Getting There Quattro on Astor is located approximately 19km from Brisbane airport and is easily accessible by bus or taxi. Central station is just a few minutes-walk. Astor Terrace can be accessed off Wharf Street or Upper Edward Street

Things To Do There are so many things to see and do in Brisbane. At the top of the list is the Southbank area, with its man-made beaches and lagoons, giant TV screens, markets and museums and the two botanic gardens are a must see. There's plenty of shopping to be done in the Queen Street mall and Fortitude Valley ('The Valley') is home to some of the best nightlife and band culture.

A good way to get your bearings when you first arrive is to explore the city by foot, by river cruise or by a speedy ferry. Take in the sights and discover why the river is so central to Brisbane life. For a wider view, take a champagne breakfast balloon flight over the city, or join a day bus or 4WD tour.

For the outdoors types, head out to sea on a fishing charter, or set sail on a sailing tour or cruise of Moreton Bay. And exploring nearby North Stradbroke and Moreton Island's beaches by 4WD is a must.

Things you should try:

The 'Gabba Cricket Ground
South Stradbroke Island
Tangalooma
The Queensland Museum
Customs House
St Johns Cathedral
Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
Mt Coot-tha Lookout
Queensland Maritime Museum
South Bank Parklands
Australian Woolshed
Queensland Cultural Centre
XXXX Brew house
National Trust of Queensland
