Brisbane is a city of huge beauty and huge activity. There are art galleries to peruse, libraries to visit and shops, restaurants and cafés to spend vast quantities of time in, but nothing says Australia more than getting outside and experiencing some of the thrilling activities that we have on offer in our fair city.
Try cycling, you could go for a leisurely cycle along the beach front, or try some mountain biking in Cornubia Forest park. The river offers a range of fun things to do, with kayaking and canoeing on the water, or jogging, skating or roller blading at the water’s edge.
Brisbane is a city for walking and it offers a large range of hikes for the aspiring rambler. Take your pick from a rainforest, river or wetland walk, or simply take it easy and walk around the bay or city.
Once you’ve pushed yourself to your limits with some physical activity, there is no better way to relax than a massage. For a massage with a difference try Thai massage Brisbane. A Thai massage differs from your conventional massage in that it is more physical, rigorous and takes place with your clothes on. Receivers are asked to lie on a mattress on the floor rather than a massage table. Being on the floor gives the both participants the space to work, the postures and techniques that are part of the massage. Thai massage uses yoga throughout, with the masseuse, using hands and feet to move the body into poses and then gently stretching and pulling the body to release tension. Acupressure and reflexology are also used, so pressing and pushing movements over the body, feet and handsare the norm.
Fully relaxed? Then head out for some food. Brisbane is a multicultural city and you can find up to thirty-five different cuisines on offer. Whilst most of the up market restaurants can be found in the CBD, there are some hidden gems if you take a trip off the beaten track and hunt out some of the lesser known places. Try the city suburbs ofInala, Darra, Sunnybank and Moorooka for some inspiration.
