We’ll be blunt: If you’re searching for a quaint town in the countryside with only a handful of people and some kangaroos running about, Brisbane isn’t for you.
But luckily for us, the excitement of a big city like Brisbane is exactly what you’re after. You want to holiday in a place where life moves pretty fast. According to the great philosopher Ferris Bueller, this is the sort of place where if you don’t stop and look around for a while, you might miss it.
Flights to Brisbane will land at Brisbane Airport (BNE), 17km from the central business district. From there you can hop on the Airtrain or ride the shuttle bus to downtown. But if you feel like driving yourself around, book car hire and be on your way.
If you’re on one of the Brisbane flights landing in the morning, make your way to one of the breakfast cafes along William Street. A flat white latte with a bowl of brown rice porridge with hazelnuts is a perfect way to start the day.
Do you know what the afternoons are good for? Checking out the animals at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, that’s what. If you’ve ever dreamed of making friends with these cuddly marsupials, this is the place for you. Can you imagine how many Instagram followers you’ll get when you post a selfie with a koala?
If you’re getting into town after dark, drop your luggage at your Brisbane accommodation and then hightail it to the Fortitude Valley area. This is where many of the city’s hippest clubs and live music venues are located. Jazz, hip-hop, punk rock, whatever makes your toes tap, you’ll find it here.
One way to fit in with the local population is to shop with them at the South Bank Markets, held every Sunday. You can find everything here from high-end fashion products to cheeky souvenirs and fresh produce.

Here’s an insider tip: Monday is typically the cheapest day to fly! Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2021, we found that flights departing on a Monday generally had the lowest average price, closely followed by flights on a Saturday. You might want to think twice about flying on a Thursday though; generally, our data showed that it had the highest average ticket price.
Guess what? It turns out that early in the week is the best time to score the cheapest plane tickets. Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2021, we found that flights purchased on a Monday had the lowest airfares on average. Booking your plane ticket on the weekend also seems to score pretty good deals. However, airfares purchased on a Friday generally have a higher than average ticket value, so you might want to prepare your budget if you’re booking on that day.
When comparing airfares booked through Wotif in 2021, our data shows February is one of the cheapest months to fly. On the other hand, the month of December can be one of the most expensive times to travel, with the highest average ticket price, so it’s best to get in early if December is your preferred travel month.
Trying to figure out how early you should book your flight? It’s possible to start comparing international airfares on Wotif up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to Wotif’s 2021 flight demand trends, you can bag a bargain with some of the cheapest airfares appearing just 1 week prior to travel.
