In the US we have largely done away with one way fees. So when renting through the car rental apps for overseas rentals beware of the hidden fees. I did get notified by the app manager that there may be one way fees but indicated they would be around $100 Au.

We had a long haul flight, neck pillows are a must. If hiring a car make sure it has sat nav. Buy a country of origin SIM card from a super market on arrival, saves on roaming data costs etc. Load money onto a travel card, use these for fuel etc. If on long haul with stops and changes print out flight details, gates, terminals etc to save stress. Photograph debit/credit cards, passport, driving licence just in case you lose them.

A great place to eat out with a good range of restaurants. However do your research as many great ones spread out in various suburbs. Set up your toll pass before you go, website is clunky, the last thing you want to on holiday is spend ages trying to set this up.

Would definitely recommend checking out Southbank where there is a beautiful artificial beach with lifeguards and other family activities. There are also a lot of restaurants to choose from too. If you do plan to visit Brisbane CBD I would recommend leaving the car at your accommodation as the CBD is a bit of a maze of one way streets, limited on street parking and incredibly expensive private car parks. Save yourself the hassle and try out some public transport.

Great city, much to see and do. But parking fees in the city were a big shock. It's a bit less than an hour to the Gold Coast a little bit longer to the Sunshine Coast. But the roads are very good. Makes sightseeing a pleasure.
