Sophie Dillman’s Great Day Out

Sophie Dillman’s top 4 things to do as part of her Great Day Out in Brisbane…

JC Slaughter Falls, Mount Cootha

One of the more popular tracks on Mount Cootha, this picturesque part of Brisbane is the perfect natural setting for a hike. The cascading waterfall along this walk flows into Ithaca Creek. There are two tracks that go up the mountain which originate from this point – the Aboriginal Art Trail and Summit Track. With the added benefit of barbecues and picnic tables near the car park, it’s the perfect spot to get the family together on a weekend.

The Single Guys, Kenmore

Guaranteed to satisfy that coffee craving, The Single Guys was one of the first trendy cafes to pop up in the western suburbs. Aside from the real chocolate sprinkled atop the cappuccino, we highly recommend the savory mince and the zingy smashed peas with goats cheese.

Vintage Etcetera, Kenmore

Located right next door to The Single Guys, this quant vintage store is the perfect spot to walk off that breakky. You can easily spend hours hunting for your next treasure, or simply take in the beauty of each hand-picked item. This family owned and run business will definitely have you coming back time and time again.

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

It’s been a long-time Brisbane favourite for many over the years and Lone Pine is today as popular as ever. Hand feed kangaroos, pat an emu, cuddle a koala or curl up with a snake, there’s so much to do you’ll need a whole day to enjoy all that is on offer.
