Top 10 Things to Do in Brisbane

top 10 things to do in Brisbane, Australia


You may have booked a motorhome hire in Brisbane, what next?

Visit Brisbane and you’ll see a vibrant and modern city, with a sunny, sub-tropical climate. With its relaxed yet sophisticated culture, Brisbane is referred to as Australia’s “New World” City. Best of all, the locals are friendly and allow you to see the pretty riverside city.

It’s a great place to spend your days with/without your families and friends. Discover some best restaurant in the City, explore the river, parks, and weekend markets. Experience activities such as kayaking and other outdoor attractions for visitors to enjoy. Here are some things to do when you are in Brisbane.

Botanical Gardens, Brisbane

The City Botanic Gardens, are the original Botanic gardens. These gardens are quite large. They are located beside the Brisbane River and are only about 10mins from the Queen street mall or the Railway Stations. You will find office workers enjoying these peaceful “green” gardens that have lots of open space, a Bamboo Grove, Weeping Fig Avenue, Mangrove Boardwalk, ornamental ponds, sculptures and nice riverside views.

Chinatown, Brisbane

Brisbane’s Chinatown is located in the Fortitude Valley area of the city, about 1km north east of the CBD and city centre.

In truth, Brisbane’s Chinatown consists mainly of one street, Duncan Street, and is tiny compared to some of the sprawling Chinatown’s I have visited in cities such as Sydney, Toronto and Singapore. […]

Mt Cootha Botanical Gardens

We went to the Mt. Coot-tha gardens for another visit, and to take some photo’s. These gardens are large, 52 hectare’s, and they have 20,000 plants ranging from Arid, Tropical, Temperate, Native & Exotic. There is wetlands, and a bamboo grove, lakes and many winding trails, the Rainforest ones amongst the plants with giant leaves being my favorite! […]

City Cat

I’ll assume that, as a tourist, you rank seeing Brisbane at its best as importantly as “just getting there”. For reaching many of the interesting sights, it’s hard to beat the “Citycat” service. The “Citycat” service runs upstream from the city as far as the University of Queensland and downstream as far as the Hamilton Reach, where cruise liners berth. Between those points, many stops have parks or other features of interest, most notably the Southbank and the old Botanic Gardens. […]

Mt Cootha

Mt. Coot-tha, this is where I came for a great view over the capital city of Queensland….Brisbane.
The name ‘Coot-tha’ or ‘Kuta’ was taken from the Aboriginal name for the area which meant ‘honey’ or ‘the place of wild honey’. […]

City Hall, Brisbane

If you have a look above the Portico and Entrance to City Hall, you will see a beautifully sculptured pediment, known as the tympanum. It was carved by noted Brisbane sculptor, Daphne Mayo in the early 1930’s after City Hall was opened. It is considered quite an important Brisbane sculpture.
It depicts “Settlement of Queensland.” […]

Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo

There is a lot of hype surrounding the Zoo and its operations due to the untimely passing of its superstar owner, conservationist and croc hunter, Steve Irwin. Fortunately the Zoo doesn’t disappoint visitors drawn by Steve’s massive appeal with its fantastic furry and reptilian inhabitants. […]

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is approximately a half hour drive from downtown Brisbane and is a great introduction to the famous animals of Australia. While we were there, we were able to see animals like kangaroos, pademelons, kookaburras, dingoes, cassowaries, and of course, plenty of koalas! For an extra fee (I believe it was $15 AUD), you can also hold a koala and have your picture taken with it. I had to do it of course, and it was totally worth it, even though I didn’t like the musky koala smell that clung to my shirt the rest of the day. […]

Roma Street Parklands

The Roma Street railway goods yards were an intrinsic part of Brisbane from the start of the railway system in the 1800s. The sort of scenic wonder all cities need – rusty tracks, grimy storage sheds, equally grimy railway wagons. So, in a city where modernisation is everything, it was only a matter of time before someone felt the need to upgrade the place. That process was started in 2000 and the new parklands opened in 2002. […]

The riverside area to the south from the city is now known as “Southbank”. In former days, it was simply “South Brisbane” and was a sleazy run-down area with rotting old timber wharves, tired looking warehouses, ugly industrial developments, and drunk-infested old pubs. Now it is one of the jewels in Brisbane’s crown. […]
