Parklands, are as exciting as the landscape is lush. Balmy weather calls for alfresco dining – either in the shade or under the stars at one of the city’s fine riverside restaurants or stylish watering holes.

When you’ve had your fill of food and drinks, there’s plenty to fill your social calendar, most notably events like its many lifestyle and foodie markets and its big-ticket cultural events. If you find some cheap flight tickets to Brisbane, a shopping splurge in the Queen Street Mall might also be in order. Day trips to the hilly hinterland or the sand and turquoise waters of Moreton Bay, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast are within easy reach.

When to go

Autumn’s a great time to visit as you can expect cooler evenings but dry, warm sunny days (and an average of 21°C!)

Winter (June – August)
Average temperatures fall between 11-21°C
You might hear the locals talking about those chilly ‘Ekka winds’, as Brisbane’s annual Ekka (The Royal Queensland Show), rolls around and the temperatures drop.

What to do in 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.
