Oaks Hotels & Resorts offers Brisbane accommodation which allows you a holiday in Brisbane which is never long enough to fully appreciate the 'River City's charms and laid-back lifestyle.
Brisbane, Queensland’s capital, is a beautiful "river city" that attracts thousands of visitors every year. Corporate travellers, holiday makers and adventure seekers flock to Brisbane to enjoy a multitude of attractions and fantastic weather!
Located on the picturesque Brisbane River, which winds through the city, Brisbane is a city which has come of age, hosting a number of exciting major events and festivals. For cultural pursuits, visit the Gallery of Modern Art, Museum, Performing Arts Centre, Art Gallery or the State Library. For the family or overseas travellers, visit Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, rated one of the "Top 10 Zoos in the World". Take a drive up to the Mt Coot-tha lookout, only 15 minutes from the city and offering 360 degree views right down to the Gold Coast.
Shoppers will love modern arcades, the Queen Street Mall and Fortitude Valley precincts. Little Stanley street and the Emporium offer bargains and designer labels. Foodies can stroll over to Eagle Street Pier and delight in the choice of award winning restaurants, cafes and bars scattered across the city and surrounding suburbs. If you're thirsty you can learn about beer at the XXXX Brewery House.
Can you go to the beach in the city? In Brisbane you can! Streets Beach at South bank has sandy shores right in the middle of town. It's a great place for the family to unwind.
Why not jump on a CityCat and journey the river for a leisurely lunch at a suburban hub like Bulimba, Newfarm or Portside Wharf. For the more active try Kangaroo Point for abseiling and rock climbing. Hire a kayak, cycle the riverside pathways or relax with a picnic at one of the many spots along the river. Climb the Storey Bridge, one of only three bridge climbs in the world.
Further afield, indulge in the sport of kings with horse races at Doomben or Eagle Farm Race Tracks or enjoy a day on the water at Redland or Moreton Bay for a chance at spotting a whale.
