Hotel seasons

Due to it’s location, Brisbane enjoys year round great weather and thus attracts visitors during every season. Because of this, hotel prices will change slightly during the year but not as much as other regions. The middle of the summer tends to see a lowering of rates, though not by much.

While international visitors tend to flock to Sydney, Melbourne, and the Great Barrier Reef, most Australians consider Brisbane to be holiday capital. The third largest city in Australia is not far from the Tropics so it’s warm in the winter and blazing hot with high humidity in summer.

What Brisbane may lack in history, it more than makes up for in beaches and other outdoor diversions. In other words, this is a place to come and enjoy yourself and to appreciate modern Australia, rather than spend all day going from one museum to another.

Prices in all of Australia’s larger cities are similar for most things, so finding bargains requires a bit of work. Hotel and hostel prices can seem high in the warm summer months (December through February) and a pretty good deal in winter. As with elsewhere in Australia, prices on fast-food and public transportation are strangely high, so eating burgers and riding buses will not be as cheap as they’d be in most of the rest of the world.

weather advise for AmsterdamWeather advice

As a popular travel destination, Brisbane sees visitors all year round. But some months may be better suited to your preferences. If you prefer the heat, then summer travel, November through March, should be prefect for you. With temperatures running up into the lower 90s, it’s a great time to enjoy the sun and jump in the water.

Winter, fall and spring offer lower temperatures and cool breezes. Winter, far from typical, stays comfortable with mid range temperatures that allow visitors and locals to get away with just a sweater or light jacket.
