Explore Brisbane

Brisbane is a unique blend of the old and new. At its heart, beautifully restored sandstone buildings provide a delightful backdrop to the city's glass towers. The inner city clusters around the loops of the Brisbane River, connected to leafy, open-skied suburban communities by riverside bikeways.

Brisbane residents enjoy a wide range of landscapes and lifestyles including ultra-modern shopping centres, pedestrian malls, alternative culture clusters, up-market commercial precincts and the South Bank Parklands. With over 1000 parks and gardens and the riverside Botanic Gardens at its centre, Brisbane is a green city.

The world famous Gold Coast lies just to the south and the peaceful Sunshine Coast to the north, with easy access to a variety of natural attractions and scenery including beautiful Moreton Bay, rainforests and rolling rural landscapes.
