Brisbane Hotels & Accommodation
Australia’s third largest city, Brisbane packs a punch when it comes to culture and nightlife. But it still has a friendly small-town vibe! Throw in some excellent shopping, dining and natural attractions, and you’ll see why the capital of the sunshine state is famous for its quality of life. Book your Brisbane hotel with us and you’ll also be close to other action-packed Queensland holiday destinations like the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. Wot more could you want from a sunny Queensland getaway?
Brisbane’s earliest recorded history comes from Matthew Flinders exploring Moreton Bay in 1799. In 1823, NSW governor Thomas Brisbane decided to send the worst convicts somewhere else, and a settlement was established in the area. These days this city of two million is better known for The Go-Betweens, Powderfinger, Nick Earls and The Brisbane Broncos.
Things to do
Brisbane has heaps of exciting activities spread out among its different areas: In the CBD, you can walk around the City Botanic Gardens and see lush green fields, colourful flowers, lily ponds and a bamboo grove. South Bank and South Brisbane have some of Brisbane’s best cultural attractions and landmarks, like the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Queensland Art Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art. Brisbane has a thriving live music scene, and Fortitude Valley is the place to check out an up-and-coming local band. It’s also the nightclub centre of Brisbane, with indie clubs, dance clubs, and cocktails bars to choose from. It’s close to the more laid back New Farm, which has trendy coffee shops and New Farm Park, where you’ll find the iconic Brisbane Powerhouse.
For the best view in the city, head to the Mt. Coot-tha summit lookout, close to Toowong. And if you’re keen to fit in a beach break, it’s only a one-hour train ride to the Gold Coast. There, you can hit the beach at Surfers Paradise and Burleigh Heads and check out the theme parks like Dreamworld and Warner Bros Movie World.
Shopping and dining
Brisbane has stacks of shopping, from Queen St. Mall in the CBD to the Westfield shopping centres in suburbs like Chermside and Indooroopilly. Check out West End or The Valley to pick up something bohemian, boutique or vintage. Fans of market shopping will find plenty of choice in Brisbane, including the popular South Bank and Valley markets on weekends.
There are plenty of dining options too. If you have cash to spare, dine at a fancy restaurant at Eagle Street Pier and you’ll have river and Storey Bridge views to go with your delicious dinner. You can also find all-you-can eat Hare Krishna vegetarian feasts, a 24-hour pancake house and enough kebab shops to satisfy any amount of post-nightclub hunger.
