Gabbi J's Sumer Bucket List

Gabbi J's Sumer Bucket List

We. Love. Summer.

There’s not really anything about summer that we don’t like - it’s mango season, you can go to the beach whenever you want, the abundance of flowy, floral tops, and iced coffee… Need we say more? And what better place in the world (this is a discussion I’m willing to have!) to spend Summer than in Australia!

More specifically, Brisbane ☀️

So, we put together a bit of a Summer Bucket List of  things we want to do around Brisbane before the dreaded cold weather sets in again.

  1. Climb as many mountains as we can (some of our favourites are Mt Coolum and White Rock)

  2. Catch Elf at the Southbank Christmas Cinema

  3. Swim at Gardner Falls

  4. Celebrate New Years Eve at Falls Festival in Byron Bar

  5. Get that Insta-worth Sunflower Field shot at the Southern Downs

  6. Gather the squad and watch a movie at the Yatala Drive-in (BYO snacks)

  7. Walk across to King Island from Wellington Point

  8. Play tourist by going on a tour of Brisbane City

  9. Have a rainbow latte from Piggy Back Cafe

  10. Check out our favourite tennis players at the Brisbane International before we watch them on the main stage at the Australian Open in January!

  11. Go camping at Straddie

  12. Enjoy a cheese platter put together by the amazing Cheese Pleasers

  13. Have the cities BEST Mango gelato

  14. Go indoor rock climbing at Crank

  15. Have a picnic at Burleigh Heads

  16. Enjoy an ice cold drink at the newest openings at Howard Smith Wharves

  17. Pat kangaroos and koalas at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

  18. Relax by the water at River Quay, with an Italian fiesta from Popolo

  19. Do a few Park Runs at our local park, or through South Bank

  20. Spend a bit too long at the beach (anywhere between Caloundra and Tweed Heads)

Get your friends together, buy a picnic basket, fill up your car, and discover what our incredible state has to offer this Summer! Just remember to load up on sunscreen (Australia’s sun is harsh), drink plenty of water (between crisp ciders from James Squire and wine tastings at Mt Nathan Winery), and drive safe!
