5 Cheap Study Breaks For Brisbane Students

Whether you’ve come halfway across the world to study in Brisbane, or just wandering down the block - make sure you don’t spend all your free time hitting the books! Here's a list of 5 things to do on your uni break.

Gather your new uni squad together and make the most of your semester break, get out and about and explore your new adopted city!

Top 5 things to do in Brisbane on your uni break:

1. SOAK UP THE RAYS AND SUCK ON FROSTY FRUITS AT THE SOUTHBANK PARKLANDS LAGOON (DON’T FORGET YOUR SPF 30+ - SLIP, SLOP, SLAP).

 

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.

 

5. NOW THAT YOU’VE JUST FINISHED THAT WHOLE PACKET OF OREOS AND YOUR FOURTH EXTRA SHOT CARAMEL LATTE IT’S TIME TO DUST OFF YOUR SNEAKERS AND GET PEDALLING! HIRE A BRISSY CITY BIKE FOR A DAY AND EXPLORE THE CITY, AND GET FIT WHILE YOU'RE AT IT
