Welcome to the Brisbane Explorer!

Who is the Brisbane Explorer?

I’m Marie and I love my hometown of Brisbane!

After many years of living and travelling in Laos and South East Asia, I have the unique experience of having explored Brisbane as both a tourist, and a local.

As an independent, non-government travel website, I aim to share the most useful information possible. I like to consider the Brisbane Explorer the unofficial guide to Brisbane!

The Brisbane Explorer personally visits and anonymously reviews each and every activity, venue and accommodation option – all so you get the most in-depth and up-to-date information possible.

Whether its a sunset picnic overlooking the Brisbane River, day-tripping to a nearby beach, or coffee at a cool cafe, let the Brisbane Explorer inspire you to make the most of your time in Brisbane!
