If you're staying Mantra on the Quay you'll find there's plenty on offer in the heart of Brisbane city. Jump onto the CityHopper Ferry and ride to some great destinations like the Maritime Museum, North Quay and South Bank where you can enjoy the parklands, lagoon and man-made beach, as well as the Queensland Performing Arts Centre. The Botanical Gardens and Roma Street Parklands are stunning anytime of the year and if you're after an indoor activity, the Treasury Casino situated within two grand heritage buildings is within close reach.

If you're in for a bit of shopping, wander down to the Queen Street Mall for a huge selection of specialty retail stores, fashion boutiques and entertainment galore. Your shopping spree continues at Fortitude Valley, where designer fashion meets chic and all the latest fashion trends are on showcase.
