Suggestions please for an overnight hotel in between flights. Thanks.

How long is your stay? Would you want to catch train into city ? Or other transport to closer accommodation? Would a motel suit?

If you want a cheapie, then you could choose Formule 1 on Nudgee Road just near Airport Drive. A taxi to and from the airport would be your best option with this one. If you want something more elaborate, then maybe you could choose to take the Airtrain to Central Station in the city and stay at the Sofitel Grand Central which is right on top of Central Station and has access directly into the station. the Airtrains run from about 5.15am and there are several trains every hour directly to the International and Domestic Terminals. Another option would be to try one of several hotel/motels on Kingsford Smith Drive at Hamilton (www.wotif.com should give you some details.) From there it is a reasonably short cab ride to and from the airport.

Guess you have all you need in the above post now, which I agree with as well. As you will see from that post there is no accommodation in the grounds of Brisbane Airport , for hotels best to go in to Brisbane , and for closer to airport you need a motel.

One thing about the airtrain the traffic will not be a problem. If you are going by taxi be sure to leave in plenty of time depending on time of day

You cannot leave luggage at Brisbane Airport.

Let me be more specific...my son 20 will be traveling alone. he needs a room in between flights. Not the Sofitel, although I'm sure he'd love that, but not a dive either. Something easy. Thanks.

Well as Maryimelda suggested why not Formule 1


Hotel Formule 1 Brisbane Airport. 18 Navigator Place, (Cnr. Nudgee Road ) Hendra Brisbane QLD., Brisbane, Australia, 4011. Telephone: +61 (0) 7 38683457 ...
www.accorhotels.com.au/3512/detail/default.aspx - 51k - Cached -

Again it depends on how long between flights . If your son wants to stay in the city we give some other suggestions. At Formule1 he is likely to meet other young people.

Travel Tips for Brisbane

Go to the Sunshine Coast. ...

by Lisa_Pike

Go to the Sunshine Coast. It's just a two hour drive from the centre of brisbane, but it is much less tourist focused and beautiful than the Gold Coast. Its a must in Sout East Queensland. The beauty of the city. It is a really clean and livable city compared to some of the southern capitals. Moreton Bay and Moreton Island are the most wonderful aspects of Brisbane. Essential to visit!!!

MURALS

by balhannah

Driving around Brisbane and the suburbs, take a look at the beautifully painted murals. These are often found on the side of the Highways, painted on the 'sound barrier fences" to beautify the fences.

In some areas, like near Beenleigh, the fences are painted of Farmers and their Sugar Cane, this is grown in this area.
At Daisy Hill, where I took my photo, it is of Koala Bears, as lots are found in this area.
If travelling on the Gateway arterial road, then you will see well done ones of sea creatures, such as Whales, Dolphins etc.
Not only are fences painted, but walls of shops, and electrical boxes, it certainly makes the place look better, and usually the graffiti artist's leave this work alone.

I think it's a very nice way to beautify what would be a very ugly sight!

City views one way, Mountain views the other

by Ukarumpa

If you head west out of Brisbane on Musgrave Road, which turns into Waterworks Road, you go through Red Hill, Ashgrove and The Gap before leaving Brisbane proper and heading into Crown Land. This is land which belongs to the government - technically still the Crown - and cannot be developed. 15 minutes' drive from The Gap and you could be parked halfway up Mt Nebo at a lookout with a perfect view of the City. Most of these lookout areas are clearly (if somewhat precipitously) signposted - you can see the sign, but not until you pretty much HAVE to turn. This makes traffic slow, but there isn't much of it and you'll generally be too busy looking at the view to bother about speed!

The Brisbane Forest Park website has more details.

Two hour trip #3 The Scenic Rim

by tiabunna

“The Scenic Rim” is the name given to the mountains extending from the Dividing Range west of Brisbane then through an arc along the NSW border to the hinterland of the Gold Coast. Much of this area is now in a series of National Parks, providing walking trails through superb sub-tropical rainforests. Here you will see rugged mountains of volcanic origin, steep gorges and waterfalls.

There are several points where access is readily available. To the southwest of Brisbane, a main road to the south runs through Cunningham’s Gap in the Great Dividing Range. Futher east, there are well-known tourist resorts, where you can stay for a period, at O’Reilly’s and at Binna-Burra in the Lamington and Springbrook National Parks. Other roads pass through the Numinbah Valley (en route to Murwillumbah), and on the Mt Lindsay Highway where Mt Barney dominates the skyline.
