What are your favourite free events on in Brisbane and free, fun things to do?


  1. Zumba at New Farm Park on Saturday mornings. Gold coin donation, so almost free. Fresh air, fun & fitness.

  2. Brisbane city library – great book and mag selection. Latin dancing in city Library square on Fri nights

  3. the Brisbane festival this year has been great – if you haven’t seen the light show on the river next to QPAC then you need to check it out – it’s amazing!

  4. Every Monday night at 7:30 the folks at Impro Mafia jump up on stage at the Jubilee Hotel and help their beginner players put on a comedy show. The mix of new and veteran players really creates a great vibe. It’s really friendly and lots of fun.

  5. Definitely the food festivals for me. Indonesian street food festival today and regional flavours tomorrow woohoo
