Free things to do in Brisbane.Brisbane for the budget-conscious

As much as we love to travel, it's not always the cheapest hobby. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to keep those costs down.

You can start by picking an affordable accommodation option in Brisbane that will still give you that fantastic holiday vibe, just without the really top end price tag!

And once you're there, you can pick and choose the activities and events you want to get involved with. Some will cost you a little money, but in between those absolute must-dos, you can fill your time with fabulous and free adventures.

When you're in Brisbane, one of the most scenic places you can visit is the Botanic Gardens. Take a walk, take a picnic, take a ball to throw around - you'll get to spend some time outside in nature and you won't have to spend a cent.

You might even be in the city during a weekend, in which case then you could head along to Customs House for a free concert, which is held every Sunday at 11:30am.

Also, any budget-savvy tourist will know to head to the Museum of Brisbane, where you can spend virtually endless hours pondering the awe-inspiring and incredible exhibitions that are on show.

Similarly, you can get your fix of history at Brisbane City Hall, which was opened in 1930. The hall made national news in March 2011 when restoration work uncovered a streetscape under the floor of the auditorium that dated back to the mid 1800s. You can get up close and personal with the history and see some of the restoration work.

Besides, one of the best things you can do in any new city comes free - and that's simply to explore. There's nothing quite like taking a wander in a new town to get a true feel of the culture and vibrancy of a city, so much sure you have comfortable shoes on and get out there!
