Brisbane residents (and visitors) can now save big bucks on dining and entertainment experiences across the city, thanks to a new month-long campaign by Brisbane City Council.

More than 5000 deals will be available in August via the free Brisbane app – listed under the Rediscover Brisbane Guide, which goes live on August 1 – with new deals available every day throughout the month.

That includes day cruises and quad biking on Moreton Island, cultural and historical walking tours, minigolf family passes, climbing and abseiling, and river cruises with cocktails. Plus, a number of food and drink experiences including a champagne and oyster tour, high teas, brewery and wine tours, brunch at Crystalbrook Vincent’s rooftop bar Fiume and a three-Martini lunch at the Inchcolm. And all of it is available for just $20 each.

Broadsheet Access members get special tables at busy restaurants, tickets to exclusive events and discounts on food, coffee, brand offers and more.

It’s all designed to drive support for local businesses after a particularly difficult few years. “Brisbane businesses and tourism operators have faced unprecedented times over the past two years with Covid and devastating floods having huge impacts on their livelihood,” Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said in a statement.

“We are committed to ensuring Brisbane remains the most small business-friendly city in Australia and this council-led campaign is just one of the ways we’re helping businesses.

“Tourism is a key part of our city's economy and after a tough time we have seen people wanting to get out and explore the city again so it's perfect timing to be part of this campaign.”
