Located in the south-east corner of Queensland, Brisbane is Australia’s 3rd largest city and capital for the State. It has a vibrant population of 1.6 million people who enjoy a year-round subtropical climate. Temperatures range from 20-30 C in the summer months, dropping to 10-20 C during the winter.
The city was built flanking the winding Brisbane River and the waterway is still a great way to explore and experience this bustling city. The charm of city is that it’s small enough to feel intimate, yet large enough and modern so that it offers high standard shopping, dining, galleries, parks and concerts.
The redeveloped South Bank is the cultural heart of the city, with relaxing parks, restaurants and museums all a short stroll from the river. Shopping to suit all tastes and budgets is found throughout the city and the Queen Street Mall.
Brisbane is accessible by rail, road, river/sea, and its international airport.
With the rainforest and Pacific Ocean so close to the city, attractions such as the Glasshouse Mountains, Australia Zoo, Marine Parks, and The Gold Coast are all within easy reach.
