The Essential Guide: 24 Hours In Brisbane

The Essential Guide: 24 Hours In Brisbane

Brisbane may only be the third biggest city in Australia, but it doesn’t make it less spectacular. If you’ve got 24 hours to visit this city, we’ve packed in the best way to make the most of your time – but believe us, you’ll want to stay longer!

South Bank

Start the morning with a stroll through the city to the river, where you’ll find much to do – from man made beaches, swimming pools and rivers alike, there’s everything the coast can offer, right there in the middle of the city. While you’re down there, pop into one of the many riverside bars/restaurants – We recommend the Brisbane social club, for local food and of course, a tipple or two!

Botanical Gardens

A riverside oasis that’s reachable by foot (we recommend walking everywhere – you’ve got to experience the whole city), Brisbane city’s botanical gardens is only a short distance and consists of 49 acres of true Australian shrubbery. From cycads to palms, it’s a tranquil haven which can uplift any a mood.

Story Bridge

An iconic part of Brisbane, walk/drive or even climb Story bridge to experience views city wide, connecting two parts of the city, Kangaroo Point and Fortitude Valley. The bridge has been a big feature of Brisbane since being opened in 1940 and provides spectacular panoramic views both day and night.

Howard Smith Wharf

Having only opened in November 2018, Howard Smith Wharf is one of the latest, but essentially one of the most ‘hidden gems’ for viewing points of the city. Located just down the cliffs from Story Bridge (there’s glass lifts to see the city as you drift down) Howard smith Wharf is an idyllic way to see the city and enjoy high quality restaurants of the area. We recommend heading into Felcons Brewing Co for a on-site brewed local beer.

Kurilpa Bridge

And after a day of exploring, hop on the complimentary boat ride back to the central business district on the North Quay, to experience the lights of Kurilpa Bridge at night – what an experience! Linking you over to the Brisbane Art Gallery, it’s well worth crossing the water for. Grabbing a cocktail while you’re out, you’ll be eager for the sun to rise again in Brisbane to see what more of the day you can find.
