Australia’s third biggest city after Sydney and Melbourne, Brisbane is every bit as exciting as those more famous destinations. It’s a city of dazzling contrasts, which makes it fascinating to explore. One minute you’ll be among the sleek, sparkling skyscrapers of the CBD, the next you’ll be mingling with the artists and musos in a bohemian quarter. This waterfront metropolis, built around the bends of the Brisbane River, is known for its pumping nightlife, particularly when it comes to live music venues, but it’s just as captivating for culture-vultures, thanks to the local galleries and museums. There are also places of scenic beauty close by Brisbane holiday rentals, whether you fancy climbing a mountain or getting up close and personal with cute koalas.
Why feel like a tourist in Queensland’s capital when you can settle in like a local? That’s the experience which holiday rentals in Brisbane offer. Instead of having to limit yourself to the confines of a single guestroom, and feeling like one of many visitors in a sprawling hotel, you can enjoy greater living space, proper cooking facilities, and the sense of privacy that comes with having a home away from home. Using ebookers, you can find Brisbane holiday apartments located throughout the city. Fancy basing yourself in the heart of the gleaming CBD? Or perhaps you’d like a pad just steps away from the bars and clubs of the Valley? It’s all available on ebookers.
Want to let your hair down in Brisbane? Fortitude Valley, known simply as the Valley, is the place to be. This is no ordinary suburb: it’s an unashamedly fun and flashy entertainment hub filled with places to sip cocktails and hit the dance floor into the early hours. The next day, you can recover with a relaxing turn around the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, a premiere cultural destination which puts on daring visual arts exhibitions as well as concerts and films. Meanwhile, over in the West End, you’ll discover the bohemian heartland, with quirky shops, artisan coffee houses and an air of creative rebellion. No visit to Brisbane would be complete without a visit to Mount Coot-tha, where the lookout offers sweeping views across the city. And, just outside the urban core, you can find Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, where you can hold the cuddly critters and feed kangaroos.
After you’ve settled into your Brisbane holiday rental, you’ll find it’s a doddle to get around the city on foot, and explore at your leisure. You can also make use of the expansive public transport system, which includes the famous CityHopper – a free ferry service that will take you up and down the river. This is also a bike-friendly city, so renting a bicycle is another good option for getting around. Want to get out and see more of Queensland while you’re here? Hiring a car is the answer, and you can drive to the thrilling Dreamworld theme park in just 40 minutes.
