BRISBANE HIGHLIGHTS

Whilst attending Austmine 2019, why not get to know Brisbane during your stay?

Queensland’s capital city Brisbane is known as Australia’s New World City. Innovative, modern and welcoming, Brisbane has been rated in the top 30 per cent of the world’s fastest-growing cities and in the top 10 cities in the world for lifestyle and talent. As an ideal conventions city, delegates are greeted with a well-connected and walkable city that offers all the sophistication of larger global destinations. Here are just a few things to see and do.

Brisbane City’s coffee scene has flourished over recent years, with new boutique coffee haunts sprouting up around every corner. View them all here.

The City is truly Queensland’s premier shopping destination. It is home to over 1000 stores, including the largest collection of flagship stores and unique boutiques in the state.  Here is the quick guide.

Venture off the beaten track and wander through Brisbane City’s hidden laneways to discover a wealth of glistening gems. These venues are perfect for a quick bite, drink with friends or a gastronomic delight surrounded by some of Brisbane’s best architecture and street art. Escape from the hustle and bustle of the CBD and immerse yourself in each laneway’s unique character and charm. See them all here.
