Check-in and check it out. When you live in the outer suburbs you don’t always get to experience all that Brisbane has to offer. The best way to get to know our beautiful city is by switching it up and having a ‘staycation’. Book at one of the local boutique hotels, backpackers or apartments to get out and explore Fortitude Valley this weekend. The Valley has accommodation for every budget that will have you positioned right where the action is, so check out a few of our favourites.

Now, you may think backpackers are for travellers on a budget, but they’re also perfect for staycations. If you’re the easy-going type, you can share with strangers, but did you know you can also book private split-level apartments at Bunk? They have a master bedroom downstairs with grand ceilings, city views, an en suite, kitchenette and living area. Upstairs, you’ll find bunk beds which sleep four and a second bathroom. Walk downstairs to access the pool, Birdees bar and the bustling restaurants, cafes and retail the area has to offer. With this repertoire, Bunk will have you wishing you were a backpacker.
