Brisbane: a modern city, relaxed lifestyle, subtropical climate

Built on and around the hills overlooking the Brisbane River, Australia’s third largest city is characterised by a subtropical climate, safe and relaxed outdoor lifestyle, unique “Queenslander” architecture, bustling restaurants and cafes, and thriving arts, sports and entertainment scenes.

With a multicultural population of just over two million, Brisbane is large enough to offer all the advantages of a modern city – including Australia’s most popular art museum, state-of-the-art sporting grounds, world-class higher education institutes, a major inner-city business hub and diverse eating districts – but small enough to retain the country charm for which it is renowned.

An hour’s drive south of the city are the golden beaches and theme parks of the Gold Coast. North from Brisbane are the Sunshine Coast beaches, national parks, rainforests and attractions like Australia Zoo.

Just off the coast are the pristine Stradbroke and Moreton Islands, both popular day-trip or holiday destinations for locals and visitors alike.
