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

First Day Auckland

First Day Auckland
Destination(s): Auckland

This is a good way to get your bearings when you first arrive in Auckland. You'll find the CBD is quite compact but situated on one long hill. Grab a sandwich or pie on your way up to Albert Park for lunch and then maybe something else from K' Road (Karangahape) for dinner to enjoy while watching the late afternoon or evening light on Mt. Eden. It's quite a hike up there, so be prepared. And take your camera! read more about First Day Auckland... Read More
