Looking for the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift Idea?

Thinking of the perfect Mother’s Day gift can be difficult; there are only so many ‘Best Mum’ mugs one should have.

Which is why, with only a few days left before the big day (queue panic mode), we’ve put together a list of Mother’s Day ideas to help you out!  

Over here at Walk Brisbane we obviously believe in the importance of getting out and about, and making memories with a hat on your head and legs at the ready.  We have three tours that are perfect Mother’s Day gifts.  

All of our tours are available as gift vouchers.  Don’t just get one for Mum, buy one for you as well and you can enjoy the experiences together!

Our highly popular three-hour City Essentials Tour is available 7 days a week.  You’ll be out and about by 9:30am, enjoying the sights and sounds of a fresh new Brisbane day.  There are stops for the young and the old along the way, and we guarantee you will learn something that you just didn’t know about your city.  We finish up at the picturesque Eagle Street Pier, where our guide will recommend the best lunch spots in the area.  

If art is more Mum’s thing we have our Art and Design Tour for those interested in the cultural side of the city. You’ll be exposed to Brisbane’s open-air art scene, including murals, sculptures, and rogue street art. You’ll learn about each piece and hear the interesting stories associated with them. Our tour guide will also give plenty of recommendations on art galleries and the best food/art spots. You’ll finish the tour at GOMA where you can wander through the galleries, or if you feel like spending the rest of the day out doors, Southbank is a short stroll away.  Available Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. 

Finally, our Laneways and Cafe Tour This afternoon tour, which begins at 1.30pm is available Tuesday – Friday.  You will be taken on a tasting trip through the streets of Brisbane. You’ll stop at selected laneway cafes, talk to passionate owners and baristas, and enjoy drinks at every corner. There’ll be plenty of food recommendations given, delicious bites consumed, and you’ll get to know the city as you walk.

 We can’t wait to see you and make this Mother’s Day gift one she won’t forget!

Street Art in Brisbane – A Cultural Treasure Trove

From bawdy murals in sixth-century Pompeii, to East Harlem’s Wall of Fame in New York, it’s hard to ignore the impact street art has had on the socio-political climate, and art-culture of the world.

 

In almost every age of history humans have been eager to leave their mark, (We’re sure you’re all familiar with the hurried scratchings left by starry-eyed teenagers on the back of the public-toilet-door).   But when you think of street art, what are the places that come to mind?  Who are the artists?  Basquiat in New York?  Pez in Barcelona?  The latest Banksy?
