How to get there
There are so many ways to get to Brisbane CBD! If you choose to drive just make sure to book a park before you get there! Otherwise you can use the public buses or the Citycat – Brisbane’s river ferry.
What to do there
There are SO many things to do in Brisbane CBD – but if you’re just spending the day in the city like we did we’d recommend visiting the Roma Street Gardens as one of your stops. These beautiful gardens are a quick walk from King George Square and have great spaces to walk through or have a picnic in. There are some great spaces for the kids with playgrounds and wide open spaces… and LOTS of lizards to chase! We loved our brunch at The Garden Room cafe right on the edge of the gardens and served some great pancakes and coffee!
What would be a trip to the CBD without stopping by the shops? Queen Street Mall is a great shopping street and has a few extra shopping centres off it. It’s also got plenty of places to stop off for a drink or some food.
For dinner we went to Rico Bar and Dining and loved it. Positioned right on the river it had great views! We’d definitely recommend booking a table early to get a table by the window. We’d also recommend the paella! It comes in seafood, meat or veggie and in a serving for two! They also had a great selection of tapas and mains.
How much it costs
Apart from the food our only cost for the day was parking, we recommend checking out Secure Parking and booking through them.
Just a few tips for making your visit to Brisbane CBD even better! Take the time to explore! when you’re there go for a wander down the alleyways along Queen Street Mall and see where it takes you! Don’t forget your sunscreen!
Don’t forget to have fun!
