Rydges South Bank Brisbane

Rydges South Bank’s official invitation to visit Brisbane 

Rydges South Bank has issued an open invitation for locals and visitors alike – whether from Sandgate, Shepparton, Sydney, Singapore, San Francisco or Sippy Downs to stay, play and vacay in Brisbane, and experience the gorgeous Queensland capital from a refreshingly local perspective. 

Open and celebrating all that is wonderfully Queensland, Rydges South Bank boasts the very best location for a stay in Brisbane. It neighbours the city’s acclaimed GoMA, Cultural Centre, State Library and Queensland Performing Arts Complex, is a breath away from the city centre, is immersed in the heart of South Bank and its family of restaurants, bars, markets and open spaces, and stands truly in the heart of the new Brisbane. 

Rob McGufficke, General Manager of Rydges South Bank said now was the time to visit Brisbane, to support the city following the floods and to share the joy of being able to travel. 

“On behalf of Rydges South Bank, this is an official invitation to celebrate Autumn in Brisbane! There’s nothing like staying in the heart of the city and the weather is as close to perfect as you can get!” he said 

“With travel on the menu, Rydges South Bank is back to being a bucket-list inclusion for visitors and locals alike, with 304 beautifully designed guest rooms including 64 suites all with balconies.” 

“There’s excitement throughout the whole hotel and our foyer is buzzing! Our staff are keeping things refreshingly local, sharing all their favourite haunts and insider knowledge of Brisbane so guests can really make the most of their stay!” 

“So, if you want to experience Brisbane’s wonderful Autumn event calendar like 9 To 5 The Musical, Ice Cream Festival, The Showmen, BrisAsia Fest, QAGOMA’s APT, the mighty Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Queensland Theatre or Queensland Ballet, Walking Tours, AFL at The ‘Gabba or NRL at Suncorp Stadium, our shopping precincts, our wonderful dining scene or take a day trip and experience the wonders of the Scenic Rim (named by The Lonely Planet as one of the top 10 regions in the world to visit in 2022), then we are here to say, welcome!” 

“The hotel is shining the light firmly on the city’s calendar, partnering with the biggest shows and providing guests with direct access to the best seats in any house. Our house is your house!”   

The signature and award-winning Bacchus Restaurant will open in May, and Soleil Pool Bar remains very much on Brisbane’s cool list. 

FUN FACT:  Rydges South Bank was the first hotel in South Bank, the first to put bricks and mortar to a part of the city that had yet to bloom into the internationally acclaimed green and living space that it is today. Since then, the hotel has remained a leader in its field, and beacon of Brisbane.
