Chistmas Brisbane

Looking to spend this Christmas Brisbane or surrounding area. Looking for relaxation and fun activities. It is just for myself and my wife. After here we are heading off diving up in Cairns then comming back to Noosa for a week. Anyone got any tips on great places to chill in or around Bribane for the Chrimbo period.

In the city there is Southbank Parklands on the south side of the Brisbane river which has lovely restaurants, boardwalks, shops and markets in the evenings leading up to xmas and on the weekends. You can take a walk across the pedestrian bridge from the parklands to the city and wander down the queen st mall....but keep in mind it will be hot and humid......lots of water, hat and sunscreen.

Also in the city is the Roma St Arboretum or you can catch a 'city cat' ferry and have a trip up the brisbane river....very nice on a hot day. If you have a car you can take a day trip up to the Glass House Mountains and visit Maleny & Montville about 90mins north of the city........lots of restaurants, shops....very picturesque views....just park your car at one end and walk up one side of the road and down the other back to your car.....will probably take a couple of hours especially if you stop for lunch or at least coffee in one of many cafes.

And there is always sea world, dreamworld and the gold coast south of brisbane.......all accessible by train.

These are just a couple of my favourite things to do when in Brizzie.... happy holiday :)
