I had a few days stay at the Hotel Chino in the suburb of Brisbane, Woolloomgabba. The Buranda Village is close by, where you can shop the supermarket, eat Japanese foods, buy Japanese groceries, Turkish deserts. There is also a Mexcian restaurant.
Outside window has a view of blooming Golden Penda plant flower. It is a Myrtle kind of tree, not wattle.
I have not attemted to walk to the South Bank, which should be good for a drink at a night bar.
Though the traffic at the back road there mostly are single way. It is easy to find a petrol station close by.
