We know that some of our most motivated volunteers, visitors, exhibitors and partners are coming from interstate and will have to book an accommodation for the duration of their weekend at Le Festival. Thus, to help you choose among the many accommodation options available in South Bank and Brisbane CBD, we have developed partnerships with a few places that will offer you a great experience in Brisbane. Below are our three main recommendations: Sofitel Brisbane Central, the Novotel South Bank and the Rydges South Bank.
