If you are looking for accommodation in Brisbane, there is plenty of choice. The city has something on offer for everyone. Of course, given the stunning views of the river, it would be a shame not to make the most of them.

The city is buzzing with a dynamic art scene, an after-dark party scene and plenty of great restaurants and coffee houses. Lush greenery blends into the twists and turns of the river and the skyline also has a sprinkling of historic architecture. Brisbanites take to the streets in numbers because it is a place built for walking. The regular blue skies and sunny weather, together with paths and bridges will make it easy and more than pleasant to explore on foot.
The Brisbane Greeters is a free public service you may want to look up whilst in the city. They are a group of enthusiastic locals who simply want to introduce you to their city and share their knowledge of the place they love! The local transport system is made up of trains, ferries and buses and the services are easy to access using a ‘Go card’. Explore Brisbane’s urban precincts, each with its own distinct vibe and soak up the local culture. You will find sandy beaches, to the east and may even spot some whales, turtles or dolphins in Moreton Bay. Toowoomba, a rambling country hub, is on the west side. The Granite Belt Wine Region is also a stone’s throw away and some impressive specimens are available to sample.
