Public Transport in Brisbane

Buses, trains, and CityCat ferries make up Brisbane's super smooth public transport system. Purchase a reloadable, all-access “go card” to see this vibrant city from all angles at an affordable price. Spend a day on the river. You can hop off the ferry as much as you like to explore and discover all of the city's hidden pockets.

Bicycling in Brisbane

Hire a bike and enjoy the ride! Brisbane's streets are made for cyclists. They're flat, safe, and easy to navigate. The city bikes are also cheap to hire, and convenient to park when you've found a spot to explore further on foot. Ride along the river's blue cycle paths for one of the best scenic routes in town.

Walking in Brisbane

It's hard to get lost in Brisbane. The city streets have been neatly arranged in a grid network along the river, which is never too far from any central location. Get to know the city on foot and you'll stumble upon hidden wonders. Charming corner cafes, streets filled with wall art, and quirky boutiques are all off the typical tourist track.

Car rental in Brisbane

An excellent public transport system means car rental isn't essential if you're staying in the city. If you have time though, take a trip out of town. Brisbane is surrounded by glorious coastline, and the scenic drives are unforgettable. The city's road signs are comprehensive, parking is clearly designated, and major rental operators have offices all around the city.

Visit Brisbane Southbank Parklands

Spend an unforgettable day floating in the sparkling pools and golden beaches of this forty-acre city oasis. Wander through walkways draped in bougainvillea, dine al fresco at one of the parkland's fabulous cafes, and ride the Wheel of Brisbane for a city view. Markets are held most days with food, jewellery, crafts, and street music.
Southbank Parklands is within walking distance of South Bank Railway Station.

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

These beautiful grounds are home to the largest population of Koalas in the world! They share it with a huge variety of indigenous animals, like kangaroos and wallabies. You might even bump into a Tasmanian devil! Get hands-on with the animals with Koala cuddles and Kangaroo feeding. A great family day out with lots of laughter and smiles guaranteed.

Brisbane Botanic Gardens and Mt Coot-tha

These gorgeous gardens are fifteen minutes away and free to enter. They offer a fun, easy, and affordable family day out. Stroll through an incredible variety of ecosystems and birdlife, through rainforests and low deserts, stopping to marvel at the spectacular view from Mt. Coot-tha. Take a picnic or grab a bite at the cafe, where they play live music on Sundays.

Riverlife Adventure Centre

Paddle boarding, kayaking, rock climbing, and abseiling all in one day! Or, if you're feeling a little less adventurous, spin around the city on rollerblades. You can even paddle board at night, taking in the city lights, followed up by a hearty feed of beer and prawns. This is an active day on land and river, and great fun if you're feeling energetic.

DAY 1: Discover the city

Explore the city by foot, starting at Roma Street. Wind your way down to the river, crossing Kurilpa bridge and stopping for lunch in Stanley Street. Continue through the Southbank parklands to Kangaroo Point. The Story Bridge climb is an exciting new adventure in the city. Experience the thrill of the ascent, and then the stunning river views on top. Back on ground, head to the West End for Sicilian-style mussels and a glass of wine at The Red Hen.

DAY 3: Get cultured

Grab brunch at The Gunshop Cafe before wandering along the river to the Gallery of Modern Art. Suitable for all ages and with world-famous pieces, it's a must-see. Next on the culture checklist is the free and interactive Queensland Museum. Take a break from the indoors at Southbank parklands with a swim at the beach before moving on to the Maritime Museum around the corner. End the day with a sunset drink at Customs House, a short CityCat trip away.

DAY 2: Walk with the animals

Get to the Cultural Centre Pontoon and jump onboard the Mirimar Boat Cruise departing for Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary at 10am. Spend your morning cuddling Koalas and feeding Kangaroos before heading back to the city by bus. Get off in the CBD and make your way to Paddington. Wander the leafy streets, indulge in some retail therapy, and rest weary legs in quirky cafes. Tonight, head to Fortitude Valley for a night out at some of Brisbane's trendiest bars.

DAY 4: One last hurrah

Spend your last day discovering Brisbane's stunning surroundings with a day cruise to Tangalooma Island. This island paradise is just seventy-five minutes from the city, and has breathtaking stretches of white sands. There are loads of once-in-a-lifetime experiences, like hand-feeding dolphins, whale watching, and exploring beached shipwrecks. Spend the day here and fit in as much as possible! When you're back in Brisbane, finish your break in style at Jade Buddha, toasting the end of your stay with a signature mojito.
