1. Brisbane Map and Walks

Many of our guests choose to explore Brisbane on foot. This is indeed, a good idea – given that our city is famous for its walkways. By exploring Brisbane on foot, you can experience the beauty of our city at your own leisurely pace. Moreover, it’ll cost you nothing!

Exploring Brisbane’s walkways has never been easier, thanks to the handy Brisbane Map and Walks app. This app features a detailed map of Brisbane and includes some of the best self-guided walks of our city. Download this app to discover some hidden gems and world-famous attractions of Brisbane.

Brisbane is also famous for its world-class network of public transportation. From trains, trams, buses and ferries, our city has it all. As such, you really don’t need a personal vehicle for exploring Brisbane – public transportation options are plentiful.

To find all information related to Brisbane’s public transportation, download the Go Brisbane app. This app features everything from timetables to route calculation and real-time traffic updates. Moreover, this app is designed for offline use, so you don’t need to waste your data on your Brisbane holiday.

3. Airtrain

The Airtrain is Brisbane’s efficient rail link, which connects the airport, the city and the Gold Coast. I’ve noticed that many of our guests use the Airtrain to travel from the airport to the city. It is a cost-effective and quick means of getting to your destination once you arrive – or vice versa when you leave.

The Airtrain app is everything that you need to find timetable information related to our rail link. This app offers comprehensive information, including a list of all stations and full timetables.

4. BCEC Live

The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre is a favourite with guests. Various cultural events, meetups and exhibitions are held at this venue. I highly recommend you to add this venue to your Brisbane holiday itinerary.

You can also download the official BCEC Live app, which offers detailed information related to this venue. This app includes floor maps of the BCEC, what events are currently on, getting around the area, cafes and restaurants in the vicinity and much more. 

5. Brissy Bars

I’m sure you’ve heard that Brisbane has a bustling nightlife and entertainment scene. If fact, the nightlife and entertainment options are so vast that you’ll be hard-pressed in deciding where to go!

But don’t worry – simply download the Brissy Bars app for all information related to Brisbane’s nightlife and entertainment scene. This app explores all options, offers customised search and provides detailed information on venues. This app will certainly help you find the best of Brisbane’s thriving entertainment and nightlife scene.

6. Brisbane Kids

A large number of our guests are families. Brisbane offers several attractions for kids and I’ve always had guests ask me what the best family-friendly destinations are.

If you’re planning a Brisbane holiday with your family, I’m sure you have the same question. You can simply download the Brisbane Kids app, which is the official guide to the child-friendly destinations of our city. From events to activities and things to do, you’ll find all information you need in this app.
