Guida dei quartieri di Brisbane
Whether you base yourself north or south of the Brisbane River, the Queensland capital’s pulsing food and art scenes are within easy reach.

Brisbane’s snaking river is a landmark throughout its central suburbs. On the north bank, the city centre nestles alongside some of Brisbane’s most happening areas for wining and dining. South of the river, leafy residential streets and parklands reveal surprising cultural and sporting attractions. Find your favourite spot for a stay in this fun-loving city.
Where: City centre, South Bank
Central Brisbane is home to some of the city’s oldest buildings as well as some of its most vibrant developments. On a deep bend of the north bank of the river, grand colonial-era buildings now housing museums, shopping malls and offices sit beside futuristic skyscrapers in the city centre. Just across the river, the more relaxed South Bank precinct is home to the bulk of the city’s cultural institutions, with dining and entertainment options aplenty surrounding a lush man-made beach. Linked by the pedestrian-friendly Victoria Bridge, these neighbourhoods are easily explored on foot.Più info
South of the river
Where: West End, Woolloongabba, Kangaroo Point
Surrounding the South Bank precinct, these neighbourhoods feel both residential and eclectic. Large Greek and Vietnamese communities contribute to multicultural restaurants and shops, while weekend markets and live music venues attract visitors through the day and well into the night. If you’re a sporting fanatic or outdoors enthusiast, this area is an ideal base – it’s home to the main sports stadium, the Gabba (Brisbane Cricket Ground), and is a great place to try urban abseiling and rock-climbing.Più info

Dove: Howard Smith Wharves, Fortitude Valley, New Farm
