Fantastic pub where the beer menu changes each week and bar staff are happy to guide you through the current offerings with a taste of each one so you know exactly what you're buying. Each one served in a stemmed scooner rather than pints. Low lighting, high tables, big brick walls and a mixture of trendies and people off out to watch the footie in the nearby stadium. Well worth a stop.
There are loads of backpacker hostels in Brisbane, especially in the Fortitude Valley with its buzzing nightlife.
But this award-winning hostel really goes the extra mile, with free pick up from the train station and a 'travel agency' for booking tours and surfing trips at cheap rates. The super-friendly staff will even help with finding a job on your travels!
The private rooms are like trendy loft apartments, but the amazing bar and cafe 'Birdee Num Num' comes as standard, with Sunday BBQ 'sessions', live music most nights, and an outdoor heated pool for late-night pool parties.
The best bit about this hostel? The on-site spa for a spot of pampering - a welcome to weary backpackers everywhere after weeks on the road.
