Things to do in Brisbane

The capital of Australia is also the island’s third most populous city. The metropolitan district alone has 2.3 million people. At times referred to as Booming Brisbane, the area is an energetic river side city with a classy arts scene, a vibrant nightlife, and restaurants and coffee houses that can’t help but be famously blogged about.

The residents here are called Brisbanites, and when the weather is great you can see them out and about jogging, swimming, cycling, etc. Clearly there are a lot of things to do in Brisbane. It is believed that the Brisbane River is one influential aspect of the place as when it was flooded from 2011 to 2013 it shook so many people, and is also what gives Brisbane its edge.


The organic convolutions of the city carve it into a patchwork of urban villages; each of these has a distinct style as well as a one of a kind topography. The Bohemian West End, the hip Paddington Hilltop, and the exclusive Peninsular Farm are some of the prime examples. With so many things to do in Brisbane, visitors will be moving from village to village and absorb the versatile, and eccentric capital.
