What To Do

I’ve found that you discover the beauty of a city while walking and Brisbane is no exception. Walk along the river, take the City CATs out to the suburbs and enjoy the Parks. You may also clim the Brisbane Story Bridge, not my thing, but the views are pretty amazing from the photos I’ve seen. There’s also Hot Air ballooning, whale watching and of course the beach. So you have no shortage of things to do. Of course you can also do nothing and just enjoy the area as well.
