Brisbane is a large but friendly city with plenty to do and see. The wonderful sub-tropical climate really encourages you to get out and do things, so here’s your list.

Start with the Brisbane River which winds its way right through the city twisting and turning through city and suburban areas. Use your WiFi to access timetable information and hop onto a Brisbane City Council CityCat ferry service. You can also download an interactive online city tour for your smart phone.

Still on the river, take a walk along the extensive network of walks and boardwalks which follow the river banks. On the south bank you can walk from the West End ferry terminal at Orleigh Park to Dockside at Kangaroo Point, and on the other side of the river, you can walk from University of Queensland Campus at St. Lucia to Teneriffe. 

Check out the latest exhibitions at Queensland Cultural Centre Art Gallery & Goma at South Bank. The blockbuster events often have admission fees but large parts of the galleries are free and open to the public. Don’t miss the Queensland Museum at the same location. Relax afterwards in the gardens of South Bank Parklands, where there is a beach-like swimming pool with life guards on duty.
