The most popular things to do in Brisbane

Brisbane’s top family-friendly attraction is the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, a small and eden-like wildlife refuge bound to entertain tots and teens alike. Here, cuddly koala bears claw through silver-blue eucalyptus trees, fluffy emus dance across grassy lawns, and rainbow lorikeets chirp overhead. The Queensland Museum is another unmissable family attraction – a vast heritage museum containing a dazzling dinosaur exhibit of animatronic, life-like dinosaur models, including a mighty T-Rex. For a peaceful afternoon, kids and parents alike will love the City Botanic Gardens, a peaceful riverside stretch of green lawns, palm groves, and multicolored fragrant flowerbeds. For an alternative and active afternoon excursion, meanwhile, head to the bustling South Bank, a riverfront cultural hotspot full of playgrounds and restaurants – there’s even a small waterpark and sandy river-beach, too.

Best ways to get around Brisbane

Brisbane boasts a range of public transport that’s safe and easy to use – altogether a convenient way of getting around the city with kids in tow. This network includes buses, ferries, and trains, and it’s all interconnected via a uniform ticketing system called Translink. Taxicabs are also popular across the city, and make for a good means of quick and easy family-friendly transport for short or long journeys. If you’re traveling with slightly older kids, why not rent bicycles and cruise around the leafy streets?
