Jan Power's farmers' market runs every Wednesday and along with farm produce, you can pick up fresh pastas, baked goods, cakes, spices, and much more. This is ideal for a casual dinner back at the holiday rental, or a picnic on the go.

If your holiday wouldn't be complete without a picture of you cuddling a koala, Lone Pine should be top of the to-do list. A day out at the beach is another staple of a Queensland trip, and one of the best is Colmslie Beach Reserve. There are plenty of shaded areas for kids to play or have a picnic, and a small beach front area for swimming or paddling.

Walk around the reservoir on the well-marked track, keeping your eyes peeled for the platypus which are often spotted in the area.

There's also a cafe serving breakfast and other light meals throughout the day.

There's also a great range of street food to nibble on while browsing. The Wheel of Brisbane is open throughout the day, but take an evening ride to experience the city at night. See the lights of the city from 60m in the air, and enjoy 360 degree panoramic views over the surrounding area.

It's the perfect way to work up an appetite for dinner.
