just a night or 2 need advice

I'm flying through Brisbane in early April... what are some economical hotel options? With only about 1 1/2 days to spend what shouldn't be missed? I may be travelling solo so safety is always a concern.

You might have to define your budget a little better. In the mean time, have a look at http://www.wotif.com/ to give you an idea of accommodation prices.

What do you like to do? Hopefully the ferry to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary will be back up then and you could cruise down there. Southbank is also a good place to spend some time. Also, check out the "what is there to do in Brisbane" link in the top right.

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is open as per The Great South East TV show on this weekend.

You can get a Brisbane City Council bus up to Mt Cootha which has a lookout over the city and a restaurant up there also. It is only a short drive out of town and in the inner city area.

If the City Cat (town ferry service) is up and running, hopefully it will be by then. Catch it up and down the river not in peak hours and ask for the out of peak hour pass. You can get on and off as you please. Southbank, Riverside, see the river and how it is progressing after the floods.

Southbank has the Brisbane Wheel (enclosed ferris wheel) which takes you up over the city for views. It also has markets at night there and restaurants as does Riverside and markets on Sunday.

Enjoy our city
