Brisbane‘s subtropical climate attracts both visitors and locals, offering incredible natural wonders, vibrant culture, and quality shopping – an unforgettable experience awaits them in Brisbane.

Just squint and you might think you were in the Whitsundays instead of at Streets Beach in Brisbane – an idyllic beach adorned with palm trees and an azure water pool.

B Lucky & Sons

B Lucky & Sons is the latest vintage hotspot to grace Fortitude Valley, brought to you by the team behind Holey Moley Indoor Golf Bar and Strike Bowling. Offering cocktail, arcade, and pawn shop services.

From its neon-lit facade and casino-style chandeliers to its cozy booth seating, this bar-meets-arcade is filled with charm. Play classic games such as Mario Kart, Space Invaders and NBA Hoops while sipping drinks from their East meets West menu of punch-bowl cocktails, bubble teas and English pints.

Fun doesn’t stop here though – head next door to Strike Bowling for some ten-pin action! Preload a card at the machine or cash in winnings at the pawn shop to exchange for real prizes like vintage Chanel bags or classic cameras; just remember to pace yourself!

MANIAX

Picnic at New Farm Park

No matter your taste in entertainment – be it history, nature or food – New Farm Park has something for you. The large park features an extensive playground spread around giant fig trees; rose gardens; historical bandstand rotunda popular for wedding photos; as well as riverfront boardwalk.

Weekends at the park feature market stalls, live music performances and events that create an exuberant atmosphere. Nearby you will also find the remarkable Brisbane Powerhouse; an historic structure transformed into an arts centre.

Visit New Farm Park on weekday mornings to avoid crowds. Take advantage of its closeness to the CBD by driving or using public transit (bus or CityCat), or ride your bicycle around its ring road loop and enjoy views from New Farm Park bridge!

Street Art

Discovering Brisbane by exploring its streets is an ideal way to soak in its subtropical charm. From City Hopper buses and riverside bike tracks, to taking your time exploring each sight at your own pace – exploring can be done anytime of the year!

Visit Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for a day of fun and meet some adorable Australian wildlife! Feed kangaroos or pet snakes while gaining insight into this subtropical landscape.

Are you interested in history? Why not explore some of Brisbane’s fascinating museums? Learn about Australia’s cultural heritage at the Queensland Museum or discover art at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art; for something a bit different try taking in a concert at Queensland Performing Arts Centre!

Axe Throwing

Take on your inner lumberjack during this 1.5-hour axe throwing experience! Participants receive expert coaching and training before competing against either friends or the clock in a round-robin challenge with music provided to get in the zone.

Axe throwing does not require tremendous physical strength; rather, the thrower must know how to position their axe head for maximum effect. A loose wrist during a throw may lead to it wobbling while too tight of grip could result in insufficient rotation of the handle.

Axe throwing offers an unforgettable experience perfect for friends or couples seeking something different to do. At our cozy indoor facility with rustic charm, age restrictions and safety guidelines ensure everyone can have a pleasurable and safe experience.
