Continue reading this article as I explain just why so many international tourists flock to Brisbane. I’ll also touch up on some great activities and attractions you can look forward to on your Brisbane holiday. Hopefully, after you read this post, you’ll be raring to book Brisbane accommodation and secure your holiday!

1. Visitors to Brisbane

Brisbane is a wonderful tourist destination which draws in both domestic and international visitors. The city presents a wonderful and vibrant culture and is full of attractions and activities for tourists to enjoy. Brisbane also plays host to many major festivals and events throughout the year. So, if you haven’t visited Brisbane yet, make sure you plan a holiday soon!

Brisbane boasts great natural beauty, with vast parklands, forest parks, wildlife sanctuaries, botanic gardens and a sprawling river. Add to this a cosmopolitan lifestyle, fine art and great culture and you can easily see why so many visitors choose Brisbane.

As a matter of fact, the year ending March 2016 saw a good increase in the number of visitors. While Brisbane witnessed 1,036,000 visitors in 2015, this number went up by 11% to 1,150,000 in 2016. This means that Brisbane accommodation providers, including myself, have seen good business lately. At Bridgewater Terraces, we’ve had great occupancy rates last year and this trend won’t be changing anytime soon.

2. Brisbane Accommodation

Between 2015 to 2016, visitors spent 23,935,000 nights in Brisbane. This is much larger than the previous year, in which visitors spent 22,192,000 nights in the city. You shouldn’t be surprised by these numbers – many holidaymakers tend to spend more than a few days in the city.

Given that the city attracts so many tourists, it is natural for you to expect that Brisbane accommodation options are plentiful. While there are many hotels and resorts you can choose from, holiday apartments are also a great choice. Apartment accommodation in Brisbane, such our apartments at Bridgewater Terraces, is far more spacious than hotels. Moreover, the amenities offered by apartments are on par, if not better than what most Brisbane hotels offer. So if you’re planning a holiday and you’re yet to book Brisbane accommodation, do consider staying in our apartments at Bridgewater Terraces. Our holiday apartments offer far better value for money than other hotels and resorts in the city.

3. Brisbane Activities & Attractions

Brisbane presents a plethora of activities and attractions. No wonder, the city experiences massive tourist expenditure and is growing over the years. Between 2015-2016, the city witnessed tourist expenditure of $1,945 million as compared to $1,700 million the previous year. This is all thanks to the wonderful Brisbane attractions and activities.

If you’re planning a Brisbane holiday, you certainly have a lot to look forward to. However, to make the most of your holiday, you must book Brisbane accommodation which lies close to tourist hotspots. For this reason, choose Bridgewater Terraces as your accommodation.
