It’s Spring time in Brisbane! What a wonderful time to visit, the beautiful Jacaranda Trees begin to bloom with their picturesque purple flower, the weather is warming up, and it’s a great time to get out on the river!
Below we take a quick look at some of the great spring time activities available for you to enjoy while staying in Brisbane.
Head outside into the fresh air and enjoy Brisbane’s beautiful parks and gardens when they are at their stunning spring best. Local options include:
Anzac Park – 4 minute drive
Brisbane Botanic Gardens – 5 minute drive
The City Botanic Gardens – 7 minute drive
South Bank Parklands – 8 minute drive
Roma Street Parklands – 9 minute drive
All driving times are approximate.
Pack a picnic and enjoy a day outdoors, discover the flora or let the kids loose in the playgrounds. Be sure to keep an eye out for those beautiful Jacaranda trees that usually bloom at this time of year.
The weather is warming up, it’s the perfect time to ‘play’ on or by the River!
Tour company Riverlife offer a wide selection of tours and adventures centred around Brisbane River, some of the options include:
Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Kayaking!
Or if you want to stay dry and just play by the river there’s; Rock Climbing, Abseiling, Segway Tours, Rollerblading, Kick Bikes and more!
For a truly memorable experience why not try a Paddle & Dine experience; you get to kayak on Brisbane River under the starry night sky on an illuminated kayak, followed by either a prawn feast on Friday night or a BBQ on Saturday night.
There are several boating companies that offer cruises along the Brisbane River.
Including River City Cruises and Mirimar. But here we take a quick look at the Kookaburra Showboat Cruises. What takes your fancy?
A lunch cruise? High Tea Cruise? City Lights Dinner Cruise? Or perhaps you’d like to embark on one of their event cruises such as the Riverfire Cruise, Melbourne Cup or Ultimate Christmas Cruise? So many choices!
A beach in the city? You bet! This awesome man-made swimming beach is a unique feature of Brisbane and is Australia’s only beach in the middle of the city! Complete with lifeguards AND a nearby Surf Club! Laze on the sandy shore or take a dip in the water, then head on over to the South Bank Surf Club for a bistro style meal and a cold beverage.
The kids will also love ‘Aquativity’ a fun and interactive water-play park.
These are just some of our ideas for enjoying Brisbane during the beautiful season of spring. Of course it’s a great destination to visit at any time; brimming with attractions and events all year round.
