Best time to visit Brisbane

Anytime is a great time to visit Brisbane; the Sunshine State lives up to its name with consistent blue skies and fine weather most of the year. South Bank is the perfect place to start your exploration of Brisbane. It's Brisbane's famous inner-city artificial beach and is a mecca for children of any age. There are loads of green spaces, plenty of sand and swimming areas as well as an all year round special events program. Take a walk in the shade of the Brisbane Botanical Gardens, close to the city side of the river.

Driving tips in Brisbane

It would be difficult to find Brisbane's equal in terms of lifestyle and climate. Located in the Sunshine State, Brisbane is halfway between two of the best beaches in the country. With the famous Gold Coast to the south and the pristine  Sunshine Coast to the north, visitors will have plenty of choices for exploring beyond the city limits.

Brisbane is our home town, and we are full of suggestions for a road trip. If you're after suggestions for how to spend your time here in Brisvegas, a drive up to Mt Cootha to the lookout provides a gorgeous birds' eye view of the river city. Alternatively, simply hop on a City Cat and explore the region by water.

Tour our home town at your own pace

Leave your hire car at your accommodation when you explore the city itself. The Loop downtown service is a CBD service which will get you from one end of town to the other. It runs Monday to Friday every ten minutes so you can simply hop on at the red bus stops. The Spring Hill loop runs between 8am-6pm Monday to Friday with twelve stops in the CBD and Spring Hill. All children under four travel free on Brisbane's public transport system. There is also a new service that links the city to the airport which means you can skip the city traffic when heading to or from your flight. 

Gas up the tank and take a road trip 

Glasshouse Mountains, Sunshine Coast BrisbaneJust an hour's drive north-west of Brisbane you'll find yourself driving along gorgeous, winding mountain roads lined with gum trees and stretches of rain forest. This road is favoured by motorbike riders and people on weekend pleasure drives - and you might see the occasional brave hiker or jogger pushing themselves to the limit. Make no mistake, this is a steep climb at times.

If you're keen to head north on your day trip then the Sunshine Coast and Noosa should be top of your list of priority destinations. The drive will prove picturesque as you discover the Glasshouse Mountains on your left as you pass by pineapple farms on your way to Noosa. The world heritage listed Fraser Island is also a must-do. It is dotted with beautiful fresh-water lakes. 

If you are after a real road-trip, consider the Whitsundays which are some of the most beautiful tropical islands in the world. Located in far north Queensland, the Whitsundays got their name from the history books. Captain James Cook passed through Whitsunday passage on Sunday the fourth of June - which happened to be Whit Sunday, the seventh Sunday after Easter. The Whitsundays are usually accessed from Airlie beach, about a 12 hour drive from Brisbane.

Sample the mouthwatering offerings of Brisbane restaurants

If you are after some stunning dining and want to sample a slice of Australia's history at the same time, then look no further than Brisbane's trendy hot spot, The Barracks, at Petrie Terrace. The Barracks was the original location of Brisbane's first jail but now the historic buildings have been lovingly renovated and won architecture awards. They provide a fantastic backdrop for the casual diner out for a sunny, alfresco experience. There are also plenty of stores and services to keep you occupied for a few hours.
If ultra fine dining is your weakness you'll be pleased to know celebrity chef Matt Moran's celebrated Aria restaurant has opened at Eagle Street Pier. 

This location is also home to Il Centro & Cha Cha Char Restaurants which are the bench mark for smart dining in Brisbane.  If a drive to the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast seems too much you can always enjoy the artificial beaches at South Bank and even check out the museum, art gallery or some plays and stage shows.

If you're in the mood for a serving of culture with a side dish of history then make sure you check out the St Lucia University of Queensland campus. This university has some culinary delights on offer - students favour the popular Pizza Cafe which serves a different pizza for every letter of the alphabet and is made with a fairly healthy pita bread base - but, even better, it has a rich history unique to Brisbane
