Take advantage of the mild spring weather to spend a leisurely afternoon cruising down the Brisbane River. Just hop on to one of several cruises originating from South Bank, unwind and spend some time witnessing the beauty of our city from a different perspective.

Should you choose to stay at our holiday apartments at Bridgewater Terraces, you’ll face no problems in taking a river cruise. We’re located on the banks of the Brisbane River itself, and there are plenty of cruise operators near us.

2. Visit a contemporary arts festival

Brisbane is known for hosting some of the world’s best arts festivals. This spring, the 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art is taking place in our city. This festival will celebrate artistic creations from all over the world ranging from as far and wide as Hawaii to Iraq.

The 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art is starting from Saturday, November 24 at the Brisbane Gallery of Modern Art in South Bank. By choosing Bridgewater Terraces as your accommodation, you’ll easily be able to attend this festival.

3. Take your family to a water park

If you’re visiting Brisbane with your family and kids this spring, make sure to take them for a fun day out at Waterworld Central. This water amusement park features a range of slides and pools for you and your family to splash around or relax in. It’s the perfect way to spend quality time with your family, and your kids are sure to love you for it!

Waterworld Central is located at the Sandstone Point Hotel in Bribie Island Road. Bribie Island is located slightly away from Brisbane CBD, so keep aside a full day for this activity.
