Go Underground to Catch a Show

The Underground Opera Company offer a number of performances within the refurbished confines of what used to be the Spring Hill Reservoirs. The reservoirs constructed between 1871 and 1882 consist of large underground caverns which once held the city's main water supply. Since it was closed down in 1962, the place has been put to use once more with small theatrical groups making ample use of the excellent acoustics and mystical environs to thrill audiences. Easy to access from a hotel accommodation Brisbane CBD has to offer, including options such as Oaks Festival Towers, this is one unique experience you won't want to miss.

Walk to King Island

Mind you keep a lookout and time your visit and departure before high-tide causes the sandbar to disappear.
