Solo Traveler’s Itinerary for First-timers in Brisbane

Brisbane is a dream destination for every solo traveler. The lively city offers a thrilling combination of culture, modernity, and nature. Its warm and inviting atmosphere makes it a great place to relax and try adventures.

From bustling markets to lush sanctuaries, there’s an array of experiences awaiting in Brisbane. So, if you’re all fired up to explore Brisbane for the first time, here are some must-visit places!

1. Go treasure hunting at Paddington

Paddington Antique Centre or Empire Revival is a popular antiques and vintage treasure. Earlier, it was an old theatre, but now it’s booming with retro light fixtures, vintage outfits and accessories, and antique furniture. You might find a really good deal if you take your time to search around!

2. Kiss on a Ferris Wheel

One of the most interesting activities in this city is riding the Ferris Wheel – The Wheel of Brisbane in South Bank. But wait, this is a solo trip, so where should you get a date?

Well, you can find your Brisbane romance from escort services. Select the most gorgeous woman from the catalog of beauties and set a date.

Take her on the ride to enjoy the cityscape together. The iconic Wheel takes you 60 meters high within a closed and air-conditioned gondola. You can wait until you reach the top to lean in for a kiss or let your inner freak out and make out throughout the 15-minute ride.

After that, you can take your lady out for a dinner date or book a room to fulfill your desires!

3. Swoon over the animals at Lone Pine

The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is the largest koala sanctuary worldwide. It houses 130 koalas, and you are allowed to cuddle with them and take pictures of them. It also has other animals like wombats, wallabies, and dingoes. They also let you feed kangaroos.

4. Get the best view from Mount Coot-Tha

Hike up Mount Coot-Tha until the lookout point. Don’t worry, it’s a relatively easy hike, and it’s also used as a biking trail. You’ll be rewarded with the city’s panoramic view. It’s best to start off early in the morning before sunrise and watch the fiery sun come up the horizon from the top.

To reach the spot, go to Indooroopilly Satiation via train. Walk across Indooroopilly Shopping centre and seek the help of Google Maps for the rest! It’s best to choose the path across a steep hill as that takes lesser time!

5. Get edible souvenirs

Whether you want to surprise your crew back home, souvenirs is a great idea. However, most of the time, people store souvenirs away in the cupboard and hardly look back.

So, this time, buy edible souvenirs, i.e., a range of handcrafted chocolates from the renowned Noosa Chocolate Factory. Grab as many as you can in a paper bag and pay depending on the weight!

6. Indulge in local breweries’ craft beers

Brisbane has a range of breweries that offer sophisticated beers. Try out all the choices from these most popular ones.

Felons Brewing Co.: They offer 56 beers directly from a keg, along with an exotic menu.

Newstead Brewing Co.: The microbrewery offers 12 kinds of beers on tap.

Green Beacon Brewing Co.: This is popular for its 6 preservative-free beers.

7. Go on a ghost hunt

Brisbane also offers you several guided ghost tours. They take you around the Dutton Park Cemetery and tell your horrific tales and the history of the spot.

You can also go on “orb” hunting but make sure you have a digital camera. If you’re not aware, orbs are balls of ghostly energy that appear in your camera images.

8. Go kayaking at sunset

Another heartwarming activity is setting out on a kayaking adventure across the gleaming water of the Brisbane River. Book your ride at twilight and glide through the calm river with an illuminated kayak. Drift across the Story Bridge and enjoy the beautiful bank scenes before you return ashore.  

9. Climb Story Bridge

If you love adventures, conquer the iconic Story Bridge. Reach the top and take in the marvelous Greater Brisbane views. From Moreton Bay toward the east and Scenic Rim Mountains to the south, the bridge offers you a panoramic picture of the city!


With these popular gems of Brisbane, you will surely enjoy an unforgettable adventure. So, book your tickets, pack your bags, and prepare to be amazed in the dynamic city!
