Your guide to Brisbane
All About Brisbane
Nestled in the southeast corner of Queensland, Brisbane is the state capital and the third most populous city in Australia. A compact, intuitively planned metropolis, the aptly named River City blends year-round blue skies, spectacular natural attractions, beautiful bays, and a world-class alfresco dining scene.
Parklands are one of the city’s key features — its extensive and ever-expanding green network covers more than 6,000 hectares. A leisurely stroll along Weeping Fig Avenue takes you to the original riverside City Botanic Gardens, home to one-of-a-kind ornamental ponds and tranquil bamboo groves. Music is a big part of life here, with internationally-acclaimed acts from country stars to indie bands all having started out in Brisbane’s small venues. There’s a cluster of hotspots to take in a gig or two a few streets north of Story Bridge. Sleek glass and smooth concrete house the city’s Gallery of Modern Art, while the Powerhouse offers theatre, comedy, and more in a formerly disused power station.
How do I get around Brisbane?
Brisbane Airport (BNE) is the main air transportation hub for both the state capital itself and the wider South East Queensland region. The journey from the terminal to the city averages 20 minutes. The Airtrain, which runs directly from the terminal building, is one of the fastest ways to reach the city centre, with services running every 15 minutes during peak times. You’ll also find a number of door-to-door shuttle bus transfer services available to transport you to your Brisbane holiday apartment. Once you’re in the city itself, walking is a great way to explore, and a network of buses, trains, and ferries is available alongside plenty of cycling paths.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Brisbane?
Brisbane boasts a subtropical climate with over 280 days of sunshine per year. If you’re planning an active break or looking to head deeper into Queensland, the height of summer (December through February) could be uncomfortable, especially if you’re not used to the strong Australian sun. This season is also when the city experiences its highest levels of rainfall, which can be heavy and involve thunderstorms. Spring (September through November) and autumn (March through May) tend to be milder, with pleasant temperatures making outdoor activities a more attractive proposition. Winter (June through August) tends to bring crisp, dry days with cool temperatures, especially at night, so extra layers are recommended. One of the city’s major events is the Brisbane Festival, which brings together music, theatre, and dance at a multitude of venues and spectacular fireworks displays above the river over three weeks in September.
What are the top things to do in Brisbane?
Brisbane City Markets
Brisbane has its fair share of top-rated eateries, but the best place to find produce for your own culinary creations is the Brisbane City Markets. They pop up in Reddacliff Place every Wednesday and Cathedral Square every Thursday, where you can find out more about local ingredients directly from farmers and artisan producers.
At the end of September, the Riverfire Festival lights up the night sky with fireworks against the iconic backdrop of this heritage-listed bridge. Adventurous visitors can even climb to the top to get a mesmerising 360-degree view of the River City and Kangaroo Point. Underneath the steel frame, you’ll find warehouses-turned-beer halls and open-air cafes by the water.
The view from the river
Knockout views of the glittering city skyline are guaranteed from the Brisbane River, whether you’re enjoying a morning paddle, timing your crossing for sunset, or indulging in one of the organised dinner cruises on offer. Most boats for the latter leave Eagle Street Pier in the early evening and include live onboard entertainment to accompany breathtaking vistas.
