Brisbane is a fantastic city for outdoor activities. If you are looking for an adventure, Brisbane should be your first stop with over 1 million acres of land and water to explore! From hiking in the rainforest hillsides, kayaking on the river or spending time at one of our many beaches – there will always be something new that catches your eye.
I have put together three of the best attractions in Brisbane, Australia. These places are guaranteed to be fun for everyone!
Check Out Roma Street Parkland
Roma Street Parkland is a 16-hectare nature oasis in the middle of Brisbane, Queensland’s Central Park. The park contains more than 1250 different plants and animals from all over Australasia!
Brisbane is a great place to relax and enjoy nature with plenty of events for you! Check out Roma Street Parkland, one of the most popular parks in Brisbane. If you’re looking for something more hands-on though, try hosting your own barbecue at this park!
Roma Street Parkland hosts many free events throughout the year so make sure you check their facebook page for more information. Most are completely free or have affordable packages too – it’s definitely worth checking them out if these types of things interest you (or know someone who might be interested). This is a great place for people to get out and enjoy themselves while still being able to see all that Brisbane has to offer!
Hike Mount Coot-tha
Mount Coot-tha is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Brisbane, and you’ll want to check it out. Situated on a 287m mountain with breathtaking views for miles around, Mount Coot-tha was once home to the Yugarapul Aboriginal people before being taken over by European settlers who renamed it “Honey Mountain” due to its abundance of native bees.
There are many ways to see Mount Coot-tha! You can hike the bush trails, practice yoga at sunrise and check out some of the great botanical gardens. But if you’re looking for a more active way of exploring this national park then join in on one 10km running tour during which they will take you through their favorite running paths as well make sure that while they guide your group up to Mount Coot-tha summit!
Go On A River Dinner Cruise
If you’re looking to take an evening cruise with your partner, consider taking a Brisbane River Dinner Cruise! This world class dinner is perfect for those who want the best live entertainment and Australian contemporary buffet menu on their side. With cruises starting at 7 pm from Eagle Street Pier in downtown Brisbane, this date night’s sure to be unforgettable as it passes through the scenic city skyline.
The fastest way to get there would be the Eagle Street Pier. It’s just a 5-minute walk from the city center and it has frequent trains departing every 15 minutes during weekdays.
Brisbane is the “sunshine capital of Australia” and many travelers find themselves falling in love with this city. The warm weather, convenience, versatility and culture make it an ideal destination for anyone looking to explore a new place!
