We’ve listed the top 5 day trip ideas you can take while holidaying in Brisbane. So once you’ve booked your accommodation from the beautiful apartments Brisbane has to offer, take a look at these great trip ideas. You won’t be disappointed.

Take a drive to Surfers Paradise
The beautiful beaches are stand-out attractions when it comes to taking a drive to the lovely Surfers Paradise. From golden sandy beaches to great surf there is lots of fun in the sun to be had. Surfers Paradise has many great restaurants and bars and an array of great night spots. If it’s shopping you’re after, you won’t be disappointed. Surfers has everything to keep the shopaholic occupied.

Visit the major theme parks – Movie World, Sea World, Dream World, Wet and Wild
The theme parks are a must do when on a family holiday or if you just love to have fun. With new rides and features being added to the parks constantly, there is always something exciting to see. In the warmer months, Wet and Wild is always a favourite with the kids too.

What’s also great is there are so many different types of passes you can now buy. That means you and your family can enjoy a number of theme parks for a set discounted price.

Go for a drive to Mt Tamborine

The Tamborine National Park is located in the Gold Coast Hinterland. There is no other place like it for getting back to nature. From enjoying the tranquil surrounds to nature photography, a visit to Mt Tamborine makes a great day trip from Brisbane.

There are also many great walking tracks available for you to enjoy the magnificent scenery. Just allow yourself extra time if you are walking with small children or taking photographs.

There are many great cruises you can take from Brisbane and Redcliff that will take you out so you can see for yourself the beautiful giant creatures of the sea. This is something you can easily organise from the comfort of your serviced apartments or hotel room by simply making a call to the cruise company or looking them up online. Remember, this is seasonal and your chance to watch Humpback Whales up close is between May and November each year.

Take a drive to Byron Bay

Byron Bay is a great drive from Brisbane’s CBD. It’s a good idea to leave as early in the morning as you can so you can spend the full day there. Check out the beach, local arts and crafts and their many restaurants, cafes and bars.

If you enjoy going to markets, Byron Bay is home to some of the very best. It is a good idea to view their availability online and coincide your visit when the markets are on.

There are so many wonderful day trips you can take from Brisbane. I hope we’ve given you some great ideas on trips you can take the next time you are holidaying in Brisbane.
