Despite being a stopping point for exploring other parts of Queensland, there is actually a lot of things to do in Brisbane.

Brisbaners have a laid-back attitude and are incredibly friendly, making all who visit here want to unpack their bags for good.

Things to Do in Brisbane

Despite many people skipping Brisbane on their visits to Australia because Sydney seems to steal all the attention, there’s lots to see and do in Brisbane.

Go to the lookout at the top of Mount Coot-tha

It’s nestled in Brisbane’s Botanic Gardens, and from the top, you’ll be surrounded by rainforest and sweeping views of the city.

Take a ferry on the Brisbane River

There are plenty of boat tours of Brisbane and CityCat ferries to help you get around but my tip is the free Cityhopper.

Walk The Promenade along the Southbank

The sparkling Brisbane River next to the South Bank parklands sets everything off beautifully and there’s a huge range of cafes and restaurants.

Visit the Southbank Museum

Do visit the Queensland Museum, Brisbane’s (free) State Museum where you can learn about Queensland’s history, geography, and native people from the hands on displays and beautiful exhibits.

Visit Pine Koala Sanctuary

If you’re into seeing and cuddling Australian animals and can’t make it to Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast then Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary will deliver the goods.
