Brisbane might not be the first destination you think of when considering a holiday to Queensland, but the state’s capital is more than just a busy city.
Amidst the city highrises, this underrated Australian city has secretly been building itself into a cultural hotspot. Its food, music, arts and sports culture is rich and dynamic, and its nightlife is exciting and edgy, making it ideal for anyone from families to friends.
Nothing is ever too far in Brisbane and with the pace being serenely slower than in Sydney and Melbourne, you can relax, unwind and enjoy it at your ease over a few days.
Got a spare weekend and are wanderlusting? Brisbane has the cure.
