Everything One Must Do in Brisbane - Top Tourist Activities in Brisbane

Tipped to be one of Australia's top holiday hotspots, Brisbane offers visitors a wealth of new experiences. Here are some of the best things to do during a getaway in the city.

Head to this world-renowned sanctuary which has seen the likes of Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj grace its grounds and spend some quality time with the world's cutest marsupials. As the main reason, most nature lovers head to Brisbane in the first place, the leafy and spacious confines of the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary provide the perfect home of Australia's best-loved animals.

Shop Down James Street

Often compared to London's Bond Street or New York's Fifth Avenue, James Street is the trendiest shopping street in Brisbane. Queensland's best fashion labels and internationally renowned brands are available down this exclusive part of the city. Even if one cannot afford to shop in these high-end retail outlets, popping by St Barts and Aje is a must for all travellers.
