Hotels in Brisbane

Laid back, cosmopolitan, and achingly hip: Brisbane is true hidden gem of a city with plenty to offer visitors. While Sydney and Melbourne have long been the main destinations on every Aussie travel itinerary, Brisbane (or ‘BrisVegas’ as it’s affectionately known) has been slowly growing more popular. There’s plenty going on in the capital of Queensland, so book a hotel in Brisbane and get stuck right in.

Most people choose to stay in hotels in the Central Business District. This is where business and pleasure mingle, and where most of the popular sites can be found. It’s a compact part of town, and is fairly flat: making it easy to get around on foot. In saying that, Brisbane has excellent public transport. You don’t need to book hotels in the CBD to enjoy the vibrant atmosphere. There’s plenty going on in the other districts of the city, too.

The Inner North neighbourhood is known for its nightlife and restaurants, while the Inner South is home to Australia’s only city centre beach. There are also lots of art galleries and markets in the Inner South, making hotels in the area a top pick for culture vultures. The Inner West has plenty of trendy hotspots, particularly in the Paddington and Milton areas, while the Inner East offers outdoor activities aplenty. Hipsters should look for accommodation in the West End: this is the bohemian centre of Brisbane, and where you’ll find most of the quirky shops and cafes.

Hotels in Brisbane make the perfect base for discovering a bit of the local Queensland countryside. If you hire a car you’ll find plenty of excellent sights within striking distance. Set off in any direction and you’ll find all sorts of goodies within an hour: from wineries and vineyards to sparkling blue lakes and stunning national parks. The Scenic Rim Mountains and rainforest make a great day out for adventurous hikers: just remember to tell your hotel where you’re going and what time to expect you back.
