Interestingly, Brisbane is one of only two cities in Australia where public transport use has dropped away over the past 6 years, in favour of car travel. We say ‘interestingly’, but to be frank, got a little bored writing the sentence.
Similar to the GC, there is a multitude of options to get around, with the CBD nowhere near as chaotic as Sydney and Melbourne; music to a Bucks party’s ears if you are kicking things off on a Thursday or Friday. Public transport is cheap as chips, while the airport has an express train (hello Melbourne and Tullamarine!) that runs form 5:45 am until 10pm at night. We’re partial to water travel as the mercury rarely dips below 23 degrees, so have a crack at a water taxi or boat cruise if you want to look all Mr Fancy Pants.
A trip to watch the Broncos play, or if you really fancy to ‘immerse’, a State of Origin game at Suncorp Stadium should be at the very top of any sport lovers list. No rivalry in Australia matches it. Head down Caxton street pre-game (handy hint: if you’re neutral, don’t wear baby blue), and sink a few XXXX’s before a short stroll to the stadium.
A superbox at a Broncos game is also bucket list arrangement. Let your party organisers at The Bucks Co know if this is on your hit list, and we’ll hit our little black book of contacts up to make it happen.
Whilst talking all things XXXX, the brewery tour of Queensland’s long standing favourite is still popular for many a Bucks group. Granted, with the abundance of craft and new breweries offering an abundance of immersive experiences (and some cracking tasting boards), you are spoit for choice, but if you’re old school, it fits the bill.
