We’ve got all the information you need to plan a great holiday.

Greater Brisbane is the largest Australian capital city geographical area and as such it is packed with a wide range of fun, sights and attractions, including the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast’s beaches and theme parks. Our central location enables guests

to take advantage of the many wonderful day trip options in this iconic region.

Queen Street Mall

If retail therapy is what you need, you’re in striking distance of arguably the most exciting city shopping in Australia. The Queen Street Mall offers an unrivalled mix of local, national and international labels and flagship stores. Some 700+ retailers have made their homes here – many enjoy mall and street frontage, others are tucked away inside world-class centres and heritage-listed arcades.

Botanic Gardens

The City Botanic Gardens are the city’s oldest park, originally planted by convicts in 1825 with food crops to feed the prison colony. These gardens include ancient trees, rainforest glades, exotic species and a river boardwalk. There are free guided walks available from Monday to Saturdays at approximately 11.00 a.m. and 1.00 p.m. (excluding public holidays). The walks are at a gentle pace and last approximately one hour. Meet at the Rotunda near the Alice Street Main Entrance.

Brisbane kayaking tour

See the best of Brisbane from an entirely different angle while getting your daily excercise and a dose of fresh air! Choose from a range of kayaking tours and enjoy a fun and friendly environment as you make your way down the Brisbane River by day or by night.

South Bank Parklands

Looking for somewhere to take time out, relax in an idyllic setting, watch the children play and learn or wander through the rainforest in search of treasure; visit South Bank. Explore The Parklands, with its lush foliage, public beach, lagoons and picnic areas, as well as Little Stanley’s cosmopolitan strip of restaurants, bars and boutiques, and Grey Street; one of Brisbane’s defining art and cultural hubs.

There is so much to see and do during your visit to Brisbane which is easily accessible when staying central to it all at Brisbane Gateway Resort.
