When to fly to Brisbane

Peak Season: December through February serve as Australia’s summer time, with the highest temperatures rooting in January at around 27 degrees Celsius. Although rainfall is at its highest point, your travel to Brisbane won’t be hindered by downpour or drizzle, because showers quickly clear up and give way to sunshine.

Off-peak Season: June through August become milder in the winter months with temperatures ranging from high teens to low 20s. But luckily as temperatures drop, so does the rainfall, making your Brisbane flight an easy one, no matter what the season.


Brisbane is bursting with things to do. Queensland's capital is sexy and sophisticated, diverse and full of life. Visitors boarding flights to Brisbane are on their way to great food, great wine, and the best in arts and entertainment. It’s hard to imagine a city with this much energy is also home to a quiet beaches and rainforests.

In the heart of Brisbane, tourists will find a mix of old and new – colonial buildings stand next to glass towers, and local beer gardens look out to the city’s botanical gardens. Brisbane is flanked by islands to the east and mountains to the west offering travellers the best of both worlds in one city.

Travellers booking flights to Brisbane will be delighted by the endless options available and at decent prices, too. Food, accommodations and entertainment are affordable to even the most budget-conscience traveller.

Brisbane climate

The Pacific location between the Gold coast and the Sunshine coast swaps seasons with what the United States is used to. Your cheap flight to Brisbane will settle you on the east coast of Australia in a cozy subtropical climate in opposition to ours. Daily average temperatures are between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius.

Getting around Brisbane

Brisbane is a lovely city to walk in, especially with the 21 km floating River Walk that includes paths, roads, bridges and parks along the Brisbane River. When your feet get tired, bike along the river on a track running from the City Botanic Gardens to the University of Queensland. You can also get around on the network of trains, buses and ferries operated by TransLink. Suburban rail is quick and efficient and the ferries stop at many interesting sights. Buses run regularly on weekdays, but you may have to wait a bit longer on the weekend. If you rent a car, you’ll most likely be able to park at your hotel or motel for free. Plan your route ahead of time so you can manage Brisbane’s one-way streets better. You can find taxis at stands located outside the Treasury on George Street, on Edward Street and at either end of Queen Street Mall.

Brisbane insider information

  • Botanic Gardens: The naturally elegant botanical gardens have four main attractions: Bamboo Grove, Weeping Fig Avenue, Mangrove Boardwalk, and River Stage. In Bamboo Grove, 23 species of bamboo co-exist to commemorate the vast amount lost in 1937. Weeping Fig Avenue, established in the 1870s serves as a beautifully organic barrier between the gardens and Queens Park. Stroll the 380 acres of Mangrove Boardwalk to experience an environmental design. The boardwalk itself is literally stuck in the mud, relying solely on the mud’s suction to keep it in place. River Stage, a place known to draw thousands of people for concerts is a sure spot to make your travel to Brisbane a memorable one.

Forty-five cafes and restaurants, 600 shops, and two cinemas make it the perfect place to indulge on what you saved from your cheap flight to Brisbane. With all the there is to offer, it’s no wonder the centre is deemed as Brisbane’s retail and entertainment hub.
  • Treasury Casino: Energize your travel to Brisbane by packing a punch with a full day between the Queen Street Mall and a night at the Treasure Casino, right around the corner on George Street. The 19th-century building houses 1,100 game machines, 100 tables, five restaurants, and seven bars filled with live bands jamming on a nightly basis. Open 24 hours a day, this find is worth the fortune.
