Brisbane is a vibrant, relaxed city soaked in sunshine much of the year. Being a state capital, the Brisbane CBD caters for travellers from around Australia and the world. Close to your Brisbane accommodation, the Brisbane River is the centre of daily life. The river snakes its way toward the coast feeding the numerous parks and green spaces which make Brisbane one of the most biodiverse and ‘green’ cities in Australia. Accordingly, nature's never far away. Step outside your Brisbane accommodation and turn right down Albert St. Within easy walking distance you'll find the Royal Botanic Gardens Brisbane, an ideal place to while away a few sun-soaked hours. On Sundays, the Riverside Markets play host to boutique wares, delicious street food and live music - it's a day out all by itself.
Don't miss out on the top things to see and do nearby your Brisbane CBD hotel accommodation.

Life in the Brisbane CBD centres around the winding course of the Brisbane River. Your Brisbane accommodation lies within easy walking distance of some of the best things to see and do along the riverside. Step out of your hotel residence and turn right onto Mary St. Follow it until it turns into Eagle St and the Eagle St Pier. For the best fresh seafood and fabulous views of Story Bridge, grab a table at George's Paragon - a Queensland dining institution started by George Tassis.
The mall allows you easy access to the City Reach Boardwalk, a picturesque walk along the riverside. Head North towards Story Bridge and underneath the bridge's span, you'll arrive at the Howard Smith Wharves. Relax into some riverside dining, or take part in a craft beer tasting at Felon's Brewing Co.
On the river's Southern side you'll find South Bank, a 17-hectare urban parklands hub for all-day entertainment and outdoor fun. The best two things to do in South Bank are a visit to Streets Beach and Epicurious Garden. Streets Beach's human-made urban beach is an ideal way to catch some beachside sun without having to travel out of the Brisbane CBD. Nearby, Epicurious Garden is a fantastic example of sustainable urban living - an edible garden featuring exotic fruits, herbs, and vegetables of all kinds. No matter your expertise at home gardening, you'll be inspired by the wealth of fresh, growing edible plants on display.
To get to South Bank from your apartment in the Brisbane CBD, head to the Eagle St Pier at the end of Mary St and jump aboard the CityHopper, a free inner city ferry that runs up and down the river daily. Disembark at the South Bank 3 terminal - easy!
Brisbane's food scene bursts with flavour and innovation in equal measure. Being Queensland, you can find laid back al fresco dining throughout the CBD. In 'the valley', head to Bakery Lane for international cuisines including Korean and Nordic-inspired dining, as well as a variety of brunch venues. Likewise, the city centre's laneways including Burnett Lane and Gresham Lane offer casual dining with cuisines to suit every taste and budget.
Closer to home and located just downstairs from your Brisbane apartment accommodation, you'll find Black Fire restaurant. The venue serves up refined Spanish and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine with gusto, expertly prepared by Head Chef Alessandro Spiga and his team.
Perched on the edge of the Brisbane CBD the Fortitude Valley - or 'the Valley' as Brisbanites know it - is where Brisbane goes to blow off steam. It's the heart of counter culture in Brisbane and the centre of the city's nightlife. Jam-packed with small bars, live music venues, a plethora of dining establishments and nightclubs, there's plenty to get stuck into. Looking for live music in Brisbane? The Valley's the place to go. Catch local, national and international acts at iconic venues like the Tivoli, The Zoo and The Foundry.
What makes the Valley so enticing though is that there's just as much to do by day. Coffee lovers will find endless artisanal coffee houses and brunch joints for a leisurely breakfast any day of the week. James St is the place to sate your retail craving for high street fashions while the area's laneways overflow with boutique shops selling everything from fashion to art and tech (and sometimes a combination of all three).
Brisbane may be young at heart, but its history as a city dates back to 1824. A tour through the Brisbane CBD's best museums is highly recommended. Just across the river from your Brisbane hotel you'll find the Museum of Brisbane, featuring a range of historical and artistic exhibitions predominantly referencing the city's history, people and culture. At the Queensland Museum, catch permanent and temporary exhibitions featuring natural history, science, and indigenous history and culture.
