If the Brisbane chill has you cowering inside binging Netflix shows don’t worry, you are not alone!
That said, we need to get out and about, and there is no reason having a social life should break the bank. Here are the best free events in Brisbane for you to partake in this month.
Bliss Out At Sunday Sessions On The Green
At the top end of Southbank every Sunday afternoon people are relaxing to the funky tunes and chill vibes of Sunday sessions on the green. Bring a picnic blanket, lie out on the lawn and take in the calming atmosphere for the week to come. And did we mention it is 100% free? Score!
