Much has been said about city of Brisbane and the bustling metropolis that it is. The capital city, which is Queensland’s most popular and most populous, is social, sunny, and sophisticated; it has never been one to charm its visitors with an idle calm known in other regions in the land of OZ. In fact, as one of the top three cities for local and international travel in the country, it has always been the contrary.
With all there is in Brisbane, listing down the best might not be fair. There are hundreds, literally, of things to do but we had to list down our picks and here they are, without further ado.
Things To Do in Brisbane
Eat Everything from Everywhere
Foodie or newbie, you’ll find Brisbane spellbindingly amazing and full to the brim with spectacular food. Food in Australia, like most parts of its culture, is largely influenced by its neighbours; all fusing into one giant (and awesome) pot of gold. The city is basically a mecca for all the best food not only from Australia but also from all over the world. Brissie takes it gastronomy seriously from bite-sized wonders, full course meals, great-tasting and classic wine and coffee, and the freshest produce from the street markets.
Here in Brisbane, discover delicious and explore endless food possibilities. Some of the must try hotspots are Sono Japanese Restaurant, La Vue Waterfront Restaurant and Miel Container for the a taste of authentic Aussie.
Energetic and electric, suffice it to say that Brisbane is eclectic—one will not run out of things to do among the variety of activities. Whether it is for the entire family or for a group of thrill-seekers, there are adventures from mild to wild. Play or watch a game of rugby, cricket or tennis, cycle, paddle or kayak along Brisbane River, go on ghost tours in Toowong Cemetery with friends, or, better yet, simply go camping. If you’re going out with the family, visit the Warner Brothers studio or Dreamworld.
Rest and Relax
We know, we know. We said that Brisbane isn’t really the place for relaxation but when you come to think of it, amid all the busy, there’s always a place where you can recharge and relax. After a full day’s worth of adventures in Brisbane overflowing plate, you need a day or two step back, relax and enjoy the silence. Go on a cruise in Brisbane River, one of the most sought-after things to do. If you crave for more idle ordeals, unwind and be one with nature in the City Botanic Gardens or at Roma Street Parklands.
Upon your arrival in Brisbane, you’ll find that it is one of the most diverse places you’ll ever visit in Australia.The city is offers a mix of cultural influences from all over the world particularly in Asia and United Kingdom That being said, part of the variety that was passed on over generations is appreciation for art. The city’s calendar is bursting to the seams with festivals of art, music and entertainment. Aside from visiting one of the many museums, view public art displayed along the River. Plus, street art has been rampantly making waves; graffiti decorated (yes, decorated) on walls making the already young vibe even fresh
