Top experiences in Brisbane
An hour’s drive north of the Gold Coast and a short flight from Cairns, Brisbane is fast gaining a reputation as a premier incentive destination. Plan a memorable Brisbane program with these three activities.
For a fresh perspective on Brisbane’s nightlife, book Riverlife’s Paddle & Prawns experience. As the sun begins to set, board an illuminated kayak at Kangaroo Point for a 90-minute cruise along the Brisbane River, taking in the lights of the city’s skyscrapers. After your paddle, enjoy dinner at Kangaroo Point, dining on fresh local prawns or a gourmet barbecue, paired with Australian wine.
For a bird’s-eye view of Brisbane, sign up for the Story Bridge Adventure Climb. Departing from Kangaroo Point, the two-hour climb takes you to the top of the Story Bridge. From this lofty position 80 metres above sea level, take in the panoramic views of the Brisbane River, city skyline and surrounding landscape. Once you’ve had your photo snapped at the summit, return to Kangaroo Point for drinks and canapés overlooking the river.
CUDDLE A KOALA
There’s one photo that’s essential in every Australian album: cuddling a koala. Lone Pine is Australia’s largest koala sanctuary and it’s conveniently located less than 30 minutes from the centre of Brisbane. Sign up for the Koala Encounter to watch a koala health check, then enter the enclosure for a hold and your close-up.
