6. Reap the benefits of your student card at the movies
One of the many sweet deals of being a student in Brisbane is you get some really good discounts at the cinemas, so make sure you keep your student card handy. Every Monday, students can see all the biggest blockbusters for just $8 at Event Cinemas. Cineplex offers deals as low as $6.50! With your student card, you can also enjoy the latest arthouse movies in town in boutique venues like New Farm Cinema and Elizabeth Picture Theatre for $12. Save some money for your popcorn!
7. Get bare(foot) and bowl
Commonly left to the Zimmer-frame-toting knit-clad generation, lawn bowls is a classic Australian sport that’s recently been adopted by the younger crew. Strip off those thongs, crack open the beers (or whatever’s cold) and have a roll by the river at the likes of the Merthyr Bowls Club or New Farm Bowls Club in New Farm, Norman Park Bowls Club in Norman Park or Booroodabin Community and Recreation Club in Newstead, to name a few.
