Love the location next to the river and beach as well as close to South Bank Cinema so you can go here before or after a movie. My fave dishes are the choclate dessert pizza with bananas and strawberries and the tutti fruity waffles!

Le Bon Choix is an amazing French bakery owned by a friendly man who has opened many stores with his successful business. They have macaroons, innovative and fancy delicious cakes with different textures, savoury options, croissants and an array of hot drink options. My faves are the cookies and cream macaroon, Claudine cake I could eat all day as well as Kakuma Caramel and Pate a choux. They also have the best Almond croissants I've ever had so they are definitely worth checking out!

The best value cinema in Brisbane with the tastiest mint choc top ice creams. You also get 4hrs free parking when you watch a movie. My fave things to buy here are the mint choc top which is a must, mixed flavor frozen drink can be fun, hot chips with sweet chilli chicken tenders, popcorn, coffee and cake deal at cafe.

Parks & Nature
A must see for visitors to Brisbane- it's a man made beach next to the Brisbane River with different areas including a fun area for kids a more private section if you want a bit more peace and quiet and an area to play water games and at Christmas time watch movies from the water or on the sand. There are also great BBQ areas you can enjoy with friends, families or as a couple, perfect for a warm Brisbane day or evening.

New Farm Park is one of the city’s and my own favorite park where you sit on the grass by the river and watch the CityCats and other boats cruise up and down while embracing a riverside breeze, or drop a picnic rug under a tree in the main oval area, bbq with friends/ family and kick a football or throw a Frisbee with friends.

A giant edible garden filled with exotic plants and fragrant herbs isn’t exactly what you’d imagine yourself stumbling across in the inner city. Set within the South Bank Parklands, the Epicurious Garden grows seasonal fruit and vegetables. To keep the garden thriving, drop in Tuesday to Thursday from 7am to 2pm to collect free food from the Harvest Cart.

Ride share is super easy when you download the Uber app, it's safe and secure and you receive great service as you get to rate the experience on the app. You can see how far away Ubers are from your location on the app and if there is any surcharge at the time and book if happy with everything. Uber can be up to or more than half the price of a taxi so if you don't want to catch the bus or train I'd definitely recommend Uber.

Sightseeing
The Brisbane Wheel is a great way to get a beautiful view of South Bank, Brisbane River and some of the city. It's a quick experience but definitively a must do when visiting Brisbane. If done at night it can be a lovely accompaniment to a romantic evening before or after a stroll by the River in the moonlight.

Built between 1920 and 1930, the heritage-listed Brisbane City Hall was the tallest building in the city until 1960. Free tours up the old city hall clock tower run every 15 minutes during opening hours. Head up in the original lift and get a bird’s-eye view over King George Square and the buildings that now tower over it.

Arts & Culture
It can be fun to check out the Queensland Museum and Science Centre, they often change themes of what the Museum is about such as 'Mummy's' or 'Dinosaurs' etc so definitely check out what theme it is during your stay to see if it sparks your interest!

QPAC is an Amazing Performance Centre where they showcase some of the best talent in Theatre- Musicals, Dance- Ballet, Music- Orchestra & Acting- Plays. I have enjoyed Musicals there including 'Mary Poppins', 'The Sound of Music', 'Singing in the Rain' & 'Aladdin' as well as an Amazing play called 'Dracula'. I recommend you see what's playing when you're here & book asap to get the best seats as great seats add to the experience for example I was in the 2nd row from the stage for 'Singing in the Rain' which was the splash zone so got special rain coats & were splashed which really added to the experience. You can stick around after the Musicals & some plays to meet the cast for Q's &photos.
