Any readers in Brisbane?

My husband is currently in Brisbane on business and they want him to go over for a full fortnight (next week), his criteria is that management (me) agrees.

So I have agreed to go with him and will be in charge of Monkey for the working week.

Here follow my few questions:
  1. Do you know of any serviced 2 bedroom apartments that are near things for a three year old? I've googled and am basically taking a crapshoot as I have no idea what I'm looking at.
  2. What are fun things to do that aren't too spendy?
  3. Are there any tourist traps to avoid?
  4. How easy is it to get around on foot or bus?
  5. Where is the best place to get GREAT coffee?
Thanks so much for your help. I really appreciate it. I am a little stressed about having to go to an unknown place with Monkey and then cope for an week without out back up. At least we all speak English :)


  1. Quest apartments? They're usually fairly reliable without being the height of luxury.

    And aren't work going to pay for a car? You could do day trips to Australia Zoo and all the various places down the Gold Coast. If not I seem to remember (from the brief stay there a couple of years ago) that there's some pretty good shopping :-)

  2. Umm I can remeber a really cool place down near the water that Monkey will LOVE and I recall my nana drinking coffee there...and she likes good coffee..soooo bets are it was!
    Sorry a bit vague, I will yell out to the rellies and ask them for ya too!

  3. Wish I knew, sorry! How cool that you're a fellow Kiwi! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. :)

  4. Nooooooooooo... I am overtaken by jealousy. Take me with you? Jealous, jealous, jealous!

    I think its going to be very exciting - it'll be a huge adventure for Monkey!

  5. How exciting! You have been busy! Sorry I can't help answer any of your questions, but have fun and you'll be fine. I once accompanied Dan on a 2 week business trip to Singapore, when Charlotte was 18 months. I loved it! Too expensive for me to jet off with 3 children now :(

    Have fun and I'll look forward to reading about your adventures!
