Brisbane City By Night


They say there is beauty behind darkness. Discover Brisbane under the darkness of the night sky. As the sun starts to sleep, and the stars and

the moon start to rule over the night sky, the elegance of Brisbane heightens, the activities get more intense. The dazzling, shimmering

lights of the city are signs that there are more to see and explore at night time in Brisbane.


There are numbers of vantage points where one can see and experience the wonders of Brisbane by the moonlight such as the Story Bridge, Southbank, Mouth Coo-tha, and the Brisbane River. There are also

many recreational activities that are done during the night from rock climbing, kayaking, to watching stage plays and partying at the bars.
Experience Brisbane by night either on a dinner cruise or by foot.

Explore the city by riding the CityCats and other light tours which offer dinner and live entertainment while cruising along the great Brisbane River.

Marvel at the radiance of Brisbane from the Story Bridge which connects Fortitude Valley to Kangaroo Point. This captivating bridge looks like a

glowing bridge during the night with all the hundred giant lights surrounding it. Enjoy spending the night at Southbank Parklands where everything,

from the lagoon to the swimming pool and the Nepalese Peace Pavilion, turns into a fairyland. Eat dinner by candle light, or climb the Kangaroo

Point Cliffs while gazing at the city and its skyline across the river.

Head over to the South Bank Lifestyle Markets or to the Chinatown and Brunswick Street Markets in Fortitude Valley .There are many markets around Brisbane open even during the night, where all things from fresh products to processed foods, from home wares to handcrafted goods, and from jewelry and accessories and even bargain clothes, are sold at cheap prices. Ride a bus and trek the heights of Mount Coot-tha. Hold your breath and be captivated by the excellent panoramic view of the city and the skyline at the summit of the Mouth Coot-tha Lookout which has an observation deck.

Enjoy your favorite dinner in restaurants and cafes near the Lookout such as the Kuta Café and the Summit Restaurant.

For those who want more excitement, try kayaking at night along the Brisbane River and feel the glory of the city while passing by the famous landmarks. Be enamored by the magnificent skyscrapers by moonlight as the cool waters of the river sloshed over the kayak. Delight in watching quality stage plays

in theatres such as the Twelfth Night Complex Theatre located in Bowen Hills. Spend the night by listening to philharmonic orchestra at Redcliffe Cultural Centre or watching live concerts at Queensland Performance Arts Centre and other musical theatres.

Those who like discos and parties can go to the lively bars and pubs around the city. Fortitude Valley, the center hub for night life, is the favorite destination at night. Groove and dance with the hippest music in bars like the Embassy Hotel and Rockafellas Nightclub or dine in cafes and restaurants open until daybreak.

The elegance of Brisbane never fades with the sunset. The city is a living showcase that there is something more to watch for after the dark.

Elegance has a different face at night, a mystery that can only be experienced by exploring an enchanting city such as Brisbane.
