Ride the City Loop or City Hopper

To adults, public transport is a bit dull. But to a kid, it is a huge treat. Brisbane has a free city loop bus or Spring Hill loop bus that stops at some top Brisbane atrtractions including Botanic Garden and Eagle Street Pier.

See here for more information.

If busses aren't your thing, then head to the river to hop on the City Hopper which is a small city cat that runs on the Brisbane River and takes in some truly spectacular scenery.

Outdoor Movies at Lone Pine

Lone Pine is one of Brisbane's favourite attractions, as home to a huge host of Australian native animals. But did you know that they also host free outdoor movies on their lawn? They run on the first and third Friday of every month and show family favourite movies. There is food stalls for purchasing food, and it is BYO blankets and pillows.

Enoggera Reservoir

Enoggera Reservoir is a beautiful spot amongst the trees to go for a dip on a hot day. It is heritage listed and a popular place for picnics, swimming, kayaking and canoeing. There are also bush walks nearby.
