With chic stores, happening bars, great restaurants and lots of fun things to do, Brisbane makes for an excellent destination to consider for a “girls only” holiday. Opt for a van hire at Brisbane and begin a journey of fascinating discoveries. After checking into a nice hotel in the centre of the city, one can kick-start the adventure in this gorgeous Australian city.
Don’t let the name of this harbour fool you. The closest access point from Brisbane city to Moreton Bay, this harbour is located beside the Manly Harbour Village. A major reason why a group of girlfriends should visit this place is the impressive range of dining and shopping options found here. Then, there is also the gorgeous view of the marina that cannot be missed.
While planning a trip to Brisbane, it is vital to find out about the free live events and movies that are scheduled to take place. Located within the South Bank, this is a great spot for a gang of girls to unwind after a fabulous day of retail therapy.
Girlfriends might consider putting their respective culinary skills to the test by heading to the Jan Powers Farmers Markets. Purchase farm-fresh produce in the form of vegetables, fruits and cold cuts. Brisbane is home to some great farmers' markets where you can buy local produce - perfect for a “girls only” cooking session in one’s service apartment.
With the freedom of a rented van, exploring the Scenic Rim, a large arc of mountains that have a height of 1,375 meters, is worthwhile. Starting from the Mistake Ranges across the Main Range to the MacPherson Range, there are a host of guesthouses and spots with untouched wilderness that are ideal for exploring as a group.

In addition to this, there is the Myer Centre, best known for its denim shops and specialty knife stores. The Wintergarden, Queens Plaza and Broadway on the Mall are other renowned spots to hit for some retail therapy.
