Get out of your comfort zone and explore the adventurous side of Brisbane with these fun activities!

Getting out of your comfort zone doesn’t mean you have to leave the comfort of Brisbane – having a day trip in your own backyard can be just as exciting and adventurous as taking a trip to somewhere new!

If you’re a big kid at heart or just want to shake things up by trying a new activity, check out the Brisbane experiences you may not have tried yet…

1. Conquer the Story Bridge

If you’re not afraid of a challenge or heights give the Story Bridge Adventure Climb a go, better yet if you are afraid conquer those fears! Scaling the 1940’s icon will take your breath away and give you a great view of the city and even a glimpse of Moreton Bay.

2. Race your mates

No I am not talking about becoming a hoon, but rev heads are encouraged if you decide to go head to head on the go-karting track. There are two tracks in Brisbane, one indoor at Eagle Farm and one outdoors at Kingston, so despite the weather conditions you can still fill your need, the need for…speed.

3. Cool down

Ice Skating is a popular option during a hot summer to beat the heat. It’s the only place you won’t look strange by rugging up and spending more time on the floor than standing. You can learn how to master those wobbly legs and have a social outing with friends in two Brisbane locations- Acacia Ridge and Boondall.

4. Climb Kangaroo Point

Experience a stunning rock climb under a careful eye of an instructor at the Kangaroo Point cliffs. The 20 million year old cliffs offer a 20 metre high climb with the Brisbane River view at your back. Make your way to the top and abseil down in under 20 seconds.

5. Float down the river

Glide along the winding Brisbane River in a kayak on a guided kayaking adventure tour. You can see the city from a unique angle during the day or at night! You can even rent the kayaks out on your own once you’re feeling more confident.
