It is also only a short walk across the bridge from the other side of the river if you are coming up from the South. There are plenty of Secure Parking sites on that side as well.

Hotel Diana at Woolloongabba is only 15 minutes walk across the footbridge over the river. Other than that anywhere around the Botanic gardens.
