Backpacking Australia at the start of March? well you should be in Brisbane!

Brisbane Festivals - Brisbane by day

Brisbane literally has more events on that first weekend in March than you can shake a stick at! I know, because I got a stick, started shaking it, eventually gave it up as a bad joke...;)

Speaking of jokes, one of the events on that – and many other weekends – is the Brisbane Comedy Festival. Shows are on pretty much every night between February 28 and March 25 at the Brisbane Powerhouse in New Farm, just a quick bus trip away from Base Brisbane Central and Base Embassy Hostel!

Music lovers will be looking forward to the Future Music Festival at Doomben Racecourse on Saturday March 3. Headlined by Swedish House Mafia, featuring New Order and special guest Fatboy Slim, you want to get onto for your chance to get in! English songstress Jessie J is also playing at Brisbane's Riverstage on Thursday March 1 if you miss out on festival tickets. Base Embassy is THE closest budget accommodation to the Riverstage, with Base Central a mere 5 minutes longer up the road.

For the sporting fanatics, champion local teams are in action at Suncorp Stadium over the weekend. Reigning A-League champions Brisbane Roar have been wowing crowds with their European-style football; they play the Melbourne Heart on Friday March 2. If an oval ball's more your style, then head out Saturday night to watch Super Rugby champions Queensland Reds play the Western Force – we reckon they're the most exciting rugby club team going around today. And if all that doesn't take your fancy, the first cricket one-day final is at the Gabba on Sunday March 4. This could well be the last time Indian champion Sachin Tendulkar plays here in Brisbane – don't miss your chance to see one of the very best ever in action!


Book your beds NOW and come join us! Happy Travels :)
