4 simple tips to avoid a Brisbane holiday from hell

Have you ever been on a holiday that went horribly wrong? I know that feeling. I’ve heard many horror stories of people who had a disastrous Brisbane holiday. More often than not, these people made some common mistakes, which led to their holiday being ruined.

I’ve been a Brisbane accommodation provider now for many years. And over the years, I’ve realised what these mistakes are.

With my first-hand experience, today I will give you a few simple tips to help you avoid a Brisbane holiday from hell.

Read right through to the end and by following these tips, you’re sure to have a great Brisbane holiday.

1. Know how much you can afford to spend

I’ve often had guests tell me that their last Brisbane holiday was very stressful because of financial worries. Indeed, financial tension can completely ruin a holiday and it must be avoided. The best way to do this is to know how much you can afford to spend on your holiday.

Before you embark on your holiday, create a realistic budget. This will help you to determine how much you can spend without causing financial stress.

Also, if you choose affordable accommodation in Brisbane, such as our holiday apartments at Bridgewater Terraces, you’ll save yourself from a lot of financial stress.

2. Allow space between family members

Another mistake that most people make on their Brisbane holiday is not allowing space between family members. If you spend every minute of every day with each other, your holiday will only breed contempt between family members.

That’s why booking a holiday apartment, such as those we offer at Bridgewater Terraces, is great. With a 2 bedroom or 3 bedroom apartment everyone has their own space and the parents can get a break from the kids. This will allow all of you to have an enjoyable holiday experience.

3. Take care when booking accommodation online

Some of our guests at Bridgewater Terraces have also told me that their last Brisbane holiday suffered because they did not take care when booking accommodation. They made the mistake of simply going by the images that hotels advertised on their website, only to find out that everything was largely exaggerated.

Hotels go to great lengths to make their properties look perfect. As such, you must never simply go by images or what a hotel advertises.

The best way to avoid this is by checking past reviews left by customers of the hotel on websites such as TripAdvisor or Booking.com.

At Bridgewater Terraces, we’re proud to state that we’ve always received exceptional reviews and ratings from our guests. Take a look at our TripAdvisor ratings and you’ll see for yourself just how much guests love our holiday accommodation.

4. Choose your season

Probably the biggest reason why a Brisbane holiday turns into the holiday from hell is because people visit in the wrong season. While Brisbane is considered to be a great tourist destination throughout the year, April-May is the best time to visit.

The months of April and May feature less school holiday crowds and the weather is ideal. You’ll be able to enjoy the best that Brisbane has to offer, without worrying about crowds or the weather spoiling your holiday.

At Bridgewater Terraces, many of our guests who come over for a holiday in April-May have a fantastic time. I recommend you to do the same to enjoy a relaxing and memorable Brisbane holiday.


To avoid a Brisbane holiday from hell, all you need to do is to follow some really simple tips. Make sure you know how much you can afford to spend, allow space between family members on your holiday, take care when booking accommodation online and choose your season wisely. By following these simple tips, you are sure to have a great time on your Brisbane holiday.
