No need to stay stuck at home when it's wet outside. Here are 6 great things to do in Brisbane on rainy days that are all worth leaving the house for.

Book Shop Cafés

Brisbane has 6 great bookshop cafes, all with their own personality and all of which make the perfect place to get cosy with a new book and a steamy cup of tea or coffee and bite to eat...more

Antique Centres

Both Empire Revival (the old Paddington Antique Centre) and Camp Hill Antique Centre have their quaint cafés attached and are excellent spots to while away a few hours wandering the aisles.

Quirky Cinemas

Why go to a standard chain cinema when you can enjoy a movie at state of the art GOMA Cinematheque (currently screening All the World's Memories), the Palace Cinemas, Newmarket's schmick new Reading Cinemas, the Dendy Cinemas or a boutique cinema such as Hawthorne Deluxe Cinema or the Blue Room Cinebar?


The top current exhibitions (both free to visit) will easily pass an entire day at the galleries: Picasso: The Vollard Suite and the Australian Collection with onsite cafés for sustenance. 

Games Cafes & Bars

Brisbane has great games cafes and bars to while away the hours with new & retro games -  Holey Moley Golf Club and Netherworld in Fortitude Valley and Conexio Games Cafe in Albany Creek.

Escape Rooms

Get cerebral and have fun at the same time at Puzzle Room Escape or Escape Hunt where pairs or groups must find their way through a series of 'rooms' using clues and solve the mystery.
