5 Top Short Break Ideas in Brisbane

Queensland’s capital city is always buzzing and for its southern counterparts, always a lot warmer. If you need an excuse for some sunshine head up for the blood pumping Bridge to Brisbane run, or catch a game of the super-consistent Brisbane Broncos – there’s always something going down in Brisvegas.


1. Bridge to Brisbane

The annual Bridge to Brisbane celebrates its 21st anniversary this year, taking you through some of the city’s most renowned landmarks. Choose either the 5km or 10km trail and run along the iconic Story Bridge, before finishing up in the breath taking South Bank Parklands.

2. Rugby League

For the NRL fans out there, the mighty Broncos are looking to cement their place in the top 4 just before the finals kick off! Rugby League heartland, Suncorp Stadium, is an experience in itself – enough said!

3. Kids Zone

If you’ve got the kids with you the only place you need to visit is the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary! Deemed as one of the top zoos in the world, Lone Pine lets you get up close and personal to its family of koalas!

4. Wineries

Those who are avid wine drinkers might enjoy a quick drive up to visit one of the most relaxing wineries in the country. Located roughly 50 minutes outside of Brisbane, the Sirromet Winery offers a memorable experience. The full winery tour includes tastings, platters of nibblies, and live entertainment at one of the most breath-taking estates overlooking Moreton Bay.

5. Whale Watching

As if there wasn’t enough happening in Brizzy without mentioning whale watching. Just a quick 40 minute drive north of Brisbane CBD, Redcliffe is the ideal vantage point to get a look at these gorgeous aquatic mammals!
