Weekend Guide

Plan the perfect weekend at the Hilton Brisbane hotel, situated on the Queen Street Mall in the heart of an exciting and energetic city.

Saturday

Morning

  • Brisbane Domestic and International Airport is approximately 15 km from Brisbane. A taxi ride will cost about $50. Hilton Brisbane is situated on 190 Elizabeth Street. After you check-in, visit Vintaged Bar + Grill for a delicious buffet breakfast to kick-start your day.
  • Then head to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary - rated one of the "Top 10 Zoos in the World" by AOL. Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane is the world's first and largest koala sanctuary, with over 130 koalas. Cuddle a koala anytime, hand feed kangaroos and encounter a large variety of Aussie wildlife.
  • To get there, we recommend taking a cruise up the river with Miramar Cruises. The cruise aboard Brisbane's most famous river boat, MV Mirimar, takes you 19 kms (12 miles) upstream through some of the city's most attractive suburbs and most interesting wildlife habitats.  You'll have an opportunity to get a close up view of a unique inner-city colony of fruit bats.

Afternoon

  • Take the Miramar Cruise from Lone Pine to the Cultural Centre Pontoon at South Bank Parklands. Go for a walk through the Parklands, complete with restaurants, cafes, beach and views over the city. Walk up to River Quay for a bite to eat at iconic restaurant Stokehouse Brisbane. Walking time is approximately 10 - 15 minutes along the river or through the parklands. Be sure to try the signature dessert The Bombe – frozen white chocolate parfait, strawberry sorbet, and toasted meringue!
  • Walk back through South Bank Parklands to the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) and Queensland Art Gallery (QAG)  approximately 20 minute walk along the river or through the parklands. Queensland's premier visual arts institution, the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), connects people and art through a dynamic program of Australian and international exhibitions that showcase works from a diverse range of historical and contemporary artists.

Evening

  • Head back to Hilton Brisbane by walking across the Victoria Bridge to the Queen Street Mall. Walk down the mall and the hotel will be on your right - approximately 15 minute walk.
  • After a day of walking around Brisbane, start the evening enjoying a cocktail in Vintaged Bar. Select a cocktail from the vast menu or have the team whip up something completely different!
  • The head across to the hotel restaurant and take a seat on the custom designed chefs table. Enjoy peppered conversations with the chefs across the grill, whilst they prepare you for a culinary experience. Select your own meal or let the Vintaged team make their recommendations - we highly recommend starting with a selection of share dishes, followed by the slow cooked lamb shoulder with dauphinoise potatoes and house made mint sauce to share for two.
  • Right in the heart of the restaurant is our glass-walled Wine Room, housing an impressive 1,000 bottle collection. It favours established Australian wines, but also incorporates a small allocation of premium wines from boutique wineries from around Queensland, Australia and New Zealand.  Guests are invited to wander freely around The Wine Room to explore our region’s finest wines with expert assistance from our dedicated team.
  • If there is room for dessert - a throwback to childhood, we recommend the popular Vintaged ice-cream sundae.

Sunday

Morning

  • Wake up bright and early and go for a walk to the Brisbane Botanic Gardens. The Gardens are less than 10 minutes from the hotel and attractions at the Gardens include Bamboo Grove, Weeping Fig Avenue, Riverstage, Ornamental Ponds and more. The Botanic Gardens self-guided walk enables guests to explore the park at their own pace. Simply visit the Brisbane City Council website to download the self-guided map, alternatively see Concierge.
  • Post a morning walk through the gardens, stroll along the river to Eagle Street Pier for a spot of breakfast or brunch on the river. We recommend Australian celebrity chef Matt Moran's River Bar and Kitchen, which arguably has one of the best views of the river and iconic Story Bridge. 

Afternoon

  • Make your way back to the Queen Street Mall for a spot of shopping. Queen Street Mall is Queensland’s premier shopping destination, offering over 1,000 stores, four vibrant shopping precincts, six shopping centres, over 250 local and international designers and the State’s largest collection of flagship stores and unique boutiques you won’t find anywhere else.
  • Take a break from all that shopping and stop for coffee and cake or an afternoon cocktail. Located just off the Queen Street Mall, tucked down Lower Burnett Lane is Brew Café. A kooky space, Brew makes a mean coffee and serves an array or delicious cakes. Alternatively try one of Brew's cocktails ranging from dessert cocktails to twisted classics.  Brew also serves a selection of share plates and light meals if you're feeling peckish.

Evening

  • Head back to the hotel by walking through the Queen Street Mall and taking the lifts from Wintergarden Shopping Centre straight up to the hotel. End the weekend with dinner at Brisbane's iconic lifestyle precinct James Street - located in Fortitude Valley. James Street is 5 minutes in a taxi from the hotel and has rapidly become Brisbane’s foremost retail and lifestyle precinct.
  • We recommend having dinner at the multi-award winning Gerard's Bistro. Gerard’s Bistro is among the latest stylish restaurant instalments to hit the fashionable James Street precinct.  We provide a relaxed environment for an enjoyable dining experience. Gerard’s head chef Ben Williamson takes his menu inspiration from southern Europe, the Middle East and northern Africa.
