We’ve put together some of our favourite unique Brisbane activities to ensure you have a unique and unforgettable trip to this bustling city. Get creative with an art class
If you’re itching for inspiration or want to know what to do in Brisbane when it rains, why not take advantage of the many great art classes around Brisbane? Lily-Lee Gallery provides relaxed one-day classes on Sundays that are suitable for beginners as well as kids, while Art Shed Brisbane offers a range of painting and drawing classes and great school holiday workshops. If you’re after something for the adults, Cork & Chroma offers the chance to sip some wine while you’re releasing your inner artiste.
Find the ghosts of the past
Wondering what to do on a Saturday night in Brisbane that’s a bit different? How about taking a walk on the spooky side… Brisbane Ghost Tours offers an excellent range of night-time tours that will scare the pants off anyone. You can choose from a range of tours that cover the main streets of the city, Brisbane Arcade, various city cemeteries and our pick for the creepiest, the Boggo Road Gaol. Just don’t blame us if you can’t sleep when you get back to your apartment that night!
Indulge in a cooking class
Brisbane has access to some incredible fresh produce and there’s no better way to make the most of this than taking a class at a cooking school. We’ve heard very good things about the Putia Pure Food Cooking School, which features classes centred around a wide range of cultures and cooking styles. If you’re a real whiz in the kitchen, brush up your skills with a Desserts and Pastries Masterclass or Gourmet Master Cooking Class at Vanilla Zulu Culinary Adventures.
