Fun Things to Do in Brisbane

The Brisbane area is home to several of Australia’s biggest draws. Like what, you ask? Only the Australia Zoo and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the world’s first and biggest of its kind. Day trips to the Australia Zoo, 75km north of the city, are always a top option. Befriend wombats and kangaroos, climb through a three-storey treehouse, and watch unique wildlife shows. For another animal-themed day, stop at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, another of the most popular places to visit in Brisbane. You’ll have photos of yourself hand-feeding emus and petting cute koalas to add to your holiday scrapbook.

Don’t even want to leave city limits? You don’t have to! Grab a ticket to a hop-on/hop-off bus tour and see the sights at your own pace. Head to the CBD and iconic Post Office Square, where skyscrapers are your backdrop. Make a stop at Anzac Square, then pop over to the South Bank for a spin on the Ferris wheel. Grab a bite in Chinatown or refuel at a café on Park Road. Better yet, enjoy a dinner cruise along the Brisbane River, complete with live music, and take in famous landmarks like Story Bridge and Brisbane Botanic Gardens from a new vantage point. You’re sure to see some things you’ll want to explore further when you return to land.
