Discover Brisbane, Queensland’s subtropical capital city and the gateway to its many attractions.
Laze in the lush riverside gardens of South Bank, then browse the markets and swim in its lagoon. Bike ride in the City Botanic Gardens and abseil the cliffs of Kangaroo Point. Glide down the river on a majestic paddlesteamer or take a high-speed ferry to vibrant inner-city villages like Bulimba and New Farm.
When culture cravings hit, wander the art galleries and museums, watch a performance by the Queensland Ballet, Opera or Orchestra perform or see cutting-edge theatre in the Powerhouse.
In the boating hub of nearby Moreton Bay and Islands, you can swim, sea kayak, snorkel coral reefs, toboggan down the world’s tallest sand dune, hire a sail boat or tussle with a marlin.
Brisbane is the gateway to Queensland. Drive the Great Sunshine Way to the Gold Coast, Fraser Island and Noosa. Stretch your legs on the Gold Coast Great Hinterland Walk. Or follow the Pacific Coast Touring Route all the way north to Cairns and the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef.
