About the Area

At Mantra Terrace Hotel, you'll be staying in contemporary hotel accommodation in the Brisbane CBD. From here, the most popular attractions and things to do in Brisbane are within close proximity – many in walking distance from your hotel.

For a day out on the water, try kayaking on the river or catch the CityHopper Ferry to various riverside attractions including the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Brisbane Art Gallery, Maritime Museum and South Bank – Brisbane's very own inner city beach with swimming lagoons that you can enjoy – perfect for the whole family and a way to cool off from the Queensland heat during the warmer months.

To get out into nature, the Brisbane Botanical Gardens and Roma Street Parklands offer lots of wide green open spaces, with grassy areas to sit and enjoy a picnic, walking tracks and wildlife – including native lizards, birds and insect species. Soak in a panoramic vista of Brisbane City from the Wheel of Brisbane, or for those who are a little more adventurous the Story Bridge Climb will take you 262m feet above sea level for the ultimate view.

When it comes to shopping Brisbane offers a number of options including the Queen Street Mall and Fortitude Valley, with an extensive assortment of retail and entertainment stores. Treasury Casino is not far from the hotel, with some great shows and restaurants.

Discover the Eagle Street Pier with its collection of restaurants, bars and cafés, is a great place to eat and enjoy the scenery. Home also to the Riverside Craft Markets, held each Sunday, you can meet up with friends to share a meal before taking a walk along the pier and browsing the local crafts on showcase.

For the kids and the young at heart, there's Brisbane Go Karting, tours to Tangalooma and Moreton Island where you can take part in dolphin feeding, and the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary which contains koalas, kangaroos, Australian birds, wombats, dingoes, reptiles, Tasmanian devils and small farm animals.
