Streets Beach

By far Brisbane’s most popular city spot; Streets Beach is a manmade beach equipped with soft sand, sub-tropical plants, and clear sapphire waters. You can enjoy a summer day in this man-made pool to cool off from the city’s notorious humidity, people watching the locals and tourists while you are at it.  

Kangaroo Point Cliffs

For the history buffs, Kangaroo Point is one of Brisbane’s oldest suburbs. Famous for its cliffs, showcasing the stunning natural beauty of the city centre and wildlife. Trek up to the bridge to see the stunning city skyline, while refuelling with a picnic in the lush greenery next to the sparkling river snaking through the region.
