Finding family-friendly accommodation in Brisbane is always easy. With many hotels and apartments catering to little ones, you have a lot to choose from. Some of our best suggestions include:
Meriton Serviced Apartments on Herschel Street
When you’re travelling with young children, it’s sometimes necessary to create a home away from home. By enjoying a stay in the Meriton Serviced Apartments on Herschel Street, you can do exactly that. Each apartment benefits from cooking facilities, so you can self-cater and save money. And when you need a way to entertain the kids, you can take them to the onsite pool. The apartments are just 750 metres away from our Brisbane car hire offices.
Royal on the Park
When you’re seeking a cosy hotel that’s still child-friendly, try Royal on the Park. It has an olden-day charm to it, while still sporting many of the features you’d expect to see at a modern hotel. As it’s located at the edge of Brisbane Botanic Gardens, it’s a great location for active children who need to burn some energy. Royal on the Park Hotel is 2km away from our offices.
Mantra on Edward
If you love the idea of staying in an apartment while you’re in Brisbane, but you need to save money too, try Mantra on Edward.

Things to do in Brisbane with a young family
As one of the best family-friendly destinations to explore in Australia, Brisbane has plenty for you to explore. At Avis Australia, we have a few recommendations for activities and trips:
Boondall Wetlands Reserve
Help your little ones indulge in nature with a visit to the Boondall Wetlands Reserve. As a Brisbane City Council activity, it’s low-cost and perfect for anybody who is travelling on a budget. While there, you can learn about the wetlands flora and fauna, as well as Brisbane’s key environmental and cultural features.
Daisy Hill Conservation Park
Few experiences beat getting up close and personal with koalas. Although you won’t be able to go as far as cuddling one, Daisy Hill Conservation Park allows you to spend time close to these furry creatures. As it rests on 570 hectares of grounds, you can walk around and try to spot other birds and animals that are native to Australia.
Try the South Bank Beach
If you love the idea of city living, but you also crave spending time by the coast, get the best of both worlds by heading to South Bank Beach. The South Bank Beach has plenty of child-friendly activities, or you can just lounge at the side while your kids splash in the water. Thanks to the abundance of cafes nearby, finding somewhere to grab a drink afterwards is easy.
Your guide to Brisbane’s weather
No matter what time of year you visit Brisbane, you’re likely to encounter favourable weather conditions.

Although there’s a brief period of cyclone risk early in the year, it’s rare to encounter large adverse weather events. During the summer, the hottest temperatures are around 25 degrees Celsius.
