The Ultimate 24 Hour Brisbane Itinerary


Greyhound Blog

So you’ve got 24 hours in the river city and you’re wondering what there is to do? Well we hope you’ve had a good night’s rest because here is the ultimate itinerary to squeeze as much out of Brisbane in one day.




5.30am - Brisbane Riverwalk


Get the day off to the right start with a bit of exercise and a walk along the recently rebuilt Brisbane Riverwalk. The devastating 2011 floods that ravaged parts of Queensland washed away the original Riverwalk but the City pulled together, cleaned up and rebuilt this popular attraction. The walk is 870m in length and showcases great views of Brisbane, particularly early morning or late afternoon.


7am - Breakfast In The Valley

As the revellers from the night before are leaving Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley the café scene is just coming alive with the smell of freshly roasted coffee. There’s no shortage of choices for breakfast in The Valley with top spots like Harvey’s, King Arthur Café and Gerard’s Bistro and for the coffee aficionados, the Campos Flagship Store is a caffeinated heaven.


9:30am - Climb Story Bridge

Give your breakfast time to settle because you’re about to take in the City from a very unique vantage point. The Story Bridge is one of the most iconic bridges in Brisbane and climbing to the top is a truly unique, must-do experience. The pace of the climb is relaxed ensuring people of all ages above 10 years old can enjoy 2hour journey, taking in the colourful history of the bridge along with the breathtaking views of the Brisbane skyline and beyond.


12:00pm - Lunch At Southbank

South Bank

No doubt climbing to the top of Brisbane has worked up an appetite so it’s time to head across the river and explore South Bank. The precinct is 17 hectares of parklands, restaurants, stalls and cafes along with the famous Wheel Of Brisbane (just in-case you didn’t get enough views of the Brisbane skyline from the Story Bridge). South Bank is also home to Brisbane’s inner-city beach perfect for catching some sun and having a swim on those warm afternoons.


2:00pm - Craft Beer Walking Tour

You’ve had your relaxing lunch maybe you recouped some energy snoozing under an umbrella on a beach at South Bank, it’s time to get back out and explore Brisbane. A Craft Beer Walking Tour is a great way to experience Brisbane from a local’s perspective and see some of Brisbane’s best beer drinking venues. From hole in the wall bars to stylish pubs and clubs, the City is a beer lover’s paradise. Plus if beer isn’t your thing, there is also Chocolate Tours available for the sweat tooths among us.


6:30pm - Eat Street Markets

Eat Street Markets

Brisbane’s Eat Street Markets have become one of the City’s must-do, must-see and must-taste events with people travelling from all around South-East Queensland to experience the markets. Self proclaimed as the ‘ultimate foodie extravaganza’ the markets showcase flavours from around the world, live music and licensed venues. The markets are on the river’s North Shore in Hamilton and while you can get there by taxi why not take one of Brisbane’s famous CityCats? 


9:30pm - Finish The Night With Drinks In The City

Brisbane City

If you’ve still got energy to burn and you want to kick on into the night, jump back aboard the CityCat and head to the Eagle Street Pier terminal. The area is home to some of Brisbane’s best bars and clubs and showcases some spectacular views of the Story Bridge. Sit back with a drink in hand and tell stories about how only hours ago you were standing at the top of this spectacular city.
