Brisbane & South East Queensland

Style: Urban Edge

Brisbane & South East Queensland are hot in demand destinations for couples and families looking for luxury getaways and fabulous dining experiences. What makes Brisbane such a popular city is that it offers fine art and dining experiences, with a small-country friendliness that can’t be bought.

Brisbane has gone through its growing pains and has well and truly come out of its shell and stands proudly as a foodie destination. Whether you’re in the CBD, Emporium or James Street precinct you will find meals you’ll drool over for days to come. Take a trick or two home with you by attending a James St Cooking School cooking class.

South East Queensland offers scenic luxury accommodation that allows you to truly relax and unwind. Take in the quiet country life and enjoy cellar doors across the South Burnett and Granite Belt. Relax in the countryside amongst stunning accommodation with a glass of wine. It’s perfect for a romantic getaway or wineries weekend with friends.

Choose the Sunny State for your next trip and explore South East Queensland’s tropical beaches. View our curated collection of accommodation options for Brisbane and South East Queensland here.
