Restaurant near Gabba

by branx

Hi all,
I will be in Brisbane on the 29th May for the footy and was wondering where could we go for dinner before the footy that is walking distance to The Gabba.
We enjoy most types of cuisine...Thai, italian, seafood, modern. The only stipulation is we must be able to walk to the Gabba in 15mins.

The Australian National Hotel is very close but I would also expect it to be very crowded on a game day.
867 Stanley St
Woolloongabba QLD 4102
(07) 3391 3964

You could also try the Pieapple Hotel which is a little further to walk but does have excellent steaks and things.
706 Main St
Kangaroo Point QLD 4169
(07) 3393 1111

There is also a Thai Restaurant on the corner of Logan Road across the street, but I don't know the name. In the same street there are a number of bistros, but although I have eaten at all of them, I wouldn't recommend any of them because they are horribly overpriced for a little bit of food in the middle of a huge plate. These are 1889 Enotica, Bistrot Bistro and the Pearl Cafe.

Travel Tips for Brisbane

How to meet locals

by Beach_Girl_Aust

Not sure if this is everybodies thing, but when I travel I love getting to know locals.
Normally people suggest to go to clubs for night time activities. But as everybody knows, you can bearly hear yourself think than alone talk to locals.

So I suggest going to one of the bars/ pubs in Brissy. They are SO laid back and locals are always willing to play a game of pool with you.

here is my fave (but doesn't have pool tables but still is a great hang out):
183 George Street
City 4000
Tel: [07] 3012 9121

Jorge is best defined by what it isn't. It's not a nightclub, yet DJ's spill tunes on three levels day & night. It's not a restaurant yet the food and service has been praised by critics from all over. It isn't a cafe' but the coffee is barista quality

Birdie Num Num is also one of the best, where students, professionals, backpacker mix together. There is something to do at this club any day of the week

Birdie Num Num
11 Gipps Street Fortitude Valley
Brisbane QLD

'The Zoo' is another fave. Sometimes there are awesome live bands here. Check it out at

When you go shopping in Australia at a lot of Grocery & some department stores, you pay for your goods and get the docket (receipt) Next time, have a look on the back of the docket for we have what is called "Shop - A - Docket" You will find all kinds of discounted services, from games of Indoor bowling, free cups of coffee, cheap Pizzas, discounted fuel and lots more. Usually there are great travel bargains, so next time, have a look before you chuck it away, you may save yourself some money!

Bundy R Bear - the big fella and his drink!

by thedouglas

One of Australia's unique drinks has now become associated with a fairly unique advertising campaign - pairing Bundaberg (fondly called Bundy) Rum and the Wallabies - with a loveable character called Bundy R Bear - a 7 foot polar bear.

This campaign has been going for a few years, and there is now an automatic association between all three really - the bear, who we have come to love, the drink and the best football team in the world!

Bundy has entertained us with his wit and tricks in the past, and the newest campaign takes on a resonsible as well as mischievous edge. He has even been a "drop bear" in the quest to enhance his mate's female impressing!

Enter Bundy's mates new promotion -

Jonno - he doesn't drink and drive
Robbo - avoids agro - which has been associated with Bundy Rum for overindulgence and.....
Brett - doesn't hit on his mate's ex-girlfriend!

The company has even conducted a "Fine Form" contest - where fans and customers vote for the "best" character.

The underlying theme is responsibility and good matesmanship, as well as promoting both the drink and the Wallabies.

Its a great drink, and I have enjoyed it throughout my adult life with a range of mixers. Don't come to Australia (only place in the world where you can buy it) without having at least a Bundy and coke or a Bundy and Dry! My adolescent favourite was Bundy, raspberry and lemonade!!! Aaaarrrgh!

Tabbil-ban Dhagun Mangrove Boardwalk

by JohanIsWeg

Long maligned as sterile environments, mangroves are now acknowledged as a very important inter-tidal eco-system. The raised boardwalk of Tabbil-dan Dhagun offers walkers an excellent view of Avicennia marina, the most widespread mangrove in Australia. The grey mangrove is a hardy beast, surviving with both high and low salt levels. The boardwalk also affords views of Nudgee Creek.

The boardwalk is accessible from the car park at the end of O'Quinn Street (just past Nudgee Beach) and within easy driving distance of Boondall and Shorncliffe.

One hour trip #3 - Mt Tamborine

by tiabunna

If you enjoy sub-tropical forests and the parkland at Southbank and Roma Street is too manicured for your tastes, why not go and see the real thing at Mt Tamborine? It is a mountain area to the south of Brisbane, reached by road via Beenleigh or Beaudesert. Tamborine has many areas of National Parks with sub-tropical rainforest and interesting scenery, as well as restaurants and shops catering for the tourist traffic. The drive will take about an hour in each direction.

You can read more about it in my Mt Tamborine VT page.
