Splash out on a little extravagance at the Founda Gardens Apartments (14 -18 Dunmore Terrace) or the Spicers Balfour Hotel (37 Balfour Street). After all, it's not every day you go on vacation! Doubt you'll spend much time in your room? Consider budget options like the Fern Cottage B&B (89 Fernberg Road) and the Ibis Budget Brisbane Airport (18 Navigator Place, Cnr. Nudgee Road) and splurge on amazing experiences instead.
So many places to see and so little time. If you're keen to experience what the city has to offer, add Queen Street Mall and the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre to your travel itinerary. If you have an extra day to spare, try to swing by Roma Street Parkland and Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium as well.
Traveling can sometimes mean slipping on the same clothes every day. So, if you're thinking of indulging in a snazzy new outfit, make your way over to Emporium. Need some more ideas? A quick way to experience an authentic taste of a region's culture is to spend time at its spirited marketplaces. Peruse the merchandise and shop like the local people do at The Markets. But that's not all. Welcome to a world where cards are dealt, jackpots go off and punters go wild. Treasury Casino is the place to be for an extraordinary night out.
Fasten your seatbelt, stow your tray table and prepare to experience Brisbane! Once you come in to land at Brisbane Airport (BNE), the happening main streets will be only 8 miles (13 kilometers) southwest from here.
