DH has a significant birthday in March, so I've decided he and I are going to go to Brisbane for the weekend. We'll be there on Friday and Saturday nights and will be alone.
I can't image how to plan what we might do when we don't have to take into account things that interest little people, how far we can walk before little legs get tired and how late we can stay out before little people turn into big problems.
Any suggestions for things we must do?

I don’t have any ideas either but it sounds exciting. Even just walking round for hours not listening to whinging, and eating at restaurants with candles you don’t have to blow out as soon as you sit down would be good! Maybe try fit in a rooftop bar as well:

When I had 2 child-free days in Brisbane last year I really enjoyed taking a cruise along the river, along with a long walk and lunch at Southbank. It was my first time visiting Brisbane and I just loved everything about Southbank!

I would see a show, visit the art galleries in peace to see what I want to see, eat at a non-kid-friendly restaurant, go to some cool bars for a cocktail, sleep in...

I like the Emporium Hotel. It’s in Southbank with beautiful views across the river.
The museum, theatre and GOMA are all within walking distance or you can get the hotel car to drop you off. The restaurants in the hotel are good but Stokehouse on the water is great for lunch. There’s some great bars and restaurants over on Fish Lane. La Lune is an awesome wine bar. Gauge is a favourite of mine.
Do you know the city well? What do you like to do?
The Calile is another trendy hotel in the trendy James St precinct. I dine and shop in the area but am not a big fan of the hotel itself.
Then there’s the usual city hotels but I find them a bit staid and boring. Same could be said for the city on the weekends.

I agree that Emporium Hotel South Bank (rooftop bar and pool) is pretty special, even just for a drink.
Calile is probably where I’d stay to spend time at James Street shopping and eating. Nearby New Farm park is nice for a walk and you could get on a City Cat there to see Brisbane from the river. Get off at West End for more shopping and eating.

The bridge climb is lovely. We did the sunset one, just stunning. Great memories.
