Make the most of your trip.


How many things can you tick off the Brisbane Bucket List on your CMC Rocks QLD adventure? From the iconic Story Bridge and popular South Bank precinct to catching a gig in a historic hangar or exploring Brisbane via the award winning venues on offer, here are the must-do experiences everyone needs to have in and around this stunning city. 

Keen to explore beyond Brisbane city? Mulgumpin / Moreton Island is just off the coast of Brisbane. This protected sand island is known for its beaches and steep dunes, like Mount Tempest. Head inland to Scenic Rim, home to ancient UNESCO World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests and renowned for being a popular, year-round destination for foodies.


Whether you're wanting to delve deeper into the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, meet Indigenous artists or use your tastebuds to discover this ancient culture, these are the must-do Indigenous experiences within 100km of Brisbane.

If you’re in Brisbane city, BlackCard Cultural Tours will show you around the South Brisbane precinct and share stories about the incredible First Nations public art. At the neighbouring Birrunga Gallery & Dining, you’ll catch the latest exhibitions by resident Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and experience modern Australian cuisine, with a native twist.

Heading out to the regions? Book a Nyanda Cultural Tour to see another side of Brisbane’s Nudgee Waterholes. A smoke ceremony; tasting seasonal bush foods, weaving and ochre-making demonstrations are all part of the experience. 


Book in a Llama Walk at The Llama Farm (home to Queensland’s largest herd of Llama’s) or stop into Summer Land Camels to experience Australia’s largest working camel dairy. Book into a tour at The Workshops Rail Museum, located at the site where the very first train to ever run in Queensland set off from. Need to refuel? In the heart of Ipswich’s Entertainment hub is the Pumpyard Bar and Brewery or head over to the award-winning Imbibis Craft Distillery and book in for a gin and spirt tasting. Check out another 15 local Ipswich attractions at 20 Reasons to Stay A Little Longer.


Arguably the most romantic date night would be at Spicers Hidden Vale in the Ipswich town of Grandchester with dinner at the hatted Homage restaurant.

Take full advantage of the resort pool, enjoy a market garden tour and cheese tasting in the cellar, or just relax and enjoy the view!
