Condo/Apartment
Also available for single night from $200/night by arrangement. 'Green Gables' is a charming apartment in a lovely 2BR Old Queensland style unit in a peaceful treed area one block from the Wesley Hospital and the delightful Brisbane River walk/bikeway. Right near bus, train, corner store and Park Road Restaurants and coffee precinct. Great for a short city stay. Well worth checking out the newly constructed Frew Park - just a walk away on Milton Road and fabulous for kids. You'll find bus and train stops close by with frequent services to help you get where you need to go and park your car down the back of the apartment to avoid the parking meters. You should also try the City Cat fast ferry service along the river to Southbank with the new Milton Ferry Terminal completed just a short walk...Also available for single night from $200/night by arrangement.

(For Kids) Don’t forget to check out the kid’s playground at Frew Park (on Milton Road) or the exceptional kids playground and swimming at Southbank. You can also cuddle a koala or pat a kangaroo at Lone Pine – catch a boat up the river. More
