Look no More!
Few cities have the same laid back charm as Brisbane, and when you factor in that seemingly endless sunny weather, it’s no wonder that so many people choose to head to with vibrant, lively, and very friendly Queensland city.
Finding somewhere to stay is not difficult, as there is an accommodation option available for every budget and requirement. There are also many cheap hotels Brisbane to choose from, so it’s really just a case of shopping around and finding what is best for you.
Of course, this being a big city, there are many places to check out, including the main area, known as the CBD, or The City. This is where most of the businesses are based, but there are also many tourist areas too, as well as shopping opportunities – the huge Queen Street Mall is definitely worth a visit for a spot of credit card bashing! South Bank is where you will find a more bohemian, edgy vibe, with cafes, restaurants, and a small beach too. For nightlife however, it has to be Fortitude Valley, because this is widely thought to be where the best live music is, not just in the city, but the whole country!
For a nice evening walk, head down to Portside Wharf, and if you want to head into the great outdoors, check out Mount Coot-tha – this is perfectly walkable, with many trails to follow, and there is a café at the top, with fantastic views across the city and beyond.
This is by no means all that Brisbane has to offer, but it’s definitely worth donning your walking boots and getting out to explore on your own steam. The city is also perfectly placed to explore a little further afield too, including the ever bright Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. Many people choose to indulge in a twin-centre type of break when visiting Queensland, e.g. a few days in the city, and a few days on the coast – the best of both worlds!
Of course, you are also very close to some of the more natural wonders of the world, including the world famous Great Barrier Reef, as well as the idyllic and clearly breath-taking Whitsunday Islands. You can find excursions out to both from the city quite easily, so shop around for the best deal, according to your budget.
There really are only a few cities on the planet that offer you pretty much everything you could want, and whilst it is a true cliché to say ‘it has it all’, Brisbane really does. Once you have visited, try and think of something it didn’t have – you’ll be thinking for quite a while!
