Brisbane Holidays

Welcome to Brisbane

The beautiful river city and Queensland capital, Brisbane is alive with urban culture, glittering rooftop bars, award-winning restaurants and world-class galleries. As varied as it is enticing, a holiday in ‘Brissie’ offers a world of luxury, entertainment, and eye-opening cultural and nature experiences.  From the city centre and eclectic urban hubs, to the mountains and bayside surrounds, Brisbane’s 5-star stays, sparkling river views and energetic vibe will rejuvenate and enrich your next holiday.


An urban metropolis, Brisbane’s distinct neighbourhoods stem from the city centre, Fortitude Valley and South Bank. Unique suburbs, each known by local for their own particular flair, surround this thriving hub. From heritage buildings bursting with history to hidden laneways of bars and dining hubs, award-winning restaurants and sparkling rooftop bars, Brisbane is eclectic to say the least. Boasting beautiful urban botanic gardens, World Heritage rainforests, cultural experiences in arts and music hubs and Moreton Bay within an hour from the city – Brisbane has it all.

Take a trip up Mount Coot-tha and walk the trails to the lookout and observatory, the restaurant view will astound you as will the access to the stars at night. West End’s eclectic personality, full of boutique shops and late-night bites will excite you, while footy fans, music lovers and friends of comedy will feel at home at Caxton Street in Paddington. New Farm and Teneriffe offer upmarket riverside escapes, relaxed picnics areas along the river, and performances of music, comedy and theatre at the Powerhouse. Ascot and Hamilton are favourites to watch the races and boast village boutiques and dining, while the Bayside is your gateway to the turquoise waters, white sands and world-class diving sites of Moreton Bay and the surrounding islands.
