For the locals, Brisbane is perhaps the best city there is especially when it comes to adventure and entertainment. With its sub-tropical climate and lively outdoor spaces mixed with an urban landscape, there are so much you can do and make the most of the friendly atmosphere. But if you truly want to experience the best the city can offer, don’t follow where the tourist go.
Here are some of the activities any true-blue Brisbanite would do when they’re on a night out or a short weekend adventure:
See nature on two wheels
There is no shortage of breathtaking natural sceneries in Brisbane. Locals say the best way to see and experience them is on a bike. The Bunyaville Conservation Park, for instance, has numerous biking trails that will surely test your skills. If you’re just beginning to appreciate biking, however, head over to Wynnum Manly and treat yourself to a scenic, quiet ride.
Brisbane locals don’t say no to good entertainment, especially if it’s theatre. Fortunately, you can always catch good theatre shows in Brisbane, be it musical, comedy, or more contemporary performing arts.
Eat at Eat Streets
One of the ways to truly know the city is to sample its food. In Brisbane, there is one place where you can do just that. Eat Street Markets is located along the Brisbane River and offers a myriad of flavours, from Asian to Italian, to modern Australian. Talk to the locals there as well for insider tips where to eat next.
See the city at sunset
While the Kangaroo Point Cliffs isn’t exactly a local secret, you still should not miss visiting this when you’re in the city. This where you can get a glimpse of Brisbane in all its glory, bathed in the warm, lazy glow of the afternoon sun. Bring your camera and take as many snaps as you want.
Brisbanites know just what to do when it comes to having fun. When you’re in the city, ditch the brochure and go where the locals go.
