East Brisbane: A Historic Brisbane Suburb

East Brisbane is a primary suburb of Brisbane, located just three kilometres east of the Brisbane central business district, making it the perfect location to see all of what Brisbane has to offer. Nestled along the Brisbane River, the city's CityCat public transit catamaran service makes frequent stops at East Brisbane. The Woolloongabba bus service is just a short walk away as well.

Where To Stay

The neighbourhood has a blend of historic homes dating back to the 19th century sitting alongside more contemporary Brisbane accommodation. Though East Brisbane accommodation is becoming increasingly populated with modern apartments furnished with all the latest amenities, the region's iconic Queenslander-style homes can still be found in the suburb. Some East Brisbane holiday rentals are even located amidst palm-filled gardens, giving you a tropical paradise to relax amidst the busy city.

Unique To East Brisbane

One of the suburb's best-loved locations is Williamina Park, a lovely park filled with grassy meadows and palm-lined pathways. It's the perfect spot to picnic or take an evening stroll through the garden. Though the suburb is primarily residential, East Brisbane still maintains its own local shop and restaurant scene. There's also a shopping complex in East Brisbane on Heidelberg Street. 

See All Brisbane Has To Offer

Brizzie is one of the friendliest cities in the country, and you'll be right in the heart of it in East Brisbane. The Queensland Museum, just ten minutes from East Brisbane, is a fantastic place to start learning the history behind this historic sub-tropical city. Take a ride on the Wheel of Brisbane to get a view of the city from above - 60 metres up in the air, to be precise!

Head to Fortitude Valley for the best of Brisbane's clubs, restaurants, and nightlife scene. Don't miss the Chinatown Mall, where Chinese supermarkets sit next to trendy shops and restaurants serve up authentic Yum Cha cuisine. Brisbane has a lively historic pub scene, so check out the Breakfast Creek Hotel, the Regatta Hotel, or the Royal Exchange Hotel for a round of holiday drinks.

Take a 20-minute drive out to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, one of the few places left in Australia where visitors can still hold koalas. That's not all you'll find there: you can hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies and see species like Tasmanian Devils, baby crocodiles, wombats, parrots, and emus. 

Live Like a Brizzie Local

One of the best things about Brisbane isn't the city's attractions: it's the city's personality. There's no better way to experience Brisbane than by living like a local in one of the city's neighbourhoods. Take yourself outside the tourist section by staying at a holiday rental in a suburb like East Brisbane - you'll be glad you did.
