What are some great day trips from Brisbane?


We all enjoy taking day trips from Brisbane on occasion. When you’re planning for a day trip, do you normally plan a road trip, a walking tour or something else?

How do you get there – do you attempt to get in your car from Brisbane CBD, get a train from Brisbane or another method? Where do you go – a wine tour or tours to the Gold Coast?

  1. Agree with Maleny. Also maybe include Kenilworth. I just love that area. Also a loop from Mt Glorious, through Kilcoy and back down through Samsomvale, very much worth it!! Great day’s drive and excellent for photos!

  2. My favourite is catching the little ferry boat to Coochie Island for a quiet swim, a picnic lunch and a relaxing walk around the island.
