WHO says Brisbane doesn’t have enough tourist attractions?

Within 50 klm of Brisbane Backpacker Hostel Somewhere to Stay,

you can do every outdoor activity except Snow Ski!

Brisbane city has more to offer Australian Backpackers than any other on the map of Australia.

Moutains, Rocks, Lakes, Rivers, Seas, Bush, Forests, High, Low, Cheap, Expensive, Food, Entertainment, Beer, Wine, Walk, Run, Cycle, Brisbane has it all!

The city itself  offers plenty of dining opportunities so that there are tough choices to be made on where to find Brisbane’s best pizzas, where to sample European fare or whether it’s time to take in the river with the pick of waterfront dining.

And if you want to get away from it all, there are plenty of hole-in-the wall joints popping up that are adding flair to Brisbane’s sip scene. Those cocktails or beers also wash down bar snacks that are no longer confined to a bowl of peanuts, but rather are a sophisticated selection of nibbles that in recent times have competed on the city’s culinary scene.

As well, there is a rich cultural scene with a range of shopping, outdoor markets, music and arts, especially along the river side.

With “South Bank” being  a major attraction, it would have to be amongst the best pieces of urban hub you will see anywhere, attacting locals and visitors alike

So what’s a backpacker do & see in Brisbane?

The place is packed with attractions – many of them free – and there’s always something on offer.

If the weather’s fine then it’s outdoors in some of the most beautiful locations in Australia. From Mt Coot-tha to Mt Nebo and on to Mt Glorious there are plenty of lookouts and walks in the forest to enjoy the bird and wildlife for the most curious backpacker.

A short ferry ride across Moreton Bay reveals some stunning locations on Moreton Island and North Stradbroke Island that rival some of the better-known tourist attractions further north on the Queensland coast.

And keep in mind that whale watching off the bay is getting better each year. And don’t forget Bribie Island,  Cross the Bribie Bridge to enjoy the slow-paced charms of this island. Take a cruise up Pumicestone Passage, swim or kayak in the still waters or cross to the surf side and enjoy the small waves of Woorim Beach.

Back in the city and the Brisbane River offers plenty of places to enjoy the outdoors, climb the Kangaroo Cliffs, walk or cycle the pathways and spend time in many of the parks, including the South Bank Parklands.

The riverside copped a battering in the summer floods of 2011, but much has been done to restore all of the attractions making them bigger and better than ever before.

The shopping in Brisbane is among the best and much of it located out of the city centre in boutique suburban shopping areas such as West End and South Bank.

Brisbane continues to gain recognition as a place for fine dining but there’s more than just the expensive restaurants with lots of other culinary treats available and stuff to do for the every travelling backpacker.
