1. Cuddle a koala!
Lone Pine is the world's largest koala sanctuary, and offers visitors a chance to cuddle one of the 130 fuzzy critters at any time!
HOT tip: You can also visit the park's curious platypuses, hand-feed kangaroos or see 92 other native Aussie species here.
2. Swim at the beach, without leaving the CBD
Pop to the opulent parkland area of Southbank, across the river, to swim at Streets Beach - the country's only seaside in the middle of a city.
HOT tip: You don't need to worry which day you visit Streets. There are lifeguards patrolling seven days a week, so if the sun is out, come on down.
3. Get a little bit cultured
Also located in Southbank is the famous Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art building (QAGOMA). There are over 16,000 works here, from both past and present artists.
HOT tip: Don't worry about your poor wallet, as entry to QAGOMA is totally free. Some specific exhibitions may charge, but the vast majority don't.
4. Climb a bridge, tell the story
Want something really unique to talk about when you get home? Book a climbing experience up Story Bridge, which over a kilometre long and 72 metres tall is sure to put a tingle in your spine.
HOT tip: This is one of only three bridge climb activities in the entire world, with the other two located in Sydney and Auckland. Don't feel like walking down? You can abseil!
5. Explore Brisbane's local islands
Brisbane isn't just great for the mainland attractions, but for its nearby islands as well. Moreton and North Stradbroke are both close by, and you can easily ferry to each.
HOT tip: Moreton is the third-largest sand island in the world, and is lavished with gorgeous lakes and rolling sand dunes. Stradbroke, on the other hand, offers you lovely cafes, galleries and coastal walks, not to mention numerous aquatic activities such as whale watching.
