Holidays in Brisbane city

If you need a break from life in the burbs, but don’t have time for a ‘proper’ holiday, a night or two in Brisbane city makes a perfect family weekend away.

A sky scraper hotel, fluffy white towels, bubble baths and buffet breakfasts are fun for young and old.

Outside the hotel there is plenty to keep the family entertained – parks and gardens, river activities, museums and art galleries, restaurants and shopping – in what was recently named Australia’s ‘hippest’ city.
