Whereis - has extensive mapping of South East Queensland, and the rest of Australia. Also has directions search capability
To cover the rest of Brisbane.... most locals think of Brisbane as having "the City" and "the Suburbs". Since the inner city is already covered with the areas above, then it's simply a matter of each cardinal direction having their own article: Northside Suburbs / Eastside Suburbs / Southside Suburbs / Westside Suburbs. I think this would work since it follows suit with Translink bus routes: All the bus routes starting with 1## go south, 2## go east, 3## go north and 4## go west.

Suggest changing the main Brisbane link from ourbrisbane.com to visitbrisbane.com.au
The pages for cities like Melbourne all link to the offical tourism website. In Brisbane's case this is visitbrisbane.com.au not ourbrisbane.com which is more aimed at residents of Brisbane and its surrounds. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ascough (talk • contribs)
The implication that suburban areas are less safe than the valley seems like a very odd comment to me. The strong police and security presence in the valley is there for a reason. If the assault rates were higher in the suburbs, I'm sure the police would be elsewhere. --inas 20:34, 26 January 2010 (EST)
I think what is currently implied by this section is that police presence in suburban pubs/bars is virtually non-existant. Therefore, any fights that do break out would likely result in a delayed response by police. Plus those sorts of place do tend to attract the "rowdy" local types, so fights definitely are more common. Yeah, the Valley is a lot more dangerous due to the large number of drunken people, and that's why there's a larger police presence. But in saying that, most of the people who go to the Valley really aren't out to pick a fight. I think suburban bars/pubs have a higher proportion of those likely to start fights. --Anewcleardawn 21:52, 8 September 2011 (EDT)
Then again, tourists aren't likely to be heading to Bracken Ridge for a drink, are they?
Maybe someone who is in the area might add some warnign box about the floods? Obviously, the waters are thankfully receding, but I'd imagine this would affect a range of amenities, and disrupt travel for some time?--Scharla 06:20, 21 January 2011 (EST)
I don't think a warning box is required. With the exception of the ferries, transport and travel is pretty much back to normal in Brisbane. There are no major road closures, and public transport is running intra and inter city, and no significant accommodation is closed. --inas 00:47, 22 January 2011 (EST)
