Queensland’s capital, Brisbane, is brimming with great ideas for things to do.


SEE Make your way to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary – the world’s largest koala sanctuary. Rated one of the top 10 zoos in the world, the sanctuary is home to more than 130 koalas, as well as platypuses, Tasmanian devils, snakes, crocodiles and other Australian wildlife. Hug a koala and hand-feed kangaroos and lorikeets during your visit.

DO At twilight, hit the Story Bridge Adventure Climb. Take a deep breath and feel the rush as you climb the glorious Story Bridge. One of only three bridge climbs in the world, the climb takes you 80m above sea level for breathtaking 360 degree views across the river city. If you time the 2.5-hour climb to include sunset, you will see Brisbane City turn from day to night.

SHOP If you’re visiting and want to take home a bit of Brisbane, or love to shop local, Brisbane City is the best. Every Friday, Laidley Village Markets host fresh local produce and homemade treats. There are also collectables, arts and crafts, books and lots of other goodies to bring home. For high end shopping, the beautiful Brisbane Arcade is home to a number of local and independent labels, where kaftans from Camilla seem to capture the spirit of the city.

STAY Merging original Art Deco architecture with modern art and avant-garde touches, Ovolo Brisbane brings a new breed of eclectic style to the Queensland capital. Seven room styles range in design from cosy to four-poster bed with free-standing bathtub. And each stay comes with free breakfast, free happy hour and free mini bar snacks and drinks.
