Brisbane Region

Brisbane's enticing energy sets the scene for the dynamic landscapes that surround the city in every direction. Whether you're heading out of town for country markets, events, and world-class exhibitions or lush green spaces, idyllic islands and natural wonders, you'll find a wide range of unique attractions whichever way you choose to roam. Highlights of Brisbane's regions include:

Scenic Rim
Follow the changing landscape west and you'll find yourself in the Scenic Rim, Brisbane's world-heritage listed backyard, home to lush rainforests, spectacular mountain ranges and ancient landforms. Food and wine, romantic escapes, camping, bushwalking, country pubs, art, history and adventures are all here, tied together by the landscape and the beautiful towns and villages dotted throughout the area.

Country Valleys
The rolling hills and green open spaces of the Country Valleys provide postcard perfect views of endless horizons, sleepy towns and pristine lakes that make it hard to believe you're only an hour away from the lights of the big city.

Ipswich
As Queensland's oldest provincial city, Ipswich will charm you with its rich history and handsome heritage buildings right before it reveals its vibrant cultural scene and growing cosmopolitan dining options.

Moreton Bay and Islands
Explore the aquatic playground and marine sanctuary that is Moreton Bay and Islands, encompassing 125 kilometres of stunning blue waters. Brimming with natural wonders and home to two of the world's largest sand islands - Moreton Island and North Stradbroke Island - this diverse paradise is famous for its white sandy beaches, rugged coastlines and array of outdoor activities.

The many bayside villages in the area are a mere 25 kilometres from Brisbane Central Business District and provide a charming community of restaurants, cafes, a winery commanding expansive bay views, independent art galleries, museums and bayside picnic spots. For a special and unique treat visit between June and October to see pods of whales putting on a show.
