Things To Do in Brisbane

Brisbane’s events calendar is always jam-packed with things to do:

  • Art exhibitions at the Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art
  • Fashion shows
  • Fascinating displays at the Museum of Brisbane’s Easton Pearson Archive
  • Big footy games at the Suncorp Stadium
  • Cricket at the Gabba
  • The annual Brisbane International

There is something for everyone in Brisbane, nature enthusiasts will love:

  • Tours along the Brisbane River – see the multi-million dollar villas at Norman Park, the beautiful Newstead House – the city’s oldest surviving residence, the South Bank Parklands and much more.
  • The Streets Beach – the only inner-city man-made beach in the country – a must-visit while in Brisbane for its spectacular lagoon and white sand

Brisbane Cruise Terminals

The port of Brisbane is located on Fisherman Island on the Brisbane River. It is currently home to two cruise terminals:

  • One at the Portside Wharf at Hamilton that only accepts smaller cruise ships
  • Another on Fisherman Island that will let big (over 270m long) ships berth

However, with ships constantly growing in size and the number of cruises form Brisbane increasing every year, there is clear need for expansion. 2018 has seen the start of the new Luggage Point Cruise Terminal construction. The new $177 million facility will be able to welcome even the biggest mega-ships in the world. This project will:

  • Create thousands of jobs for the locals
  • Help the local tourism industry develop
  • Open new opportunities for cruises from Brisbane

The Best Time to Visit Brisbane

The capital of the Sunshine State – Brisbane is blessed with a beautiful subtropical climate and even though it can get down to as low as 11°C in the winter, it is still mild and dry.

The best time to visit would, generally speaking, be April and May:

  • The sun is shining
  • The amount of rainfall is very low

However, that is also the time to beware of the school holiday crowds.
