Brisbane..Things to do in Brisbane

Night kayaking at the wrecks

Kayaking in crystal clear waters

It’s pitch black as you push your clear Perspex kayak off the shore of Moreton Island – relying on the moon and two LED strips as your guide. The historic, rusting wrecks are all the more eerie and quiet at night. Your bright LED lights will attract fish that will leap at your vessel. But all the better, curious turtles might come to say hello – and you’ll follow them drifting 200m offshore without a care. Australian Sunset Safaris offers the experience as part of its overnight Moreton Island tour.

See performing arts that’s truly underground

Head beneath the surface to the refurbished Spring Hill Reservoirs for performances from The Underground Opera Company and small theatre troupes. Built between 1871 and 1882, these large underground spaces held the city’s main water supply until it was closed in 1962. Now you can catch live opera or theatrical performances down there. The acoustics are truly something.

Dive with manta rays

Over the summer months Manta Rays flock to the Manta Bommie dive site just off North Stradbroke Island. Ranked in the top 10 dive sites in Australia, Manta Lodge will take you out there where you’ll come face-to-face with the large creatures plus leopard sharks, guitar sharks, turtles, wobbegongs and bamboo sharks, octopus, pelagics, bull, eagle and other rays plus lionfish and much more.

Walk over to King Island

Look, it’s no tropical island paradise but at low tide a sandbank appears in the bay off Woody Point. Stroll across to King Island, tick it off your list and keep an eye out that the bank doesn’t disappear on you. It’s all about timing.

Drink carrot beer

Fresh carrots from the farm at Kalbar South of Brisbane

Beer goggles of a different kind – this beer won’t just make you temporarily smarter, better looking and more confident but also let you see in the dark. A carrot farmer from Kalbar teamed up with the local craft brewery Four Hearts Brewing to produce a special beer. Yes it’s orange.

Hoot Camp is the new boot camp

Skill up and get fit at the same time by ditching boot camp and trying hoot camp. It’s a circus school for adults that runs every Wednesday night with the folks at Flipside Circus. Your party tricks just got better.

Explore historic Fort Lytton by night

Fort Lytton at Night

One of Brisbane’s closest national parks is home to the historic Fort Lytton, built in the 19th century to protect the city from possible enemy raids by ship. Every Thursday actors bring the story of decorated WW1 hero and Brisbane local Raymond Augustus Stanley to life. Theatre performance, sound, light and a projection transport you to another time.

Ride through the city in the last steam locomotive to be built in Australia.

Steam Train Sunday

Choo choo! All aboard for Steam Train Sunday. Travel through Brisbane on a historic steam train to relive the romance of travel from a bygone era. The one-hour journey travels through city stations, with you wandering about the restored old-world carriages.

Fly like a bird over Mt Tamborine

Hang Glider

You might have seen hang gliders leaping off the western side of the mountain. The great news is that experience isn’t needed – you can join them for a tandem flight.
