It’s about that time of year again, when we put away our bikinis and start to reach for the jumpers that have been collecting dust at the back our wardrobes.

The temperatures might be dropping here in the Sunshine State, but there is still lots of exciting things to do in and around Brisbane in the winter months

1.  Whale Watching
We might not like the cooler ocean temperatures, but our whale friends do! If you would like to see these majestic sea creatures in action, whale watching season runs from June to October. Brisbane Whale Watching and Tangalooma Whale Watching run daily cruises throughout Winter. You might even get lucky and catch a glimpse of the migrating humpbacks around Point Lookout in North Stradbroke Island or Cape Moreton in Moreton Island.

2.   Night Noodle Markets
Southbank’s Night Noodle Markets are back again this year and we are all for it! From Pad Thai to Pho, the Night Noodle Markets is your one-stop noodle spot this Winter. Opening night for 2019 on July 25 and running until August 5.

3.   Winter Harvest Festival
The annual Winter Harvest Festival showcases the beautiful food and wine produced in Queensland’s Scenic Rim. The event features producers, suppliers, retailers and chefs from the region and offers festival-goers the opportunity to ‘literally eat their way around the Scenic Rim.’ The festival begins on Saturday July 6.  

For more information, visit Winter Harvest Festival. 

4.   Seadeck
All aboard! Seadeck is sailing back in to Brisbane this Winter. Gather your crew and cruise down Brisbane River with a Pimms in hand. Seadeck docks in Brisbane from early May to mid-October. You'll have to be patient, tickets for Seadeck Brisbane aren't on sale yet.

Keep your eyes peeled on the Seadeck website.

5.   Yatala Drive-In
Going to see a film in your uggies and warmest winter pyjamas? Yes, please! Fill the boot of your car with blankets, all your favourite snacks and head down to Yatala Drive-In Cinema. They screen old classics and recently released blockbusters, so there's something for everyone!

For session times, visit Yatala Drive-In
