Brisbane in 24 hours | The travel junkie – Unreal! I lived in Brisbane now for a better life. In today’s post I wanted to take you through the city and show you how many different things Brisbane has to offer. It is best to start the morning with a cup of coffee (especially if it is 9 degrees outside). Australia has one of the highest coffee consumption rates in the world and finding a coffee shop is quite easy. This time we went to The Brooke in Fortitude Valley. The coffee is delicious and the location is great with outdoor seating overlooking the church across the road.

Brisbane is also known for its shops and design. I found James Street few meters away from my breakfast spot and I must say it is a must visit for anyone who likes to shop.

The city was made for walking, cycling and e-scootering, so after the post-coffee adrenaline rush and James Street visit, I went to the State Library of Queensland. What an experience!

To grab a bite to eat with friends, and on someone’s recommendation, we went to Maya Mexican, a rooftop spot serving Mexican-Australian fusion food and drinks in a stylish open-air venue.

My next target: Roma Street Parkland. After so many e-scooters through the city, just what someone needs before getting lost in a busy night…

I ended the afternoon at Friday’s Riverside, the best place for waterfront dining and 180 degree views of the Brisbane River and the iconic Story Bridge. After this, we recommend taking the ferry back to South Bank to enjoy the sunset.

Stay tuned for more adventures in Australia.


Happy sustainable travel!
