Things to See & Do in Brisbane

story by: Inspire Queensland

Immerse yourself into the vibrant city and friendly atmosphere of Queensland’s capital, Brisbane. 

Nestled along the Brisbane River that curves its way through the city, delight in cockatoos and kookaburras in abundance at the many green leafy parks, before heading into the urban precincts and indulge in world-class fare at one of many alfresco restaurants and bars overlooking the glittering Story Bridge. 

Spend hours browsing the markets or the internationally renowned art exhibitions, then put on something sensational and hit the thriving nightlife in Fortitude Valley. 

You’re already planning your next visit so you can venture a little further afield, including a day trip to stunning Moreton Island, just an hour’s boat ride away. 


Brisbane River Citycat – spend a day getting your bearings by jumping on a CityCat and exploring the city and its riverside precincts like New Farm, Kangaroo Point, South Bank and West End. 

Free Bus Service – Take the `Loop’, a free and convenient bus service that travels around the CBD in both directions and gives you a great feel for the layout of the city (Mon-Fri) 

Southbank – Soak up some rays and cool off with a free dip at Streets Beach (Australia’s only inner city beach), a water park, walks, promenades and lots of restaurants, plus check out the Young Designers Market on Little Stanley Street 

Foodie Heaven – Dining hotspots include Eagle Street Pier in the City, River Quay at South Bank and the eat streets in urban villages like Boundary Street in West End, Oxford Street in Bulimba and Logan Road in Woolloongabba. You’ll be in foodie heaven with Moreton Bay seafood, fresh farm produce and local boutique Queensland wineries.
