Things to do
Go bush and climb Mt Gravatt before tramping through the Toohey Forest and then check out some native Aussie critters at the Daisy Hill Koala Centre. Or if you'd prefer to spend a bit of time on the coastline, you can splash about at Wynnum Beach and then go for a walk along the Mangrove Boardwalk.
Love your sport? Catch a cricket match at the Gabba or have a game of cricket yourself by setting up your wickets at Greenslopes Park or Moorbell Street Park and whiling away the arvo.
Shopping and dining
Although Garden City in Mt Gravatt
is the best-known shopping centre in Brisbane's southern suburbs, there are plenty of other spots to get a good dose of retail therapy. There's the Eight Mile Plains Shopping Centre and Sunnybank Market Square, for starters. There are also heaps of vintage shops and boutique fashion stores dotted around the place - the antique stores in Woolloongabba are a must-stop. Also, the Saturday Fresh Markets and the Sunday Discovery Markets at Rocklea are always popular. So make sure you bring your credit cards!
When it comes to dining in Brissy's southern 'burbs, you couldn't be more spoiled for choice! There's everything from Ethiopian to Italian and Thai to Mod Oz! So, you won't have any issues finding a place that suits your taste and budget.
Getting here and around
Most of Brisbane's southern suburbs are only about 20km from the Brisbane Airport
, so score a seat on one of our cheap flights to Brisbane
and then cruise around on public buses and trains. Easy peasy!
