Are you planning to visit Brisbane this year? If you love the arts, here are five things you need to do in Brisbane to feed your inner artist.
Visit the Gallery of Modern Art. Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) is one of the most popular art galleries in Australia. Around 16,000 pieces are displayed here and best of all, there’s no entrance free. However, you might need to buy a ticket for some of the special exhibitions.
See a musical performance. If you love performing arts, one of the best ways to enjoy the city is to catch must-see theatre performances. Check the upcoming shows in Brisbane and experience the city’s flourishing art scene in a new light. For the popular shows, it’s best to reserve your tickets in advance.
Give your taste buds a treat. Trying out gourmet treats from around the world in one place is one of the best experiences you can give your taste buds. Check out Brisbane’s markets at Manly, Queen Street and Powerhouse and try tasty delights from Middle Eastern falafel to Italian pan-fried, butter gnocchi. The explosion of flavours in your mouth is considered a work of art.
Shop for unique souvenirs. Shopping is considered an art, especially if you put much thought on what to get for your buck. The Collective Markets in Brisbane house a huge assortment of shops of artisans selling eclectic souvenirs. If you happen to be in Brisbane on a Friday night or during a weekend, visit this buzzing market with Stanley Street Plaza and get interesting pieces for your family and friends back home.
Visit Adelaide Street If you’re looking for the best location for all your travel OOTDs (outfit of the day), go to Adelaide Street and be amazed by the stylish shops and restaurants that line the whole street. You can also find some of the city’s popular architectural sites such as the Anzac Square, Central Station and City Hall. It’s a place for people who love the fusion of fashion, food, architecture, history and style.
Brisbane is a lovely city to visit any time of the year. Whether you like to shop or do touristy things, make sure you check out the city’s art scene before you leave.
