See the beauty and charm of the city with a Brisbane car rental

Brisbane is the third biggest spot for tourists to flock to. It is also Australia's most popular city to rent a car and take a road trip. With parklands, botanical gardens and lush forests, there is plenty to do beyond the booming fireworks lighting the night skies and the growing music and arts scene.

Taste the local cuisine or relax on a boat, as it meanders through the city on the Brisbane River. Swimming and rock climbing are just a few more of the many amusements at your disposal, with local transit making everything easily accessible.

If you are not 100% sure what to do with your time in the city, we may be able to help with that as well. Just like other cities around the world, Brisbane has many iconic things to see and do. We at VroomVroomVroom have come up with a list of things that you can do and places where you can stay during your trip. Check it out below.

If you want a unique movie-watching experience, then make sure to head to Yatala Drive-In which is more than just a Cineplex. It is more of a community event rather than just a normal theatre because you can socialize with other people, camp out, enjoy the starry nights, cruise in your car and of course watch your favorite film! Don't be surprised if you see movie watchers wearing pajamas and carrying their pillows whilst watching film. There is a Candy Bar where you can buy some snacks and goodies. Watch the latest blockbusters at Yatala Drive-In, which airs new movie releases from Monday to Sunday.

Whether you enjoy cycling or just want to find new ways to explore the city, you will surely have fun meeting new friends and riding bikes with Brisbane by Bicycle. They offer bike tours that are guided by a local who knows a lot about the history, culture, and local happenings. Instead of using your guidebook when exploring the city, why not let the expert take you to different places including hidden gems and off the beaten paths. Bikers meet up at the park and finishes at a trendy bar in the city. Enjoy a complimentary soft drink or beer after the tour.

The best way to see Brisbane and other neighboring cities is by riding a hot air balloon. The nearest hot air balloon company is Floating Images, which is just a 30 minute drive with a Brisbane car rental. It is advisable to make reservations in in advance since they only have one flight each day and can only accommodate up to 10 passengers. The flight usually takes an hour so make sure to bring your camera with you so you can take wonderful snapshots of the city and the countryside. However, the whole activity lasts for 3 to 4 hours because there is also breakfast included.

River City Cruises' experienced crew and friendly staff will surely make your trip memorable. The guided tour usually lasts for an hour and a half and you will learn about Brisbane through informative commentary.
