Nice city for shopping and going out.
Though I was told beforehand that Brisbane is not worth staying for too long I really liked the cities calm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. It's perfect for shopping, going out for dinner or drinks and also offers many other things to fill your day with, cheap cinemas, museums, musicals, city lagoon, free Wifi in the city. The people were insanely friendly and helpful. I spent almost a week there and never ran out of things to do and see.
Insider Tip:Cineplex, e.g. in Southbank (tickets around 6-8$)
