Visiting Brisbane, Australia


The Brisbane river and Brisbane city skyline.
Hotel accommodation is available along the
Brisbane River and Brisbane CBD.

Brisbane is the capital and largest city in Queensland and has a population of more than two million. As the third most populous city in the country, Brisbane receives a substantial number of visitors annually although many of them are business travellers. Hotels in Brisbane, Australia range from affordable hostels to five-star hotels and resorts.

Hostels start at $24 for a bed, and they are located in the heart of Brisbane City and near the CBD. They offer easy access to public transportation, and some even provide such amenities as meals, Internet lounges, tennis courts, pools and shuttles. Brisbane also has well over 100 hotels and motels scattered throughout the city. The most affordable hotel rooms start at $60 per night while others cost $300 or more per night. Bed-and-breakfasts offer travellers a slightly more personal touch and start at $77 per night.

Five-star luxury accommodations are available for those visitors who appreciate a bit of pampering. Five-star hotels in the CBD tend to offer pools, gyms, concierge service and more and range from $185 to $990 per night. Visitors who are staying for more than a few days may prefer the comfort of a serviced apartment to a hotel. Furnished apartments in Brisbane City start at just $325 per week.

Brisbane may be predominately a business city, but that does not mean there is not plenty to do here in this sunny capital of Queensland. The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary offers you a chance to get up close and personal with more than 100 of the country’s cuddly icons or to feed kangaroos and visit dingoes, Tasmanian devils and wombats. You can also check out the views from Mount Coot-tha and the Brisbane Botanic Gardens overlooking the river.

If you are more interested in surf and sun, the Gold Coast is just half an hour away while the Riverlife Adventure Center offers kayaking, abseiling, rock climbing, biking, roller blading and more. Roma Street Parklands, which is a seasonal display of sub-tropical Australian horticulture that is home to lizards, birds and more, is in the center of the CBD and just five minutes from City Hall.

Dive into the history of the state in Ipswich. Ipswich is less than an hour’s drive from Brisbane’s CBD and offers shopping, dining and golfing along with museums, hot air balloons and wine-tasting tours. St. Helena Island is another historic must-see, and it is home to a colonial prison and the first historic national park of the state.
