As this is generally within the cities CBD, accommodation either in the city or close by, is the most suitable. The best places for corporate visitors is in and around the Southbank parklands precinct which is situated on the western bank of the Brisbane River and connected to the city by a pedestrian bridge. The city centre also has many hotels and the region facing the Brisbane botanical gardens is always popular. International tourists often have a different agenda. While they make like to spend a night or two in the middle of town, they will often look for resorts and apartments in some of the more beautiful, surrounding areas. The Moreton Bay Islands are popular with international tourists for this reason. This type of tourist is also prone to stay in accommodation that is close to transport options before they travel on to other destinations within the state. This makes accommodation close to the Brisbane airport or Roma Street transport terminal popular for them. Sports lovers come to Brisbane in droves as there are often sporting fixtures that are part of national competitions.
