Packing for Winter in Brisbane – A Guide

Sunshine

As we head into the depths of winter in Australia those of you who are lucky enough to be packing for a sub-tropical holiday in Brisbane are probably wondering just what you should be including.  Whether you’re visiting us from out-of-country, or just skipping states, packing for the right weather can cause undue stress. Will I need this coat?  Maybe I should take all ten pairs of shoes just in-case?  I’m sure you’re nodding your head in agreement.

Well, the team here at Walk Brisbane would like to alleviate some of that stress by providing an easy-to-read guide on how to pack for winter in Brisbane!

This the first of what will be a regular series about a range of travel tips, always with a little Brisbane spin of course.

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!

Mother's Day Gift

 

Most Popular

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!

Meet Lucy: Walk Brisbane Walking Tour’s Newest Fan!

One of the best parts of a job like ours is meeting a wide variety of people. A week ago on our City Essentials Tour, we met seasoned traveller and proud Melbournite, Lucy Firman. She is no stranger to a city walking tour, and was (she will agree), a little sceptical of what a former ‘country-city’ like Brisbane had to offer.  Lucy has kindly agreed to give a recap of her experience. Enjoy!

Meet Lucy Firman

“Hi! My name is Lucy Firman. Technically I’m from Melbourne, but have lived here, there, and everywhere! I love to travel, and am a bit of an obsessive city walking tour geek when I travel overseas. It’s the best way to get to know a new city, but I never thought I’d go on a walking tour of Brisbane.  Partly because I didn’t think they existed, and partly because after walking the streets of Tangier, I didn’t think that Brisbane would hold much mystery or interest for me. No offence to all you proud Queenslanders, but your city hasn’t always been given the reputation it deserves! 

But after stumbling across Walk Brisbane’s website, my curiosity was piqued. Why not – I figured? I was probably going to spend three hours wandering around aimlessly on my own anyway, (or binge-watching the latest season of Stranger Things – I’m so behind!), so it seemed like the better choice!
