In Brisbane, you don’t even have to leave the city to enjoy the sand and sea. Streets Beach, located in Brisbane’s lifestyle suburb of South Bank, is Australia’s only inner-city, man-made beach. Enjoy the view overlooking the skyline before taking a dip in the sparkling lagoon, which is surrounded by white sand and tropical greenery. South Bank is home to some of Brisbane’s most famous tourist attractions. Visitors can keep busy with an array of activities and sites to see like riding The Wheel of Brisbane. In addition South Bank is Brisbane’s cultural epicentre with a thriving precinct of dedicated, world-class theatre, arts and educational institutions including the Brisbane Museum and Queensland Performing Arts Centre showcasing world class musicals.
For all the shopaholics Queen Street Mall is a shopping and lifestyle precinct located in the heart of Brisbane City. Home to Queensland’s largest selection of fashion, along the open-air pedestrian mall you can shop an unrivalled mix of more than 700 stores. Queen Street Mall has long been considered Brisbane’s city heart – a place to meet up with friends and family, and to seek entertainment and fun. Bowling, laser tag, an escape room and karaoke – you can do them all at the top level of the Wintergarden centre off Queen Street Mall. There’s a bar for snacks too. Entertainment, sorted. Let your family’s competitive side loose and see who can putt their way to victory at Australia’s craziest and most unique mini-golf course.
