10 Things You Can Do This March For A Marvellous Time In Brisbane

March—once upon a time the first month of the year.

Come March, summer has ended and autumn has begun but that doesn’t mean the fun has run its course. (Featured image: @grantryan)

March is a wonderful time of year—trees begin to change colour and the cooler temperatures make days out more comfortable—with so many wonderful choices and incredible things to do.

What are you going to get up to?

1. Sip champagne with sweeping river views

Customs House’s much-loved pop-up bar by the Brisbane River makes its return after an almost two-month hiatus as the St Tropez Sunset bar.

The walk-in-only bar has been decked out with the necessary French Riviera-inspired decor and the Moët & Chandon bar will be serving up some of the best drops the French champagne house have to offer with Impérial, Rosé and Ice Impérial (the first champagne designed to be served over ice) flowing over the course of the weekend.

Soak up the elegance, vibrance and glamour of the French Riviera by the Brisbane River from 3pm every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

2. Get restaurant discounts with TheFork Festival

The third iteration of TheFork Festival, brought to you by the restaurant booking site of the same name, has begun and is offering diners huge savings on sit-down meals at restaurants across Australia.

Savings can be as high as 50% and isn’t just limited to dinner. Diners can book in for breakfast, lunch and every other hour that the selected restaurant is open.

3. Imagine you are eating ice cream

Imagine because all tickets to all sessions have been snapped up. Sad face.

In any case, it’s happening on Saturday 20 March and Sunday 21 March at West Village. Keep an eye out for tickets, which were free, and you might be able to get in. One can only hope.

4. Putt around this Candyland

In town for Easter, this ultimate sugar hit at Victoria Park’s Easter Candyland Putt Putt will have you feeling eggs-tra special. This is the first time that they have dressed up the course, so expect the unexpected and head on down for some mini-golf fun.

5. Rave at Goma

Rave, Goma’s selection of films that explore the rave scene through connection, release and transformation, comes to an end on 10 March. They are free to go see and are showing on Wednesdays (6pm and 8pm) and Saturdays (1pm and 3pm).

Movies to be seen include TrainspottingIf It Were Love, and Groove.

6. Experience a Candlelight concert

Brisbane’s Candlelight concerts at Events on Oxlade are still happening and some tickets are still available for performances of Beethoven’s best works, Mozart’s classics and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.

 7. Explore the sea with Ocean Film Festival

This year, the Ocean Film Festival world tour arrives at Brisbane’s Powerhouse from 24 March to 27 March with two hours of inspirational, educational and entertaining films related to the ocean from independent filmmakers. Films are of varying length and capture sublime footage from below and above the seas.

 8. Visit Surfers Paradise for this free arts festival

Amanda Parer’s larger-than-life installation Lost will be the star attraction at Beyond The Sand—the Gold Coast’s arts festival transforming Surfers Paradise into a gallery of colour, movement and music.

The free, multi-medium arts festival featuring Parer’s never-before-seen installation will convert the beachfront into a floral-inspired wonderland for nine days and nights this March.

Beyond The Sand takes place from 13 March to 21 March

9. MoMo Fest makes a return

On 14 March, expect to find more than 30 varieties on offer, from buffalo, goat, lamb, beef, chicken and pork to vegan and vegetarian options to satiate your appetite. However, momos are best enjoyed as a feast with family and friends, so it’s important that you unite as many loved ones so that you can chow down together.

10. Listen to the science

There will be more than 120 events across the five days of Brisbane’s World Science Festival with many being made available online this year. Covering topics like Science and Society, STEM, Art meets Science, and Chemistry and Experiments, there’s something for everyone, young and old. There are also plenty of free, non-ticketed events too.
