Getting out and about

Situated in the city centre with extensive views of the river and the city, City Backpackers HQ is the place to be! In walking distance from the best shops, bars and restaurants and new entertainment precincts; making it the perfect place to catch a movie, have a drink with friends or buy those much needed essentials.

Take a short stroll or ride along the river walking paths and bikeways. Not your thing? Then catch some rays at the famous South Bank beach and sample the delights of the many weekend markets Brisbane has to offer.

After an adventurous day exploring the area, quench your thirst at your local “The Fatt Wombat” then head to Caxton Street, laid back West End or the clubbing scene of ‘The Valley’ for some of Brisbane’s best nightlife.
