Best things to do in Brisbane

With Brisbane's predictable weather - fine one day, so fine the next - it's no surprise that both visitors and locals rate outdoor activities high on the to-do list. And you know the single best thing about that? It costs you nix (or next to nix). Walk a loop around the river - it's free, and apparently a winner at night for the city lights. Or, see the sights from the water with the CityHopper ferry - also free. And then there's the amazing Gallery of Modern Art and Queensland Art Gallery. OK, not exactly outdoor action but with free entry to both, this is a culture fix you definitely can't afford to miss.
