Where are the best places in Brisbane to take photos?


There’s many pretty locations to take pretty Brisbane photos. Even if you’re on a road trip rather than shooting photos for a hobby, there’s loads of spots near the CBD and inner suburbs.

Got any favourite observation decks or unusual places that are ideal for taking photos in Brisbane? Share your faves here for folks visiting on holiday or local residents.


  1. I agree that Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is a great place for photos especially if you want to photograph native animals. The light in the late afternoon is beautiful.

    For city photos, try Wilson Outlook a little park on Bowen Terrace, New Farm which has uninterrupted views of the Story Bridge and City. The Story Bridge itself is a good spot for photos too. The City Botanic Gardens have lots of good vantage points for photography.

  2. there’s a neat hill on Swann Rd in Taringa that overlooks the city – great for taking night shots

  3. The best place to do this in Brisbane is Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary where they have a whole paddock full of kangaroos and wallabies. You can hand feed them and most don’t mind a pat. Great Place to capture the lovely Kangaroos.
