Tourism Information

Local Attractions

Dining

Food and drink is something taken very seriously in Brisbane – whether it’s a steak at a pub, a good coffee or a five-star degustation. The pleasant outdoor climate and abundance of fresh produce means that people often eat al fresco-style, and menus typically feature delicious locally sourced ingredients. From Moreton Bay prawns to greens from the Lockyer Valley, you’ll discover Queensland’s largest collection of Good Food Guide-awarded restaurants, cafes and bars in the region.

Culture

A relaxed casual river city, Brisbane is unpretentious and has an easy-going attitude. Its sub-tropical climate presents a warm and welcoming destination with an extensive range of pre and post-touring opportunities. A quarter of Brisbane’s residents were born overseas, with more than 17 per cent of households speaking a language other than English at home. A truly multicultural venue.

Entertainment

Brisbane is a hotbed of cultural and creative offerings, festivals and events. Exclusive blockbuster exhibitions and inspiring theatre productions sit alongside independent and emerging local performances, outdoor cinema, street art and intimate gallery and performance spaces. Lovers of comedy, musicals, live theatre and dance head to the Brisbane Powerhouse and QPAC. The Queensland Museum and QAGOMA offer free entry to permanent exhibitions.

Parks & Wildlife

Blessed with parks and pristine natural places, Brisbane always feels like a green city. Right in the heart of The City is Roma Street Parkland and the City Botanic Gardens. Then there’s the extensive South Bank Parklands – with its famous beach, free barbecues, riverside dining and cultural precinct. Just 10 minutes out of Brisbane City you’ll discover the bush trails of Mt Coot-tha. It’s easy to spend a day on nearby Moreton Bay, home to some of the world’s largest sand islands, or to escape to the heritage-listed forests of the Scenic Rim.
