Holidays don’t have to cost the earth – it’s free to find a place on the sand and catch a few rays, swim and relax at South Bank’s Streets Beach, browse a weekend market, or pack a picnic and head to the Brisbane Botanic Gardens or the bushwalking trails of Mt Coot-tha. The child-friendly Queensland Art Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art offer free entry, while a small entrance fee gets you into the interactive Sciencentre.
