Get back to nature right here in the city
If you are staying in Brisbane for the Queen's birthday long weekend but still want a break from the rat race, here are some options that will help you feel that you've done something different.

If you thought tree climbing was just for kids.... think again. Tree Climbers Australia runs courses in tree climbing and the chance to try rope and harness style climbing in a variety of parks around Brisbane. On Sunday 9 June you can join the Tree Climbers for some free Recreational Tree Climbing at Holland Park. Please phone Tree Climbers 0405 756 456 reserve your place. They have lots of great activities so check out their website here.
