Brisbane Holidays

For shopping, the Queen Street Mall is  in the central business district, and James Street in Fortitude Valley has restaurants and cafes. Further upriver, the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary offers visitors the chance to hold koalas and hand-feed kangaroos. Out in Moreton Bay, North Stradbroke Island is home to an Aboriginal settlement, a former convict station and shipwrecks.
Brisbane is home to a number of restaurants and cafés at which chefs emphasise local Queensland produce. In the city centre, multi-award-winning Allium serves sophisticated and exciting food through its ever-evolving menu. Urbane is another popular choice for its "omnivore" and "herbivore" set menus with matching wines. At breakfast, Gauge offers fresh, healthy food with many ingredients made in-house, while Gerard's Bistro draws inspiration from global flavours. Enjoy cocktails at rooftop bars Up on Constance and Eleven in Fortitude Valley, or choose from more than 400 whiskies at Cobbler in West End.
Brisbane's coastline is dotted with idyllic islands. Moreton Island, just a 70-minute ferry ride from Brisbane, is the third largest sand island in the world. Most of the island is national park, creating a blissful paradise of sandy beaches, bush and lagoons. The island is also home to the Tangalooma Wrecks, popular for diving and snorkelling. North Stradbroke Island is just a 40-minute ferry ride from the coast. There are three villages on the island, fringed by magnificent surf beaches and migrating whales between June and October. Join Straddie Adventures to discover the island's adventure with a cultural twist. Try kayaking or sandboarding through the incredible landscape as Traditional Owners of Quandamooka share their culture.
