With beautiful sunny days year-round, Brisbane’s subtropical climate is perfect for escaping the southern winter and spending some time outdoors.

Brisbane offers an emerging food culture to suit everyone – from New Farm’s cafe culture, to Eat Street Markets, to hatted fine dining restaurants around Brisbane City. For a night out, head to Fortitude Valley for live music and award winning bars and nightclubs. Whatever you fancy, Brisbane is the perfect place for a weekend city-break.
