An action-packed holiday in Brisbane – This Week on TRAVEL GUIDES
This week our travel guides fly to Brisbane for a hot and intense week based in the river city, with mines, fine dining and the terrifying.
Queensland’s capital is a vacation hotspot filled with spectacular scenery and original activities. So is moving to Brisbane the best way to take a break?
Staying at the Emporium Hotel in Southbank, voted Australia’s first boutique hotel, the lavish high-tech suites and panoramic rooftop pool are a taste of luxury for our guides.
The Mix Bar’s dining in the dark experience takes guides into a completely blacked-out environment that gives guests the experience of blind dining. The mystery menu leads to very questionable table manners.
Next, our guides get into the action at Stunt Park, a training ground for crash-test dummies, including car rollovers, flight training, and fire.
The Yatala Drive-In is one of the few remaining drive-ins in Australia with a classic car experience and costumes. Grease is the word for our guides settling into the classic musical.
It’s time to discover hidden backcountry gems at Mount Tamborine’s Thunderbird Park, where our guides dig for prehistoric thunder egg crystals.
The bustling town of Mount Tamborine offers eclectic arts and crafts, chic homewares, and fine food and drink. Some very strong spirits from Tamborine Mountain Distillery educate our guides on liquors from A to Z.
A day of family fun gets the blood pumping at Movie World with some of the spookiest rides in the country, followed by the chance to unleash their inner child at Major Dirt Box where they can operate heavy machinery.
While rolling in to bowls at Merthyr Bowls on the banks of the Brisbane River, our guides decide how they will rate their Brissy fling out of five stars.
