Need Somewhere to Stay?
Brisbane is abundant in hostel accommodation, and QUT’s location in the heart of the CBD is easier to get to than ever. We recommend staying on the same side of the river as the campus, as it will shorten your public transport / Uber / taxi times, especially from our socials. However, Southbank and West End accommodation are also completely viable – and offer an incredibly scenic walk across the Goodwill Bridge (complete with a small coffee outlet!) that will lead you straight to your committee rooms each morning.
We’ve set up a Google Map below to help you plan your stay in Brisbane; use the menu button (top left!) to turn layers on and off, or click on the location pins directly for more information. Food and coffee are extremely easy to find, no matter where you stay… but we’ve included a few favourites for you to check out, plus various entertainment and sightseeing opportunities across Brisbane. With so much to do in our city, we advise setting aside an extra day or two before the conference just to unwind and explore – or organise group activities if travelling as part of a delegation!
You can also find some accommodation discounts / offers below the map. Please keep in mind that hostel space is limited (especially with the Commonwealth Games running concurrently in the nearby Gold Coast) – if you want to use the discounts, make sure you book in soon!
