If you love the outdoors and adventure, then you’ll love Brisbane. It’s a friendly city with great weather – so it’s the perfect place to do a range of activities such as sailing, bushwalking, river cruising, skydiving and much more. Plus it’s only a short journey away from Queensland’s hinterland region and some of Australia’s most famous coastlines. Brisbane is also a very cosmopolitan city, with fantastic alfresco dining (and some of the most deliciously fresh seafood), great shopping and a lively nightlife. It’s a flashy place but ever so down-to-earth, which is an intriguing combination and the locals will make you feel right at home in this sunny destination.
From mystical waterfalls to tranquil lakes, you’ll love a cheeky paddle at these watering holes.
Forget fairy tales, real life is where it’s at with these swoon-worthy sites on the agenda.
Accessible only by boat or strenuous hike, these hostels fall far beyond the typical tourist's radar.
