A fantastic outdoor event packed to the rafters with everyone from children and parents to retirees, such is the wide variety of the lineup!

What we like: Brisbane International
When is it: 30 December 2018 - 6 January 2019
All Australians love sport. Now that the rugby has concluded for the year, Brisbane's attention turns to cricket, however even more exciting - the tennis! The Brisbane International has evolved from a poor man's Australian Open into a highlight on Tennis' yearly calendar. Attracting many of the big names in recent years including Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Sharapova, and Svitolina, you can be confident of seeing performances of the highest standard from the biggest names in the game. You can't go wrong on a warm, humid night in Brisbane at the tennis! Find out more here.
