Ideas come to me when I am out and about in glorious Brisbane taking photos to share with you and that’s how I came up with my idea to share my favourite things to do in Brisbane each month. So today I start with a short list of my favourite things to do this April in Brisbane.
Catch a sunrise
April mornings are cool and crisp and the sun is rising later which means you don’t have to get up super early to catch a glorious Brisbane sunrise. Go on make the effort I’m sure you won’t be dissappointed.
Shop fresh at Jan Powers Farmers Markets
The Jan Powers Farmers Markets in front of the Brisbane Powerhouse, Lamington St Newfarm are on every Saturday of the month from 6 am till 12 noon. Shop local and buy fabulous fresh produce such as these delicious apples from Stanthorpe, flowers, bread, meat, fish, poultry, plants and more. Currently there are 4 local Brisbane Farmers Markets; the Brisbane City Markets, Powerhouse, Manly Farmers Markets and Mitchelton Markets. Four legged furry friends are more than welcome at all Jan Power’s Farmers Markets, except the city.
Stroll under the red lanterns at South Bank Parklands
South Bank Parklands is decorated with strings of red lanterns during April to celebrate the Buddha Birth Day Festival. Take a wonder along Clem Jones Promenade or thru the Grand Arbour under the dazzling red lanterns. By the way the lanterns also look stunning at night and are only dazzling us till 30 April.
Sip Autumn cocktails at Stoke Bar
Stoke Bar, part of Stokehouse Q at South Bank Parklands, is the perfect place to admire the river views while you sip on an Autumn cocktail. This seasonal cocktail range comprises the best produce and is designed to match Brisbane’s subtropical climate whilst capturing the colours and flavours of the season.
Absorb art at GOMA

Indulge in Cake & Bake hot cross buns
