The Fun Things You Can Do in Brisbane for Free - Top Free Activities to Enjoy in Brisbane

Tipped to be one of Australia's most popular tourist hotspots Brisbane is a must-visit hotspot for all visitors. Here are some fun and enjoyable free activities to enjoy in Brisbane.


Go on a Heritage Walk

Sign up for a tree tour of the Brisbane City Hall and take a trip back in time to the 1930s. Revered for its captivating architecture, this Gatsby generation building has been restored to perfection and features classic marble stairs and stunning balustrades. Within the confines of the Brisbane City Hall, travellers will also find the iconic Museum of Brisbane where the top floor is accessible for free. One can truly get lost in the ever-changing exhibits on show at this illustrious institution where the legacy of the city is explored in full.


Cruise Around

Head out to the clubhouse of the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron to take a free spin of the city on Wednesday afternoons and explore the breathtaking coastlines of Moreton Bay. Wannabe sea captains should seize this opportunity to spend a day out in the water for free and learn the basics of yachting and rigging in the meantime.


Take a Tour with a Local Volunteer

Tourists who are fans of the New York Greeters will feel right at home with the Brisbane version of the same program. The free of charge walking tour that is lead by volunteers who know the city's best corners and its juiciest secrets are open to all visitors and can be tailored to one's own specific interests including city architecture, public art spaces and World War II landmarks. Visitors based in Oaks Lexicon Apartments and similar bases or hotel apartments in Brisbane can sign up for a tour online or via their accommodation provider.


Take in Some Culture

Art lovers and culture buffs alike can also experience Brisbane's top galleries and art spaces with a trip to the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art, also known as QAGOMA. Housing an impressive collection of more than 16,000 pieces of art, this iconic art hub located on the shores of the Brisbane River is worth a trip even if it's only to witness the beauty of the structure in which the galleries are housed. Certain special exhibits may not be free of charge but the permanent collections are open to visitors for free.


Catch a Movie

Often regarded as the best activity for movie fanatics exploring Brisbane, heading to the Cineplex cinemas is a great way to spend an afternoon or morning catching a Hollywood blockbuster for mere pennies. With branches located at Hawthorne, South Bank, Victoria Point and Balmoral, Tuesdays are the perfect days to hit the movies at these local haunts.


Park It

Constructed on the occasion of the 1988 Expo, South Bank Park is an activity hub like no other in Brisbane. Lined with trees and wide-open spaces, the dance and yoga classes, as well as aqua sports activities available at the venue, make it a favourite hotspot for families and children. Sundays bring live musical acts to the park which is open to all visitors without charge.
