    Sport & Recreation

    We love our sport. From home-grown rugby league clashes, to cricket at the famous Gabba ground or the action of the Brisbane International tennis. If you’d rather play sport than watch it, head to Kangaroo Point and hold your breath as you abseil 20m down the 20-million-year-old cliffs in just 20 seconds, or rock climb to the top. See Brisbane from a kayak as you paddle your way around every bend of the river, or see it from above on the Story Bridge Adventure Climb. Walk, run, cycle or rollerblade along more than 20km of the Riverwalk, or spend the day swimming and snorkelling at nearby Moreton or North Stradbroke Islands.

    Highlights

    Keep restless teenagers entertained these school holidays with this list of our favourite activities to get teens off the couch and off your back.

    Make the most of Brisbane’s 283 sunny days per year and soak up the great outdoors out on the water.

    Take the road less travelled and explore the hidden pockets of nature and history surrounding Brisbane on one of the many scenic drives in the region.

    Grab a bike, get outdoors and chase that exhilarating feeling as you career down dirt tracks, along mountain ridges and through sun-dappled valleys. Mountain biking is as addictive as it sounds and there are plenty of hidden spots throughout the Greater Brisbane area to explore.

    Set sail across crystal blue waters in Moreton Bay and into the South Pacific. Sailing is the perfect way to strengthen wobbly sea legs in Brisbane's permanent summer climate.
