The idea of luxury is often associated with a hefty price tag, but that doesn’t have to be true if you know where to look! While Brisbane does have its fair share of high-end activities, there are also many things that you can indulge in if you’re on a tighter budget. Here are our top picks for luxury experiences on a budget in Brisbane.
Enjoy a classical musical performance in an iconic Brisbane venue, lit by thousands of candles. Candlelight Concerts offer audiences the chance to hear their favourite music genres performed in a classical style by some of Brisbane’s best professional musicians. Hear the music of great classical composers, tributes to current stars, or the songs from your favourite movie soundtracks. With tickets all under $50, these spectacular candlelit performances are a luxurious experience no matter which concert you pick.
Nothing says luxury quite like a spa day, and at Evergreen Spa you can treat yourself to a day of relaxation for only $25!
