Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and it’s becoming a real ‘must see’ location in Australia and is now rivaling Sydney and Melbourne for its cosmopolitan vibe (not to mention our weather is much better!) Brisbane is the business hub of Queensland but that doesn’t mean we don’t have loads of fun – there’s lots to do in the city, or venture our further to a waterfall or swimming hole, perhaps enjoy a foodie festival or dance all night in the city’s thriving live music scene.
Eloping in Brisbane also gives you lots of choices for beautiful wedding spots – Our Redland area for a waterfront ceremony, or maybe pick a spot along the meandering Brisbane River. We have parks and the Aussie bush land to choose from, or mountains and hinterland regions. Check out Mt Cootha parklands or Southbank, the stunning Botanic Gardens or the many parks and gardens.
