Get out of the city and see what else the region has to offer. Take a day-trip to the Scenic Rim, Somerset or Tamborine National Park and go on a bushwalk to seek out hidden waterfalls. Hop on a ferry to Moreton or North Stradbroke Islands, or flop on the beaches of the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast. Hire a car to get the best out of the region with plenty of self-drive adventures on offer.
