We’ve got you more than covered with things to do in Brissie, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold coast. Here are our top 10 picks for your holiday adventures.

Underwater World

Have you ever wanted a one-on-one encounter with an underwater creature? Well, this is your chance! Get up close and personal with a hands-on seal experience like no other. You can also visit amazing underwater creatures like sea horses, turtles and sharks or take a tour through the Jellyfish kingdom or have your photo taken with a seal 


Holey moley

Holey Moley isn’t just your average putt putt course... it's like a cross between child like fun and adult clubbing. It's got you covered both on the green and off with plenty of bevvies that we're sure can only improve your game. Say goodbye to traditional mini golf because Holey Moley has taken it to a whole new level. 

Australia Zoo

Just a one-hour train ride from Brisbane Central or a one-hour drive, at Australia Zoo you’ll get to cuddle a koala, hand feed kangaroos and see a salt water crocodile strike from the water’s edge in the world-famous Crocoseum - you little ripper!! 

Story Bridge Climb

If harnessing up and strapping yourself in (literally) to scale buildings sounds like your kinda thing, then it’s time for your next challenge. Brisbane’s Story Bridge climb allows you to experience the city in a new perspective with amazing city and skyline views. 

Brisbane Wheel

Who says you can't become a tourist in your own town! Face your fear of heights and soak up the views from the Wheel of Brisbane... we're talking 360 degree panoramic views of Brisbane's cityscape 

I Fly Skydiving

If jumping out of a plane isn't up your alley (and we don't blame you), then indoor skydiving might just be for you. Feel the rush as you float effortlessly into a giant glass tunnel. Warning: Indoor skydiving is both an exhilarating experience and highly addictive sport. 


Don't be fooled... Timezone isn't just for gamers. It's loaded with a variety of activities from laser skirmish & dodgem cards to ten pin bowling. While on the Gold Coast, why not visit one of the amazing white sandy beaches, also known as 'the place full of tourists who take photos all the time'. 


Satisfy your inner adrenalin junkie at Australia’s largest theme park! Dreamworld has everything on offer with rides, wildlife experiences, live shows, cultural displays and a water park. Dreamworld is sure to keep anyone's inner kid happy. 

Strike Bowling

$8 game of ten pin bowling or laser tag… YES, PLEASE! Strike bowling is fully equipped with games, a gourmet kitchen offering delicious party packages. If you're looking for something with minimal effort, they also have a fully equipped cocktail bar  

Escape Manor

Do you like solving puzzles? Escape rooms are the new rage right now and you can do it right here in Brisbane. So how does it work? You and your mates are trapped in rooms and the only way to escape is by using logic, problem solving and teamwork.
