Do you know Brisbane’s nicknames? Brisvegas, the River city, Brissie. Brisbane was originally called Brisvegas as a tongue-in-cheek joke about its lack of night life and fun activities. However, Brisbane has had the last laugh! These days, Brisbane has a huge range of events on every weekend. Perhaps one day, Brissie will be just as busy as Las Vegas itself!
Here are some of the awesome activities happening is Brisvegas this week. If you have any suggestions for next week, make sure to let us know at reception!
