Brisbane stop over

by hazytraveller

Hello guys! I will be flying in to Brisbane May 25 at 6pm and leaving the following day at 5pm for Sydney. After reading some of your helpful postings, I have decided I would like to stay near the Southbank area. It seems like a beautiful place and close to a few things I would like to check out for such a short amount of time. What would be the best transportation to and from the airport? Any suggestions about brisbane would be appreciated too. Thanks in advance!

The best way to the city is the Airtrain, its costs $14aus and only 20mins to reach the city centre. The website is www.airtrain.com.au Its an excellent site and you can book online. You can go direct to Southbank if you wish, or stop at Roma Street. There is a Holiday Inn here at Roma Street, don't know what its like or price. The Roma street parklands are beautiful, they are a walk through Roma Street station. The City from Roma street is all around you, go for a walk. Check out the City Mall, the Old Windmill, the wharf areas with views to Story Bridge. Southbank is another lovely parkland area, has outdoor eating areas, manmade beach, nice gardens, excellent views of the city, free shows and markets with buskers on weekends. The Bouganvilleas are in bloom at the moment. I did all this yesterday, and it was a great day.

Yep, the train (about $14) is quite a bit cheaper than a cab ($35). Best option would be getting off at South Brisbane Rail via Roma. Turn right on Grey Street as you exit the station and you'll find the Rydges and Mantra Hotels on either side of the Glenelg Street intersection - perhaps a 5 minute walk max.

With little baggage, you have the option of getting off at Central Station and walking through the CBD and over the Victoria Bridge to South Bank Parklands.

Enjoy!

Thanks guys! I just love how I could depend on VT members with my travel planning. Now I will research into those suggestions. Thanks again!

Travel Tips for Brisbane

When visiting Brisbane, you...

by AusChris26

When visiting Brisbane, you must go and visit the Southbank Parklands.. You can spend all morning walking around the gardens, and then spend the afternoon swimming and relaxing at the city beach, overlooking the Brisbane River to the city. Well, I was born and raised here. So I guess just enjoying my youth is a highlight of growing up in what I say, is the world greatest city.

Slip Slop and Slap

by chinaIze

Like anywhere you go in Australia regardless of season, bring your sunblock and your sunnies (it doesn't matter if they are designer sunglasses or not as long as it will protect your eyes from the sun)!!

Redcliffe

by Colzy

The Redcliffe peninsula is just 35 minutes north of Brisbane. It is a beautiful spot with about 22km of coastline. It is seemingly a world away from the bustling city. There is a scenic drive called 'The Northern Moreton Bay Tourist Drive' which is fantastic. Follow the signs from the Bruce Highway and it will take you via Scarborough and the marina and then along the stunning Redcliffe coastline which features Moreton Island out in the distance. Stop for some photos, a swim and and a coffee in Redcliffe. Perfect.

Take the Anzac Avenue exit from the Bruce Highway.

Two hour trip #2 Glasshouse Mtns and Beyond

by tiabunna

Still heading north from Brisbane, but behind the Sunshine Coast, you will find the Glasshouse Mountains, given that name by Captain James Cook, the first explorer to chart this coast in 1770. These are the central cores of long-gone ancient volcanoes, from memory a type of rock called trachyte (I’m sure my geologically inclined VT friends will correct me if that’s wrong), which tends to shine in bright sunshine – leading the good Captain to the thought that they resembled glasshouses. I guess, on a long voyage, you need all the mental stimulation you can find! . The area now has extensive pine plantations and also is one of Australia’s main pineapple growing areas. There are roads through the mountain area and they are popular with mountain climbers, but several are unsuitable for the inexperienced.

Further on from the Glasshouses, is the hinterland to the Sunshine Coast. Here are hills with rainforest and little villages which now are popular stops for their craft outlets and restaurants. The little township of Maleny is typical, with dairy cattle grazing on hillsides overlooking the main street. It is easy to fill a day just following the road through this area and stopping in at some of the more interesting shops and eateries.
