A great way to cover as much ground as possible is to hire a bicycle through Brisbane’s CityCycle bike, in which you can rent a bike from one of 100-plus locations throughout the city. Once you’ve got your set of wheels, Forbes Travel Guide editors suggest you head to the trendy inner city suburbs Fortitude Valley or New Farm to grab breakfast at one of the many popular cafés perfect for people-watching. Spend the morning browsing the boutiques of up-and-coming designers before jumping back on your bike to head over to South Bank. Have a wander through the Parklands and, if it’s the weekend, browse the arts and crafts at the South Bank Lifestyle Market or grab a bite to eat at one of many nearby cafés and restaurants. While away your afternoon at the South Bank Cultural Centre, where you’ll find the Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Museum and Queensland Performing Arts Centre. Once the sun goes down, head back to Fortitude Valley to dance the night away at one of the suburb’s numerous clubs and bars.
