The capital of the “Sunshine State,” Brisbane, could very well be the world’s most laidback city: its residents are friendly and optimistic in a way rarely seen in big city life. But with such a fantastic lifestyle, who can blame them for smiling? Brisbane has a world of experience to offer, from the hustle and bustle of the Central Business District (CBD), you can escape to the creative ambiance of the contemporary arts centre - The Brisbane Powerhouse in New Farm. Perhaps you’d prefer dinner with sights of the city at South Bank? Afterwards, if you’d like a stiff drink, head towards the trendy bars of Fortitude Valley and West End. If you don’t dance the night away, you might be up early enough to watch the sun rise as you kayak on the Brisbane River. Or perhaps you’d prefer relaxing at Australia’s only inner city beach at South Bank. If you still have the energy, you can try rock climbing and take in the views of the Story Bridge and the city skyline from the Kangaroo Point Cliffs. When you’re ready to relax, head down to Woolloongabba to enjoy some of the spectator sports that Queensland is famed for!

One of the many highlights of any visit to Brisbane is experiencing the epicurean delights of the city’s different neighbourhoods. Brisbane is immeasurably proud of its reputation for fine dining, and within a ten minute radius of the town centre you can choose between the kitchens of European, Mediterranean, Asian or contemporary Australian restaurants.
Brisbane is scattered with great pubs, you’ll realise this the moment you learn that most of the “hotels” which you see are actually drinking establishments. Beers are served in pots, schooners, pints and jugs and the beer taps in many bars will be specially chilled, causing the condensation to freeze on the outside. Most hotels are open 10.30 am-3 am, and the traditional “Sunday Session” runs from 11 am to midnight.
Brisbane offers good shopping in fact there are more than 1000 stores, four vibrant precincts and the state’s largest collection of flagship stores. The city also boasts an array of hidden gems around every corner, from minor and fashion-forward stores to stylish arcades and luxury retailers. You will definitely find what you are looking for whether it is a famous international brand or a local designer brand.
