The capital of the Sunshine State – Brisbane is blessed with beautiful subtropical climate and even though it can get down to as low as 11C degrees in the winter, it is still mild and dry. The best time to visit would, generally speaking be April and May, when the sun is shining and the amount of rainfall is very low. However, that is also the time to beware of the school holiday crowds.
Brisbane’s events calendar is always jam-packed with things to do though, so the city is worth a visit all year round. Numerous art exhibitions at the Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art, fashion shows and fascinating displays at the Museum of Brisbane’s Easton Pearson Archive, big footy games at the Suncorp Stadium, cricket at the Gabba and the annual Brisbane International – these are just a few of the exciting happenings.
There is, of course, plenty more, like the tours along the Brisbane River, showing off the best city views from the water or the stunning beaches, some natural and others – man-made. The Streets Beach – the most famous of the latter, is the only inner-city man-made beach in the country – a must-visit while in Brisbane for its spectacular lagoon and white sand.
Getting on board a paddlewheel riverboat and going on a river cruise from Brisbane is one of the most popular things to do. You will 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 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 and the very simple terminal 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 $158 million facility will be able to welcome even the biggest mega-ships in the world. This new project will not only create thousands of jobs for Brisbanians and help the local tourism industry develop but also open new opportunities for cruises from Brisbane.
