Things to do in Brisbane | Brisbane City Council

Brisbane City Council is growing your lifestyle, so you can do more of what you love, including spending more time enjoying Brisbane’s beautiful climate and connecting with the people and places that make our city great.

We’re creating more markets, festivals and events, and protecting Brisbane’s great outdoors, including making Mt Coot-tha a green leisure precinct, with a scenic zipline, new picnic spots and more walking trails. We’re also maintaining more than 2100 parks across Brisbane, planting more trees, delivering more outdoor gyms, aqua parks, and better pools and libraries. You can even explore more ways to enjoy our river and Moreton Bay.
