Hotel Review: Novotel Brisbane South Bank

“Contemporary modern hotel in the entertainment district of the Sunshine State’s Capital, Brisbane”

All year I have been telling myself to book a weekend getaway to my second favourite city in Australia. Brisbane is a growing city in south east Queensland with tourism booming, new hotels and entertainment precincts are increasing.

I’ve been contacting some of these new hotels to do a review of them and was contacted back by Novotel Brisbane South Bank. The hotel is located near South Bank one of the best entertainment areas in the city with South Bank Parklands, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, The Queensland Museum and more.

Brisbane CBD’s Queen Street Mall is a must see, head over the Victoria Bridge and you’ll be in shopping heaven. The Mall features a selection of Australian and International shops as well as restaurants. Fancy a bit of outdoor entertainment? This is the spot to be! Music and shows are always happening here.
