Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and the sunniest city in Australia, characterized by a subtropical climate with summer temperatures between 25 and 32° C and winter temperatures between 14 and 22° C. Brisbane, located on the Brisbane River, is a vibrant metropolis with three universities.

The recreational opportunities on the river from Brisbane are numerous. In several parks and botanical gardens you can go jogging in your spare time, biking, rollerblading or walking. In the city centre, the former Expo site, a huge park was created (South Bank) right on the river with swimming facilities and an artificial sandy beach, restaurants, coffee shops, BBQs, and all without charge.

Despite the short history the city has lot to offer culturally with theaters and museums as well as an attractive cultural center. One of the most prestigious galleries of Australia can be found here.

Brisbane is an ideal starting point for day trips to the Gold Coast (about 1 hour south), the Sunshine Coast (1 hour north), to the offshore islands or inland to hike in the subtropical rainforest.

Those who wish to live in a big city are in good hands in Brisbane.
