Food and drink

Make the most of the sunshine and sit down at an al fresco restaurant, or grab tasty street food at the Eat Street Northshore Markets, South Bank Markets and Jan Powers Farmers Markets. Brisbane is bursting with bars, so make your way from rooftop to laneway in search of the finest cocktail. Try a limited-edition brew at a local craft beer bar or take the CityCat along the river for a pub crawl with a difference.

Start Exploring

Day trips from Brisbane

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.

Wildlife

Cuddle a koala at the Lone Pine Sanctuary, hand-feed wild dolphins on Moreton Island and spot whales from the North Gorge Walk at North Stradbroke Island.
