Brisbane 10 free things to do

Brisbane is a really cool city offering great weather when the rest of the country is cold but Australia has become so expensive so here are some things you can do for free to entertain yourself when there.

Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and has the 3rd biggest population in Australia. It is a global city since 2008 and has hosted many world events. Its built around the Brisbane river and got its name from a Scottish man, Sir Thomas Brisbane.

Brisbane has sub tropical climate.

Long hot summers and warm winters and when it hails, holy cow get out of the way.

Brisbane has great

museums and art galleries and if its surf your after, the sunshine coast is about one hour north or head one hour south to the Gold coast.

Brisbane’s nightlife has changed so much since the first time I visited in 1992 and each time I’ve returned its bigger and better with some of the best nightlife in the whole of Australia. For an update selection of places to go check out
