Hotels in Brisbane, Australia and Where to Find Your Accommodation

Hotels in Brisbane, Australia, provide diverse accommodations options for virtually every taste and budget. The capital of Queensland, Brisbane is a sunny tropical gateway to adventure. Visitors to Brisbane can explore the World Heritage-listed Fraser Island, relax in the Whitsundays or drive along the coastline for some of the country’s loveliest scenery.

The Brisbane River has long been at the centre of life in Brisbane. The land that Brisbane now occupies has been inhabited for more than 20,000 years, and the people who lived there were sustained by the fish and shellfish that that they were able to gather from the river. Today, the river continues to be a powerful symbol of the city and a convenient transportation hub. Visitors to Brisbane can fish or boat on the river, or they can head to Moreton Bay to spend an afternoon yachting and sightseeing. The Gallery of Modern Art is set on the banks of the picturesque Brisbane River, and while the building alone is spectacular, what is inside it is even more amazing with world-class exhibitions and an extensive collection of Indigenous art.

When you are ready to extend your experience beyond the riverbanks, catch a CityCat ferry, which can take you along the length of the river all the way to Brett’s Wharf. Hop on or hop off as the mood strikes you, or while away an hour or so as you relax on board and simply enjoy the sights. Check out the inner city beach at South Bank, where you can join a yoga class for an afternoon of stretching and strengthening in the park, sunbake on the warm sands, picnic with friends or relax on the beach and catch a free movie.

Brisbane’s weekend markets are a must-do. The Young Designers Market features labels from local designers while the farmer’s markets feature fresh, locally grown produce, organic foods and tasty treats. Other markets feature indie music, Australiana, jewellery, handmade soaps and vintage fashions. Dedicated shoppers have many other options as well. The Queen Street Mall is the city’s top shopping destination with dozens of stores and boutiques, and Brisbane features four distinct shopping districts featuring more than 1,000 shops, boutiques and flagship stores. Sports aficionados have nearly as many options as shoppers and can both whet and sate their appetite for excitement in this athletic city.

Brisbane is also a great city for those who enjoy outdoor activities. Cycling friendly Brisbane features extensive bicycle trails alongside the river. If you lack a bicycle, cycling stations are located around the city and allow you to rent a cycle for an entire day for just $2.

Green spaces are equally alluring. New Farm Park offers expansive green space that gives you the opportunity to curl up with a good book under a massive fig tree, play Frisbee with friends, enjoy a quiet picnic or literally stop and smell the roses in its lush gardens. The City Botanic Gardens feature the decorative Weeping Fig Avenue, the lush Mangrove Boardwalk and exotic Bamboo Grove.

During your stay in Brisbane, you will almost certainly want to explore its rich food culture. Dine on seafood alfresco, or visit a sidewalk café or food truck for a totally unique experience. Quaint pubs, vibrant coffeehouses, trendy bars and other nightspots and restaurants offer experiences and flavours for every appetite. Whether you choose a relaxed restaurant or a sleek wine bar, you are sure to find something to tickle your tastebuds.

Whether you want to spend your time in Brisbane exploring the sporting culture or you are more interested in the beauty of the region, Brisbane has accommodations that can meet every need. CBD accommodations put you at the heart of the action, and you will be able to easily explore the city. A hotel located along the riverfront, can offer you not just convenience but also spectacular views. Furnished apartments can offer a different kind of experience for larger groups or longer stays and can be found in virtually any nook and cranny in Brisbane. Bed-and-breakfasts and resorts offer a touch of romance or luxury.
