Visit Brisbane and explore the "River City". Oaks Hotels & Resorts offers Brisbane accommodation for business and leisure travellers in this beautiful, charming and classy city that can be fast paced or laid back, it's up to you.
Brisbane, Queensland’s capital, attracts thousands of visitors every year. Corporate travellers, holiday makers and adventure seekers flock to Brisbane to enjoy a multitude of attractions and fantastic weather.
Located on the picturesque Brisbane River, which winds gracefully through the city, Brisbane hosts a huge range of exciting major events and festivals. For cultural pursuits, visit the Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), Queensland Museum, Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) or the State Library. For the family or overseas travellers, visit Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, rated one of the "Top 10 Zoos in the World". Take a drive up to the Mt Coot-tha lookout, only 15 minutes from the city and offering 360 degree views right down to the Gold Coast.
Shoppers will love modern arcades, the Queen Street Mall and busy Fortitude Valley. Little Stanley street and the Emporium offer bargains and designer labels. Foodies can stroll over to Eagle Street Pier and delight in the choice of award winning restaurants, cafes and bars scattered there and across the city and surrounding suburbs. If you're thirsty you can learn about beer at the XXXX Brewery House.
Can you go to the beach in the city? In Brisbane you can! Streets Beach at South Bank has sandy shores right in the middle of town. It's a great place for the family to unwind.
Why not jump on a CityCat and journey the river for a leisurely lunch at a suburban hub like Bulimba, Newfarm or Portside Wharf. For the more active try Kangaroo Point for abseiling and rock climbing. Hire a kayak, cycle the riverside pathways or relax with a picnic at one of the many spots along the river. Climb the Storey Bridge, one of only three bridge climbs in the world.
Further afield, indulge in the sport of kings with horse races at Doomben or Eagle Farm Race Tracks or enjoy a day on the water at Redland or Moreton Bay for a chance at spotting a whale.
