I recently got back from a trip to Brisbane and was surprised that I spent $0 on attractions! Here are six places that you can visit for absolutely free.
Brisbane Botanical Gardens – Not only are these stunning gardens beautiful to explore on your own, but free guided walks are also avaliable daily.
Queensland Museum – Unlike Melbourne Museum, the entry for @qldmuseum is completely free. It is really large with many exhibitions, however it was really busy with a lot of families so I made a quick exit. The Discovery Centre is a great place to take kids.
Queensland Art Gallery – Right next to the Queenland Museum, is the @qagoma. It had a mix of classical and aboriginal art with some beautiful pieces. It is quite a large gallery so allow at least an hour or so to get through it all.
Brisbane City Hall – This is my favourite on the list. The @brisbanecityhall is an architectural masterpiece with many areas open to the public. Check out the auditorium room with the giant organ. Truly breathtaking.
Museum of Brisbane – If you visit the city hall, check out the @museumofbrisbane on the third floor. It is a lot smaller than the previously mentioned QLD Museum but definitely worth a visit. It was a lot less crowded which allowed me to take my time and get through it slowly which I really enjoyed.
