Not knowing we were arriving during a big cricket event called Ashes (we thought it was a religious affair), my daughter and I couldn't find a Brisbane hotel room in November 2006. We rented a car and drove north about 20 minutes from the airport and stumbled on Redcliffe and were referred to Sunset Bed and Breakfast. What a stroke of luck! The room and bath were great with a relaxing veranda, view of the bay, easy walk downtown, fantastic fresh breakfast and easy access to both Brisbane and Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo, my daughter's #1 must see. Donna and her husband even provide transportation to the airport if you don't need a car. Definitely would forgo Brisbane proper and head north for a relaxing and well positoned tourist destination.
