Welcome to Brisbane – not just Queensland’s administrative capital, but the leader of the Sunshine State’s culinary scene.

With warm weather on tap and sunny skies the norm, al fresco is a favourite of these parts and the dining is often just as laid-back as its residents. With the Brisbane region home to a thriving cafe culture, some of the country’s best restaurants, and a population of dedicated dining precincts, it’s guaranteed you won’t go hungry here.

The most recognised of Brisbane’s restaurants sit within Brisbane City, hugging the river’s edge. While Queen Street and Eagle Street Pier offer a treasure trove of eateries, it’s newcomer Howard Smith Wharves that has become one of the city’s favourite dining precincts, home to restaurants serving up refined Greek, Cantonese and Japanese fare, among others.
