Top Things to Do in Brisbane

Queensland's capital is brimming with fun things to do and see. Take advantage of its location alongside picturesque Brisbane River and go on a river cruise, or enjoy the riparian views from the beloved City Botanic Gardens. For a unique viewing experience, ride the Wheel of Brisbane and see the city like never before or brave a climb on the iconic Story Bridge.

If you love culture, Brisbane has plenty to keep you entertained, with live performances at Queensland Performing Arts Centre and intriguing artworks at the Gallery of Modern Art. To take in a bit of history, the astounding vessels at the Maritime Museum won't disappoint, while aspiring scientists will be right at home at the Queensland Museum & Sciencentre. 

In the mood for an adventure? Take a trip to Mt Coot-tha and view the city from the famous Brisbane Lookout, indulge in a wine-tasting tour with the Vino Bus or take to the skies with S&S Aviation and enjoy spectacular views all around Queensland. For a quieter but equally memorable day out, explore the lush tropical rainforests of Roma Street Parkland.

And when hunger hits, don't forget to check out the myriad of dining options available at Eagle Street Pier, guaranteed to satisfy every craving.
