Favourite Cities and Hotels in Australia

Although its jazzy Gold Coast sister to the south still likes to hog the limelight, Brisbane has really come into its own in the past few years, combining big-city innovation and industry with a small-town charm. With a tropical climate, relaxed attitude and burgeoning food and bar scene, Brisbane is the ultimate home-grown holiday destination.

They say it’s the people who make a place, and in Brissie, there’s an infectious enthusiasm that you simply don’t find in Sydney. Fortitude Valley is the pulsing home to passionate party-goers and music-makers who are leading Australia’s charge into the dance music and electro scene. On any given weekend, Suncorp Stadium and the Gabba are packed with sports fans cheering on the Broncos or Lions or Bulls or Aussies, and even the black-clad, rainbow-haired, skateboard-clutching youths that seem to be a constant fixture around Queen Street Mall have a general joie de vivre about them that belies their emo clothing. Brisbanites are what they are – and don’t really care what anyone else thinks.

The recent floods that hit Brisbane only served to highlight the mateship and spirit that flavour the town. The city stood united against inconceivable tragedy, and stood united again to reopen its doors to tourism. As the town recovers, the smiling locals and touching cleanup efforts are the single most powerful sign to would-be visitors from Broome to Ballarat that Brisbane is well and truly open for business.

You won’t need telling that summers are very hot and humid in Brisbane, so if that’s not your cup of tea, avoid coming in late-December through to February. You’ll find plenty of nice, sunny days and minimum humidity in September through to early December, and the same goes for most of autumn.

TRANSlink is one of the main transportation services in Brisbane and provides buses, trains and ferries. Grab a go-card – not only is it cheaper than buying tickets each time you travel, but it also works across all three modes and can be topped-up.

In stark contrast to Sydney and Melbourne, the city of Brisbane often gets lost in the shuffle when it comes to big city tourism in Australia. At just under 2 million people however, Brisbane, the capital of Queensland is no slouch and offers tremendous vacation and travel appeal. As the former host of such international events as the Commonwealth Games, Goodwill Games and World's Fair, Brisbane's reputation as a vibrant, convivial community has been firmly established. A fortuitous geographical position around the Brisbane River and Moreton Bay, all within the coastal plain of the Eastern Highlands mountain range, adds to the natural allure of Brisbane city.

Brisbane is first and foremost, a city of recreation. Much like the rest of Australia, the population displays a fervent passion for sport and the great outdoors. As such, the principal attractions revolve around areas such as the South Bank Parklands.

Opposite the Central Business District on the banks of the Brisbane River, the Parklands are a popular retreat and feature a lagoon, riverfront promenade, Streets Beach, markets and a number of picnic areas. All in all, South Bank Parklands is the ideal location to spend a beautiful day.

At the base of Mount Coot-tha, the free Brisbane City Botanic Gardens covers 20 hectares of land, with a number of superb flora attractions, some of which date back to the foundation of the park in 1855. The Gardens also contain the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium and a wonderful Japanese exhibit, evidence of the World Expo in 1988.

The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is yet more proof that Brisbane is a city for nature and wildlife lovers. The preeminent koala preserve in the world, the Sanctuary also shelters other animals endemic to Australia, from kangaroos and wombats, to echidnas and a variety of snakes.

Portside Wharf is a lovely, upscale district of the city with many retail and commercial shops, not to mention views of massive ocean liners and yachts. With restaurants and cinemas as well, Portside is a great place to relax at night for dinner and a show.

A big sports town, there are always athletic events to enjoy in Brisbane throughout the year. The city has major teams in several sports, such as rugby, soccer, Australian rules football and cricket. With passionate fans and terrific venues in Suncorp Stadium and The ‘Gabba Cricket Ground, a match in any of these sports is worth the price of admission.

A notable hub for live music and nightlife, Brisbane has a wealth of great clubs and concert halls. Check out the excellent Queensland Performing Arts Complex for the calendar of shows that feature the city opera, ballet and theatre company.

Other cultural venues such as the Brisbane Powerhouse and Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts hold numerous exhibits and festivals all year long, with an emphasis on modern art, film and dance.

Great Brisbane Hotel Deals with HotelClub.com

Once overshadowed in terms of tourist appeal by its showy southern neighbour, Surfer’s Paradise, Brisbane has come into its own in recent years to exemplify everything that a contemporary Australian city can be. ... Read more »

With the industry and innovation of a much larger city but a small-town, laid-back and friendly feel that oozes Queensland charm, Brisbane enjoys the best of both worlds.

Brisbane’s locals are a huge part of what makes it so appealing, and from passionate party-goers that support the thriving electronic music scene in Fortitude Valley to the sports-mad fans that pack out Suncorp Stadium and the Gabba, and even the black-clad, rainbow-haired, skateboard-clutching youths that seem to be a constant fixture around Queen Street Mall, there’s an enthusiasm that seems to infect the Brisbane population.

This strength of spirit was particularly evident in the recent floods that inundated Brisbane. The rest of Australia looked on as residents picked themselves up, rowed up the street to their neighbour’s house and tackled the consequent cleanup united. As the town recovers from the damage and cost of the floods, it is that same indomitable enthusiasm that serves as a reminder to visitors that Brisbane is well and truly open for business.

Brisbane Local

CBD

The business hub of the city is also home to a mind-boggling amount of shopping districts. Get those credit cards to Queen Street Mall and give them some exercise at Queens Plaza and Brisbane Arcade, both of which host major national and international brands as well as other little gems. If they don’t tickle your fancy, try MacArthur Central, Broadway on the Mall and The Myer Centre.

We told you shopping was fierce in this town.

South Bank

Start your day on an arty note with the Queensland Art Gallery and the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (right next to each other). Both are massive venues hosting some of the best local and international art. Next, head over to the Queensland Museum for a little less art and much more education and entertainment (especially in the Science Centre). Finally, give your brain and legs a break by hopping onto The Wheel of Brisbane, a massive Ferris wheel that gives you an epic view of the city.

Once you’re exhausted (and famished), head to Little Stanley Street, which is lined with an abundance of restaurants and chilled-out bars. Need to work off that meal? Take a walk along the Goodwill Bridge.

P.S. Some areas of The Parklands have recently re-opened after the devastating floods, so make sure you go and have a look!

Fortitude Valley

The Valley combines a hefty dose of hipsters, shopping spots and a hell of a nightlife to create a grown-up wonderland. When it comes to the shops, it doesn’t matter if you’re after big Aussie labels or alternative boutiques catering to more quirky tastes – you’ll be covered in this district, no matter what. Once you’ve racked up a sizeable Visa bill, make your way to Chinatown, where you’ll not only find mouth-watering Asian grub but also… more shopping! Woo!

If you’re feeling a little guilty about your lack of ‘meaningful’ experiences, head over to The Fort for some cool art displays (if you’re into street art, you’ll love it here) and then the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, where you’ll no doubt find an event to please your tastes.

If you’re not satisfied by all the shopping (what kind of an animal are you?), the Valley Laneway Markets, held every Sunday, provide a range of local goodies.

New Farm/Teneriffe

Ooh, fancy! This area caters for upmarket tastes and hosts a bevy of fine-dining venues and trendy bars. The London Club or Salon Bar and Tapas are great options for a cocktail, a bite and a chat. Once you’re fed and rested, head to the Fireworks Gallery for a spectacular array of contemporary art, including a large collection of Aboriginal works. Finally, the Brisbane Powerhouse will sort you out for fine dining as well as various shows and exhibits.

Mount Coot-tha

This is where you need to come for a good relaxation session. Start your morning with the phenomenal view from The Lookout and then head to the nearby café for some brekkie. Once you’re energised and raring to go, try a hike through the Mount Coot-tha Reserve (or a drive if you can’t be bothered) and be met with gorgeous scenery, native wildlife – and again, one hell of a view.

End your day with a visit to the peaceful Brisbane Botanic Gardens, which are nestled at the bottom of Mount Coot-tha itself. Incidentally, the odd name ‘Mount Coot-tha’ is used for both the area and the hill that resides in it, and is from a local indigenous dialect meaning ‘Land of Wild Honey.’

Brisbane Eat & Drink

Moda The chef whips up unbelievable Euro and modern-Aussie eats for the cool crowd who frequent.

Lychee Lounge One of the most beautiful bars in the city with a clientele to match. Come for a feed, a chill, a cocktail and a secret perv.

The Family Move to everything from hard-dance to electro in this massive club. If you’re up for a young crowd and a few too many, this is your place.

Il Centro Who doesn’t love Italian? This big, bright venue will keep you coming back just for their famous crab lasagne.

Green Papaya Hearty meals of contemporary Thai and Balinese in this bright and cheerful venue.

Restaurant Two This award-winning icon has a degustation that’ll make you swoon.

Cha Cha Char Awesome steak at this place. Don’t expect big slabs of it, though. This is steak done with an elegant flair.

The MET Comprising five rooms, this bar/club caters for everyone, whether you want a chill and a drink or a dance fuelled by lethal shots.

Bar Merlo Boasts the best coffee in the city. Make sure you grab a hot mug (we recommend the mocha) and a bite to eat.

Gambaro’s: It started as a takeaway shop and is now a popular restaurant serving the best seafood in the city. Their seafood platters are just plain sexy.

Brisbane Events

Want to enjoy movies by moonlight? Grab a date or head over with a bunch of mates to the Moonlight Cinema. Feel free to bring along food, non-alcoholic beverages (there’s a bar there!) and comfy things to sit on. Movies are always better by moonlight. Mid-December to late-January.

The Brisbane Blues Festival in mid-May has been around for nearly 20 years and is one of the most anticipated music events on the Brisbane calendar. The Tempo Hotel in Fortitude Valley sees stacks of people bopping along to bands on the main stage and chilling to some solo artists on the second stage downstairs.

Greek food and dancing are legendary, so come and enjoy copious amounts of both at May’s Paniyiri Festival. There are also rides, eating contests (!), fireworks, movies and loads more. For the over 18s, ‘Trella’ (which means ‘craze’ in Greek) lives up to its name and is one hell of an afterparty.

The Ekka in mid- to late-August is just plain fun. The kiddies get a bunch of rides, shows and games to enjoy and the adults have great food and exhibits to explore. Plus, there are showbags! Head over to the RNA Showgrounds for this one.

When To Go

Summers are very hot and humid in Brisbane, so if that’s not your cup of tea, avoid coming in late-December through to February. You’ll find plenty of nice, sunny days and minimum humidity in September through to early December, and the same goes for most of autumn.

  • Summer average: 30°C (86°F)
  • Autumn average: 18°C (64°F)
  • Winter average: 12°C (54°F)
  • Spring average: 23°C (73°F)

What To Miss

The sun is incredibly hot, and even when it’s overcast you can still get burned. Avoid the humiliation of looking like two-legged lobster and slather on the sunscreen.

Getting Around

TRANSlink is one of the main transportation services in Brisbane and provides buses, trains and ferries. Grab a go-card – not only is it cheaper than buying tickets each time you travel, but it also works across all three modes and can be topped-up.
