What to do when you’re feeling hangry instead of festive and funded? Head out for some cheap eats in Brisbane, of course. International Hotel | Spring Hill Tuesday.

With cheese and bacon loaded on the burger, and beers brewed right there in the Hipwood Brewery, you’ll feel like you’re being extravagant and still have enough left over for a second $5 beer!
