Travel Guide to Brisbane
When in Brisbane, don’t forget to…
Visit the Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA). Queensland's premier visual arts destination features Australian and international exhibitions. Hire a picnic rug from the gallery, grab a sandwich or two from the cafe and enjoy the sculpture gardens and view of the Brisbane River view.
Take a trip up to Mt Coot-tha Lookout to enjoy expansive views over the city. Head up at sunrise for some quiet reflection, or join the locals and travellers at its cafe later in the day for breakfast or a sunset dinner.
Sign up for a brewery tour. The home of Queensland’s famous XXXX beer hosts informative tours taking beer lovers through the finer points of the brewing process. Book a Friday afternoon tour to get the weekend started, and enjoy live music from midday.
See the mighty Brisbane River from a different angle. Try stand-up paddling, abseiling, kayaking and rock climbing with instructors from the Riverlife Adventure Centre. Try a night kayak or paddle session to enjoy the glittering city lights.
Cuddle a koala at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. The world's largest koala sanctuary, it houses over 130 koalas, as well as dingoes, kangaroos and other Australian wildlife. Go on a behind the scenes tour to visit the animals before the zoo opens – with lots of up close and personal photo opportunities.
