Picnic by the river

If you wander along the Southbank side of the river you will find yourself in a lush green grassy area surrounded by restaurants.

There are many supermarkets in close vicinity if you want to get a picnic to arrange for yourself and enjoy it while the sun disappearance below the horizon.  Then pop into an alcohol shop and get your tipple of choice to fully enjoy the experience. You can sit for hours just chilling and watching the world go by, watch out for the shitty mosquitoes though

If you’re feeling fly the restraints surrounding offer their own picnic baskets which you can buy, but unfortunately for some travelers this is out of their budget.

Hike to Stradbroke island

Whoever visiting Brisbane, highly recommend taking the Stradbroke Island hike. The most picturesque perfect place. Take a bus to point lookout and admire the stunning views and endure the long and beautiful hike. Make sure you take lots of snacks, water, and suntan lotion because it’s intense and there are lots of steps.
