Brisbane is Yours to Explore
Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland is the place to be! It’s buzzing dining and nightlife, exciting attractions and events, arts & culture, is the perfect backdrop to soak in the Aussie outdoor lifestyle with sub-tropical climates and botanical back yard. From abseiling down cliffs to having a dip in a beach in the middle of the city, bar hopping through historic pubs and wandering laneways, the River City will delight you at every turn.
Food and Drinks
Bring your sunglasses and an appetite, because Brisbane’s thriving dining scene is in love with the outdoors. Check out Howard Smith Wharves, Brisbane’s latest riverside entertainment and lifestyle precinct, conveniently located within Brisbane City beneath the iconic Story Bridge. Originally constructed in the 1930s, this historic space has bounced back to life and now provides the perfect setting to eat, drink, play and stay. Come on down and sample locally-brewed schooners at Felons Brewing Co, relax on the lawn with take-away fish and chips, enjoy a spritz while watching the sunset at Mr Percival’s and dine at unique restaurants including GRECA Greek Taverna with both rising stars and acclaimed chefs at their helm.
Do not miss Brisbane’s largest street food market Eat Street Northshore which is unlike anywhere else in the world. Eat Street combines delicious food, fabulous sounds of big bands & live music, special cocktails and millions of fairy lights – not to be missed every Friday, Saturday & Sundays.
A great way to experience the true beauty of Brisbane is to get to know the Brisbane River.

Nature and Wildlife
Right in Brisbane’s backyard, there’s an island made entirely of sand. Moreton Island is the backdrop for laid back beach holidays and adrenaline adventures alike. White sandy beaches line the island's ocean side and are ideal for swimming, surfing and fishing, while the sheltered western side is more relaxed, with crystal clear blue water gently lapping against its shore. Spend two nights at Tangalooma Island Resort where you can have the opportunity to hand-feed the bottlenose dolphins which visit the beach each evening. The resort has a licensed feeding program and is the only place in the bay where dolphin feeding is allowed.
