Top Summer Experiences in Brisbane - Say hello to the sunny side of life!

Brisbane has a number of interesting and unique experiences to try out. If you are dropping by to the city during summer, read on as we list the must try experiences!


Dive into the best of Australian dishes at Great Australian Bites

A food festival to celebrate Australia Day, Great Australian Bites is a four day festival that houses an array of cuisines from many restaurants – basically any foodie's dream. The food festival takes place at South Bank Parkland's River Quay which serves as a beautiful backdrop. Picnic baskets and drinks are also available while live entertainment is always on to keep up the atmosphere. The excellent location is also great for watching the electrifying Australia Day fireworks. All in all, there is no better way to start off the long weekend than dropping by here. The central location makes it easy to access from Bowen Hills hotels and other places.


Watch a cricket match at the Gabba

While the Allan Border Field is considered the best grounds in the city, nothing gets more iconic than the Gabba. With a seating capacity of forty two thousand, the atmosphere inside is pulsating, to say the least. If there is a match going on at the Gabba during your stay, you should definitely make the memorable visit here, if you are cricket fan of course! If you like rugby, pop into Suncorp Stadium and watch Queensland Reds, one of the tougher rugby teams in the Super Rugby championship


Visit the Gallery of Modern Art

Home to an ever expanding collection of Eastern arts, the Gallery of Modern Art is widely considered one of the best art galleries in the world. The ambience of the gallery simply grows on you while the eye catching architecture is sure to draw a few gasps. There is no entrance fee, so you can just drop by and enjoy the air conditioning during the hot summer days! However, when it comes to the foreign exhibits, tickets are needed to be bought.


St Jerome's Laneway Festival

The decade old music festival has rapidly risen to stardom and is now unquestionably the best music festival in the country. Promoters Jerome Borazio and Danny Rogers' have done the impossible and found the right medium between great atmosphere and independent music – the two main ingredients for a great music festival. The festival tours many cities but the Brisbane show is the highlight, partly in thanks to the spacious location at RNA Showgrounds.


Cool off the summer climate

If the summer weather gets the better of you, dip into the Spring Hill Baths. These heritage listed baths were constructed back in the eighteenth century and were the first of its kind in the city. Now they emit a centuries-old vibe and is highly recommended to any visitor to Brisbane. A short distance from hotels such as Oaks Mews, getting here is quite easy. Should you still feel unsure, just ask any local and they can point out the way.
