Hotels-I am sooo confused!

by darlaf

Hi, Looking for decent hotel in Brisbane-a pool would be nice and close to transportation. Would it be a better idea to stay a bit out of CBC on the river and take a ferry to town?? Budget: 125-150 US-I've looked at lots of sites but I just get more confused!!! Thanks again for your help-Darla

Re: Hotels-I am sooo confused!

There are quite a lot of really good hotels in the Inner City suburbs of Brisbane i.e. not right in the heart but a short bus or ferry ride away. Some that come to mind (Ithink they all have pools) are Il Mondo at Kangaroo Point, Riverview Boutique Hotel at Hamilton, Point Hotel at Dockside, Hotel Saville at South Brisbane. Or you could see some more City and City Centre Hotels on the following website:

hi, its me micheel george. I can give you good suggestions for hotels in germany.

Villa Kennedy is a luxury five-star hotel in the centre of Frankfurt nestled just off the south bank of the Main River in a wonderful villa landscape on Kennedyallee. A wonderful combination of tradition and innovation, the hotel's three newly constructed buildings are built around the traditional 1904 Villa Speyer, setting the stage that for this luxurious downtown retreat.

Kate has made some good suggestions. You may also consider Mantra Hotel, South Bank, which is within walking distance of South Bank Parklands and the city centre.

Hiya Darla. We stayed at the Chifley at Lennons right in the heart of Brissy in the Queen Street Mall. I can totally recommend this accommodation both for the location and comfort as well as being quite good price wise.

I would definately stay again!

Cheers, Ann :o)

Travel Tips for Brisbane

Artistic things

by Sajt

When you walking around you will find a lot of interesting thing. I didn't found lot's of museums, but Iiked the monuments. There was a few cow. Colored cow monument. A I found kangaroos. Like this on the pictures. We liked a botanic garden and the parks.

"G'day Mate"...please no!

by fadsarefun

You might have heard different ways of greeting people in Australia from watching "Crocodile Dundee" or from Steve Irwin, but it's simply not true! Most Australians like people to say "Hello". If you say "G'day mate" in a really horrific accent (think Meryl Streep's impersonation of Lindy Chamberlain) expect most locals to cringe and walk away from you. Similar phrases which will be met with the same response are "Throw another shrimp on the barbie" and "She'll be right mate". In Australia, as in most civilised countries, we speak our own language. We expect you to be able to at least greet us properly and we'll try to understand each other from theron in. Saying these things I have mentioned would be like going to Paris and saying "C'est la vie" or "Vive la France" over and over again...until some annoyed local tells you you're being a knob.

Suncorp Stadium


Suncorp Stadium in Milton is the spiritual home of Rugby League in Brisbane, and is the home of Queensland Rugby League, the Brisbane Broncos, the Queensland Roar FC, the Queensland Reds and the annual State of Origin rugby league clash between Queensland (the Maroons) and New South Wales (the Blues). Lang Park became Suncorp Stadium in 1994 after Suncorp became naming rights sponsor. Teams based there include: Queensland Roar FC (Soccer), Brisbane Broncos (Rugby league), Queensland Reds (Rugby Union). Individual players and officials face stiff fines if they accidentally publicly refer to the venue by its former name.

Suncorp Stadium is also home to the Wally Lewis statue. The statue was commissioned by the Courier Mail who raised money by seeking donations from the public. It was then entrusted to the then Lang Park Trust to ever more reside at Suncorp Stadium. It was designed and built by Art Busters who did a lot of the personal art statues for Expo 88 in Brisbane. The statue is made of bronze and is hollow. The bronze exterior had faded to a very dull finish over the years, but the Queensland government, as part of the stadium redevelopment had the statue recoated in bronze and hence the shiny finish you see today.

One hour trip #1 – Mt Cootha/Mt Gravatt

by tiabunna

Should you head west from Brisbane to the ranges, you will find yourself at Mt Cootha, in less than half an hour. This has been a popular destination for Brisbaneites (as the locals are known) for a great many years. There are numerous detailed and accurate tips on VT concerning it already, so I see little point in rehashing the details here. I thought you may, however, be interested in the 1964 photo taken from there – and showing none of the highrise skyscrapers which now dominate the skyline.

For a slightly different viewpoint, to the southeast of the city, you might care to venture up Mt Gravatt. It is reached from a turnoff at the Mt Gravatt Central shopping area, after coming from Brisbane by Logan Road. Unfortunately it is some distance from the city centre, as is Mt Cootha, so the city views are in the distance. From both Mt Gravatt and Mt Cootha, on a clear day, you can see Moreton Island and its huge sandhills to the distance in the east.

Hornybrook Highway Bridge

by aussirose

See the little traffic signs? There's 3 lanes on the bridge and here you can see 2 green arrows indicating 2 lanes of traffic on the left. If it was only 1 green arrow and 2 red crosses that would mean only 1 lane of traffic on the left and 2 on the right. So it pays to check before venturing out into the middle lane :o)
