6. Unique retro caravan for two (from USD 94)

Looking for budget long-term accommodations in Brisbane? Then check out this rental. Be prepared for a vintage treat when you book at The Pilot. The 1959 caravan has been totally revamped by a boat builder—and yes, you might wake up thinking you’re at sea. Located next to the owner’s home, you will enter through a private entrance. If you are a digital nomad, it’s good to know that the bed can be collapsed to form two desks. It is a five-minute walk to cafes and the shopping strip. Transport links are close by if you want to get to the city centre. The caravan runs on full power and running water with a gas cooker and a mini-fridge.

Come for the food, arts, and nature

Don’t rush your holiday when in Brisbane. Spend a few days in Brisbane CBD and check out the shopping centres and restaurants. You also need to head out and experience the glorious nature the city has to offer. Just remember to put on your sunscreen because the sun rises really early. Once you’re done with your adventure for the day, head back to your chosen cabin accommodation in Brisbane to rest.
