Brisbane with kids

I am planning a mini-break with the family in Brisbane (4 days, 3 nights). I am after any ideas of nice subrubs to stay and accommodation that is not overly expensive (looking at $160 or less a night). There will be 2 adults and 2 children (1 and 3 year olds). We have been to Brisbane plenty of times before so it does not need to be in the city centre. I was looking at Redcliffe but it will cost us nearly $240 just for airport transfers. Shorncliffe and New Farm look good but the accommodation I have able to find is either very pricey or does not seem particularly family friendly. So, any ideas would be appreciated - we are not fussy just not too expensive and close to public transport. Thanks :)

I have just typed in "Kangaroo Point Family Accommodation" into Google and quite a few places popped up including Wotif.

You haven't said when you are coming but there is quite a bit available over the next few weeks for under $170 P/N.

Kangaroo Point is a great spot, an easy walk to the riverside and Southbank and a short Taxi ride to the railway station.

I would suggest looking at Ascot or Bulimba so you could walk down to the river and catch the City Cat. Ascot would be an easy transfer or taxi ride from the airport.

Be careful with KP accom as some apartments are older and not great for kids as they are in high rise and noisy spots like right alongside the freeway/ bridge.
