South Bank Swimming and Markets
A day out in Brisbane’s lifestyle and culture precinct, South Bank, is fun for all ages. Soak up the sun and enjoy one of the free swimming areas including the Boat Pool (pictured above), located just behind Stanley Street Plaza. Once you’ve dried off and slipped your shirt and denim shorts on again, you can stroll across to Stanley Street Plaza and browse the Collective Markets. The markets begin Friday night and continue through to Sunday afternoon, hosting a mix of stalls with unique art, vintage fashion and, of course, food (need we say more?!).
A day trip to Coolum, Sunshine Coast
One of our favourite past times, a good old-fashioned road trip. Jump in the car these school holidays and head up to the beautiful Sunshine Coast. Go for a beautiful walk through the picturesque landscape surrounding Mount Coolum, chill out by the beach, or indulge in some retail therapy at the many shops dotted along the beach front! There’s even a waterpark to keep the kids entertained. A day full of activities requires a comfy outfit – we suggest our Luxe Lounge denim shorts and a playful slogan tee.
Kayak on Brisbane River
See the city come to life with a relaxing kayak along the Brisbane River. Soak up amazing city views from the best seat in the house, while fitting in your daily exercise (talk about a win-win!). Tickets are available for Friday and Saturday night sessions with a delicious dinner option available too. Styling tip! Keep your outfit dark just in case you get splashed while kayaking.
