Things to do

You haven’t really seen Brisbane until you’ve been on a CityCat ferry – the smoothest way to travel to the CBD, South Bank and New Farm Park. Another fun outing is the picturesque walk along the over-water pathway from New Farm to the CBD stopping at Howard Smith Wharves precinct. Refuel at one of the many trendy restaurants.

South Bank and Roma Street Parkland are Brisbane’s premier inner-city outdoor recreation spots. Refresh for free in the sparkling lagoon surrounded by white, sandy beaches and sub-tropical plants.

But venture beyond the city limits to the leafy riverside neighbourhood of Sheewood and you’ll be rewarded with sprawling lush parkland, along with wetlands and lagoons that are home to an array flora and fauna. Take the time to plan your visit and discover one of the many attractions on offer.

Food and drink

Kick back in a beer garden in one of the transformed shipping containers in Fortitude valley, the hip space spans three levels, including a rooftop bar and alfresco courtyard. A delightfully organic alternative is the area at Wandering Coos in South Brisbane, where you can dine on fresh produce in an urban herb garden.
