Top Ten Nightlife in Queensland

Top Ten Nightlife in Queensland
Destination(s): Brisbane

Queensland nightlife is as eclectic and welcoming as the people in the area, so you will find all sorts of places to suit all tastes and pockets. The best are the ones preferred by the locals, we always say, so we made a selection with some beer, jazz, clubbing, tapas and refreshing atmosphere so you can get a feel of the real Queensland nightlife. The Birdie Num Num (not to be mistaken by Birdie Nam Nam, the DJs) is on of the hippest clubs around, with cool young crowds and all sorts of new electronic music playing in the background. There are two essential beer spots, one of which is a Belgian cafe (Belgian Beer Cafe Brussels) and the other a garden at the Victory Hotel. There is also a large and inviting casino, as well as a great Aussie jazz club, the Brisbane Jazz Club. Still not convinced? Try paying a visit to the Queensland Performing Arts Complex and be amazed at the entertainment offer they have. read more about Top Ten Nightlife in Queensland... Read More

Budget Melbourne

Budget Melbourne
Destination(s): Melbourne

There is a cheap yet fun (not to mention delicious) way to experience Melbourne. You might have to give taxis and five star accommodation the flick, but there’s no better way to really get a feel for a city than by exploring on foot, bike and public transport. Lucky for the frugal amongst us that Melbourne’s best culinary experiences aren’t necessarily to be found in the glitz of a table cloth and fine china. Family run bakeries and hole-in-the-wall kitchens are where the real flavors of this city mix it up. Same goes for the contemporary art scene; local hipsters with less money than you run a plethora of free galleries all over the city for your cultural fix. So put your wallet away and get yourself a tram ticket, Melbourne is an easy place to be with your short on cash. read more about Budget Melbourne... Read More
