Snuggled up against the Brisbane River, this vibrant, cultural city oozes energetic appeal with a booming arts scene and a whole host of attractions to keep you busy. Throughout town, side alleys are lined with independent galleries, trendy coffee houses, and local restaurants serving all manner of international and native fare.
Elsewhere, parks stretch out, offering a green escape from the bustle of the city centre. Great boulevards are lined with historic architecture, showcasing the fascinating past of Brisbane, while lively nightclubs proffer a more contemporary glance into Brisbane’s growing hedonistic lifestyle.
When the weather is nice, locals and visitors head to the parks, or jog, cycle, and kayak along the Brisbane River, a scene that adds a peaceful vibe to the city’s landscape. For duller days, there are quirky bookshops and underground gig halls to explore, where you can peel back the layers and learn more about the laidback city life.
