5 Things to Do in Brisbane


A working holiday isn’t just about earning some $$$ – it’s largely about exploring a new place! So to help you out on your travels, we’ve listed the top 5 things you absolutely have to see and do during your stay!

  1. Southbank

Home to Australia’s only inner city beach, Southbank is booming with loads of cafes to choose from and places to sit down and relax in the sun. Have a wander through the paths at night or try out the Wheel of Brisbane for a view like no other.


QAGOMA – or Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art – is a sure fire way to pick up some artistic inspiration. You don’t even have to be an artist to appreciate it though! There are lots of interactive stations and the gallery is always showcasing some of Brisbane’s finest art.

  1. Mt Coot-tha Lookout

Queensland is home to loads of National Parks and walks. Since you’re in the area, why not take a drive to the Mt Coot-tha Lookout? With stunning views, you’ll gain a new perspective of the city.

  1. Brisbane Botanic Gardens

On your way down from the Mt Coot-tha lookout, take a detour through the Brisbane Botanic Gardens – recognised as Queensland’s premier subtropical botanic garden. Open every day of the year.

  1. Story Bridge Adventure Climb

This one’s more for the thrill seekers, or those comfortable with reaching new heights! Scale Brisbane’s story bridge for an unforgettable experience and a unique way to get to know Brisbane.
