Brisbane is about to welcome an unprecedented season of events, entertainment and celebrations, and so, fresh from completing a breathtaking $30 million redesign and to ensure locals and visitors alike can share the excitement, Rydges Hotel South Bank has announced two fantastic stay packages – the Showstopper Package and the City Lights Package.

Put simply, Rydges South Bank boasts the very best location for a stay in Brisbane, no matter how long. Neighbour to the city’s acclaimed GoMA, Cultural Centre, State Library and Queensland Performing Arts Complex; a breath away from the mighty Brisbane River and its wonderful walks; immersed in the heart of South Bank and its family of restaurants, bars and open spaces, and just a bridge-walk away from the city centre, Rydges South Bank stands truly in the heart of the new Brisbane. The $30 million investment over the past three years has created stunning new spaces and experiences – Bacchus Restaurant, Soleil Pool Bar, the acclaimed Podium Level – as well as the redesign of every single room and suite.

The Showstopper and City Lights packages are another ode to the hotel’s commitment to providing a superb experience immersed in the heart of the city!
