What’s cool to do in Brisbane? Let’s ask a concierge… Front office manager Yolandie Holtzhausen shares 5 things you must do in Brisbane while staying at Spicers Balfour in New Farm (right in the hip Fortitude Valley hub).

1. James Street

Head to James Street, Fortitude Valley, a boutique shopping precinct home to designers such as Gail Sorronda. Check out Endota Spa and replenish your mind, body and soul, before some Champagne at Cru Bar.

2. Mt Coot-tha

Collect a picnic hamper from our front desk and head to the Brisbane Botanical Gardens at Mt Coot-tha for a relaxing lunch. Enjoy a stroll around the sub-tropical gardens before heading up to the Mt Coot-tha lookout.

3. Newstead breweries

Just a short drive away in Newstead you’ll find microbreweries such as Green Beacon, Newstead Brewing Co and Tippler’s Tap. Be sure to try 3 Bolt Pale from Green Beacon.
