About Trip
Brisbane, why go
isn’t the Sunshine Coast where you go for a Queensland weekend break?

Queensland’s coast is beach culture, white sandy beaches, even an Island made of the stuff, and then there are lush rainforests merging into coral reefs. On the other hand Brisbane is praised for its proximity to surf and sun destinations such as Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast.

Brisbane has been getting a bad rap as simply a transit place to the Queensland coast. Brisbane should be a must do destination for a weekend or longer. It is full of things to do that are either free, fun and inexpensive or simply amazing. It’s warm tropical climate is a great alternative to a wet cold Melbourne in winter. And it’s got the buzz. and snappy urban soul of Melbourne. To cap it off, Brisbane’s added touch is tropical flair.


Evening arrival

Brisbane’s Friday evening is balmy, you are relaxed, with great food served on outdoor terraces overlooking the river on Southbank. And it does not finish there as you are in for a treat with a regular Friday night music show. Brisbane’s understated festivals are show stoppers and locals do not worry if they missed one, as another is in the works. Try to plan your weekend around Brisbane’s light up the night sky performances, perhaps the best in Australia.
