Where to stay in Brisbane
The capital city of Queensland and the third most populous city in Australia, Brisbane is one of the fastest-growing cities in Australia and known for its vibrant urban precincts and outdoor lifestyle.
There is plenty to see and do in Brisbane. Across the Brisbane River from the Central Business District, the city's famous South Bank features the Cultural Center with its world-class entertainment and galleries. The Queensland Museum and the Sciencentre with their exhibitions and the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art have no shortage of visitors.
Brisbane's public transport is a great way to get around the city with the city's travel card able to be used on bus, ferry and rail services across southeast Queensland. Brisbane also offers free bus services at certain times in the Central Business District, while visitors are encouraged to take advantage of Brisbane’s wonderful outdoor climate by cycling around town thanks to extensive bicycle paths and Brisbane City Council's CityCycle initiative. If you're exploring more of Queensland, you could consider renting a car in Brisbane.
Hotels in Brisbane
A five-star choice in the heart of the city's Central Business District, Stamford Plaza Brisbane is just minutes from Brisbane Botanic Gardens and Eagle Street Pier and features elegant rooms with stunning views over Brisbane River. The hotel also offers an outdoor swimming pool, four restaurants and a fitness center. Brisbane's most prestigious dining and shopping precinct is just outside the front door, while, for those who prefer in-house dining, the Brasserie On The River offers both indoor and outdoor dining with stunning water views.
Less expensive is the Ibis Brisbane which is also located in the heart of the city's Central Business District not far from the Queen Street Mall shopping precinct, the Treasury Casino, the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Center and the Queensland Performing Arts Center. The hotel features 218 rooms, a restaurant and bar and guests have access to food and beverage outlets and conference facilities at the neighboring Mercure Hotel.
At the other end of the scale, the award-winning Brisbane City YHA is centrally located in Brisbane, just steps from The Barracks and minutes from Caxton Street. For those on a tight budget, it offers a rooftop pool with some of the best views in the city, an on-site cafe, free Wi-Fi and organised tours and activities.

Brisbane is a great city! Beautiful weather, relaxing atmosphere and loads to do. Definitely go to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary!
AN overall wonderful place to visit. While art attraction may lack compared to Sydney and Melbourne, there are great outdoor activities and places to eat.
One of our favorite cities in Australia! Very easy to get around on foot and with public transportation (including the ferry system). Less touristy than Sydney, but with plenty to see and do. As Queensland's capital city, Brisbane is quite cosmopolitan. We enjoyed the free internet available throughout the city. On weekdays, free bus and ferry transportation is available in the inner-city precincts. The information center is in the lovely old Regent Theatre building on Queen Street Mall.
Brisbane is main city of Queensland and I had chance to spend there only 2 days. Mainly just see the city but didn't visit much.
