For those who have just moved into long term accommodation in Brisbane, there's plenty of things to keep you occupied at the weekend.

From artistic, creative, cultural and sporting events in Brisbane to the city's vibrant nightlife, you'll find yourself spoiled for choice when it comes to leisure activities in the Queensland capital - your only problem will be fitting it all in!

Mantra has plenty of holiday accommodation suitable for both short term and long term stays, with Mantra South Bank located conveniently in the city's arts and entertainment hub.

To help you make the most of your stay in Brisbane, here are a few local secrets to get clued in on.

A night on the town

Looking for a great spot to grab a few drinks with friends? Irish Murphy's is a quintessential Irish pub right in the city centre. It also doubles as a great venue for live music, with three bars spanning several levels.

On the other hand, if you're looking for a more relaxed atmosphere with some delicious food to boot, drop into the Plough Inn's beer garden or head over to the South Bank Surf Club.

Arts and culture

Brisbane has a lot to offer in the way of culture. The Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) is just minutes away from Mantra South Bank and always has an exciting lineup in store.

While the modern vibe of the city might have you believing otherwise, there's also a lot of history to enjoy in Brisbane as well. Stop by the Albert Street Uniting Church, ANZAC Square or Customs House to explore some heritage-listed landmarks.

Treat your taste buds

There's nothing like a full stomach to get you feeling happy, and many of Brisbane's best eateries and wine bars can be found along Little Stanley Street, Grey Street or River Quay.

Take a trip around the world with the cuisine from these dining precincts, from the contemporary Mediterranean flavours of Stokehouse to the classic French dining at Piaf.
