Take a leisurely cruise on the river from South Bank or at Eagle Street Pier and explore Fortitude Valley, home to bars, nightclubs, great restaurants, galleries, cutting-edge retail and live music venues.
If it’s adventure you’re after, head to Kangaroo Point for abseiling, rock-climbing, kayaking the river, roller-blading or cycling. For the ultimate experience, climb the Story Bridge and savour views over the city, hinterland and Moreton Bay.
Just offshore, cruise across pristine Moreton Bay to discover an island paradise where snorkelling sunken wrecks, sand boarding, surfing, fishing, 4WD-tours, kayaking, wildlife spotting and glamping adventures await. Head inland from Brisbane and discover stunning mountain ranges, World Heritage-listed rainforests, fresh produce and authentic farm experiences.
