In the year ending 2016, Brisbane welcomed a record breaking 6.8 million visitors to its shores, as found by a Tourism and Events Queensland study. It shouldn’t come at too much of a surprise as the city is full of incredible things to do and see! Be sure to book your car rental in Brisbane with the team at East Coast Car Rentals to truly make the most of what the city has to offer this winter. Here are just three incredible reasons why Brisbane is worth stopping off at on your next road  trip. 1. Eat Street Think epic outdoor food festivals are just for the summer months? Think again. Eat Street runs every single Friday and Saturday of the year for hungry foodies everywhere. Find 180 stalls of food and entertainment in the northern suburb of Hamilton, which just so happens to host incredible views of the Brisbane river and city. All stalls are located inside individual shipping containers to make one huge food village. Feast on a flavourful ‘Nannwich’ at Don’t Worry Eat Curry, snack on Tokyo Tucka’s ‘Japanese curry poutine’ and finish your tour off with a stick of ‘Flashing floss’ by Professor Fairy Floss. There are also 1200 free parking spaces to secure your rental hire at ultimate convenience.

2. Marvel : Creating the Cinematic Universe Marvel is renowned for its action packed adventure films featuring some of our favourite superheroes ever, such as Iron Man, Hulk and Thor. If you’ve always wanted to see Tony Stark’s impressive flying suit of armour in real life or think you could be worthy of picking up Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, now’s your chance. This winter, Queensland Art Gallery are hosting the largest Marvel exhibition ever. Find original artwork, costumes and film props used for some of the most iconic comic book movies – over 500 in fact! The perfect place to get your geek on, this exhibition is only being held in Brisbane and is a must do for fans of all ages.
3. Queensland Music Festival If music is your jam, Brisbane is the place you’ll want to be this winter. Hosting the Queensland Music Festival from July 7-30, get set to listen and see local, national and international artists perform at different venues. See artists perform in the city centre, across the region and in remote corners of Queensland – perfect for putting your rental hire to good use!
Although the three above reasons should be just the nudge you need to visit Brisbane this winter, there’s plenty more to get stuck into, too. Visit the team at East Coast Car Rentals to book your perfect car hire in Brisbane and discover fantastic activities and sights.
