If you’re visiting Brisbane and looking to truly experience the city, here are a few things to include in your itinerary that will make for an unforgettable holiday.
Visit the Botanic Gardens and Museum at City Hall
What is a tour to Brisbane without a breath of fresh air at its Botanic Gardens? You can find one of the gardens by the edge of the river in the CBD; the other is at Mt Cootha, only 15 minutes away, and features a Japanese Garden and Bonsai House to embrace the Zen. Also, visit the Museum of Brisbane at City Hall, where you can enjoy a free tour and ride up to the Clock Tower.
Enjoy Captivating City Views from Your Apartment
The city views are breathtaking, to say the least, and are best enjoyed on a stay at hotel apartments in Brisbane located between the CBD and Fortitude Valley. Such centrally located properties include the likes of Oaks Brisbane Lexicon Suites that feature apartments with private balconies and vistas of the city when it comes to life in the morning and transforms at night!
Sip Some Wine or Cocktails on a Night Out
Why not sample some of the finest grape wines in Australia at Brisbane’s first inner-city winery since the 1800s? Head to City Winery Brisbane that’s billed as a ‘working micro-winery’ where you can treat yourself to some open flame cooked dishes for lunch or dinner too. If you’re looking to enjoy cocktails and music, head to the city’s underground bars and pubs for nightlife you will never forget.
Any day is a good day to do some shopping while exploring all corners of the city. The Queen St Mall features high-end labels, while Edward Street has all sorts of unique clothing on offer too. Little Collins St will give you access to some luxury shopping with brands like Cartier, Hermes and Omega. While you’re at it, you can also find some lovely restaurants and bakeries for a quick snack!
