Brisbane has an epic line-up of major sporting events and thrilling recreational activities to get your blood pumping.
Fast becoming Australia’s sporting capital, Brisbane is at the forefront of live sporting events. Hear the crowd roar at an international rugby showdown, catch a cricket test match at The Gabba, or feel the passion and marvel at extreme sporting showdowns at Suncorp Stadium.
If you’d rather experience sport than watch it, head to Kangaroo Point and take in the view as you abseil 20m down the 20-million-year-old cliffs. See Brisbane’s city skyline from a kayak as you paddle your way around the winding bends of the river or experience Brisbane from above on the Story Bridge Adventure Climb. If you prefer your outdoor recreation on the ground, walk, run, cycle, or rollerblade along the Brisbane Riverwalk, spanning over 20km.
