2. GET BACK TO NATURE WITH A SCENIC HIKING TRIP, SPRINGBROOK NATIONAL PARK IS JUST A 2 HOUR DRIVE FROM BRISBANE CITY. THE BREATHTAKING SCENERY IS WORTH THE HIKE ALONE.

 

3. CHECK OUT THE FREE EXHIBITIONS AT THE SCIENCENTRE OR ART SHOWS AT GOMA – THAT COUNTS AS STUDY RIGHT?

4. GIVE THE RAMEN A REST AND VENTURE OUT TO THE FARMERS MARKETS ACROSS THE CITY. YOUR NEW FOUND MASTERCHEF SKILLS WILL HAVE YOUR ROOMIES SUPER JELLY.
