    Fun day and staff very knowledgeable so ask away anything is not a problem. Koalas well cared for so what’s not to like. Not often you can this close to the koalas so give it a go.

    Nice place for lazy afternoon. Everything you need is well in reach. Superb for families with small children. We rented bikes and drove next to the river.

    It was a wonderful experience watching the sunrise from here. It is beautiful to see the sun come up and spread light. Afterwards we had great time enjoying coffee at the cafe. It was a perfect start to a great day.

    Beautiful garden and excellent customer service. We spent an excellent and enjoable day wandering around this garden. There are various sections, each focussing on a specific theme, e.g. tropical, australian bush etc.

    Customer service reps have been wonderful, knowledgeable and patient in explaining the various sights and what to do.
    The onsite restaurant is very slow in serving on the day we visited. All in all, an enjoyable and fun outing.

    Tip: Best to visit early as parking in the garden is limited

    Why get involved on the streets when you can go by boat? Great way to see parts of Brisbane on a friendly, clean and efficient service.
    Plan your route and you can hop on and off, getting to those places you want to visit.
    We were here for 4 days and made the most of the service

    This is an excellent free city ferry service.

    Boats are smaller than their usual ferries.

    I used the service one way to go from Riverside to Howard Smith Wharves to enjoy a few drinks at this atmospheric location full of bars and restaurants.

    As the title suggests, there are some beautiful water features to look at. There were plenty of amenities and shady spots to sit and relax, as well as the convenience of a short walk to Roma St train station.

    For me this was actually my favorite attraction in all of Brisbane. A huge variety of food vendors with cuisine from all over the world plus multiple stages with musical entertainment. I really enjoyed my time here.

    Very Well maintained gardens, several precints in the one area, bordering the Brisbane River and edge of the city. The Duck pond is quite large with plenty of turtles and Lizards roaming its edge.
    Nice little markets on Sundays, inside the city gates end - perfect for a breakfast or lunch picnic date, a range of food stalls, coffee and juice tents and a Gin tasting tent to cap it off.
    There is also a proud little display of 'dinner plate' size Hibiscus flower's, over near the rivers edge,towards the children's adventure playground.

    THe whole river is lined with walk, cycle and scooter lanes. I hired a scooter and went for miles and miles checking out the sights. This is a great way to explore Bribsnae. The scooters can also be used in the CBD and inner city suburbs. Just drop the scooter anywhere when you are done. Easy as.

    A pivotal point to place yourself after exploring the city, or taking in a walk or run. Kangaroo Point is one of the best spots to ‘drink it all in’ and the view of Brisbane at night is quite spectacular. My daughter and I enjoy any time spent here, often after a day of adventure, travel and fun. Whether it be to dangle our legs over the wall, to share a story, or simply absorb the view, this location is great place of beauty and reflection. What you capture through the lens will be reward of another special day spent in a prominent place and with those who you love 💜 red 🌹

    Wonderfully curated art show with works from Philippines, Thailand, Korea . Well explained and a good lay out. Very good cafe with outside seating under a large shade tree. Free entry with vaccination proof.

    Unfortunately alot of levels and displays closed. Those that were open were very interesting and well presented. The animals that were taxidermy were absolutely brilliant and presented so realistic. Very clean and very welcoming staff.

    Brisbane had been flooded so marks were clearly seen where the water levels had been and people still cleaning up. Wasn't as bad as I expected.

    eToro..Wallabies v Springboks & All Blacks v Argentina. It’s a great stadium, well planned and laid out. Clean loos and general areas and staff cleaning handrails etc. no wine choice.. my only complaint was getting in! 35-40,000 fans and no thought to queuing ..lots of pushing and shoving and felt really concerned for those with kids. No 1.5 m distancing but all with masks. Once inside masks off for the majority. fed up with old fellas falling on top of me, drunk or sober and overweight fellas taking half of my $185 seat. I’d get there earlier in future and get an end seat.

    Go Wallabies..fantastic match.
