Things are heating up here in Brisbane, and with the Christmas holidays looming closer, we suggest you try and get through this list while you still can!

SEE THIS: The Jacaranda

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Don’t let those allergies stop you from making your way out in Brisbane to see the Jacaranda in full bloom (and to get those perfect instagram shots). New Farm Park, Mt Cootha Botanic Gardens and obviously, Jacaranda Park at Yeronga are a few of the best places to see them in bloom.

DO THIS: Boho Luxe Markets – Old Brisbane Museum

Over three days, the Old Brisbane Museum will be hosting their popular Boho Luxe Markets. Immerse yourself in earthy tones, beachy vibes and a whole lot of bohemian style! Here you can find sustainable and ethically sourced brands in fashion, homewares and more. Friday 12th – Sunday 14th November.

TASTE THIS: Il Molo – Bulimba

If you haven’t wandered into Bulimba and found yourself at Il Molo for a lavender spritz or their aperitivo special, then it is safe to say you are missing out. Having recently launched their new menu you can find some of the best quality pizzas and pastas (gnocchi anyone?).

DRINK THIS: Wine Experience – Paddington (Rosalie Village)

In the picturesque and historical inner-city suburb of Paddington is where you will find your next wine experience. Take your time browsing the wines on offer or have a tasting. The Wine experience staff are passionate and knowledgeable who can help you find or try something you are sure to love.

VISIT THIS: Victoria Golf Complex

The putt putt courses here are still fun and challenging all at once, the only difference at the moment, are all the pumpkins and spider webs everywhere! Turning it into a spooky little Halloween town, the whole family is sure to enjoy themselves.
