Brisbane is the capital, and most populous, city in the Australian state of Queensland. It is the third largest city in Australia, with a population of 2.2 million. People who live in Brisbane are called Brisbanites.
Located on the Brisbane River, Brisbane is approximately 23 km (14 mi) from the river’s mouth at Moreton Bay. The Great Dividing Range provides a beautiful backdrop to the city which spreads along the river’s floodplain.
The Brisbane River is the centre of a lot of Brisbane’s activities, with kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, cruising along on a ‘Brisbane Cat’ to explore the city. There’s rock climbing at Kangaroo Point Back , and abseiling the cliffs – if that’s too adventurous, you can jog, rollerblade or bike your way along the river. The Story Bridge is one of only three bridge climbs in the world.
Brisbane as hosted many large cultural and sporting events, including the Commonwealth Games, a World Expo ’88and the final Goodwill Games in 2001.
In 2008 Brisbane was classified as a Global City, and in 2009 was rated the 16th most liveable city in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit
Queensland Cultural Centre in South Bank, boasts internationally renowned exhibitions at both the Gallery of Modern Art and Queensland Art Gallery, and the Queensland Performing Arts Centre and Queensland Museum and Sciencentre are also a great way to spend leisure time.
Whether you attend a free comedy at the Brisbane Powerhouse in New Farm, or a live music and performance events, at the Judith Wright Centre for Contemporary Arts, or visit Metro Arts Centre or the numerous independent art galleries like Artisan, Jan Murphy and Jugglers Art Space, you’ll love all that Brisbane has to offer.
But, if you just love shopping, you’ll enjoy the 700+ stores on the Queen Street Mall. Amongst the international brands, glossy store fronts and department stores you’ll also find free events, restaurants, cafes and bars to keep you entertained.
If you’re a Foodie, Brisbane has some of Australia’s No 1 restaurants, including Aria, Stokehouse and Sake. The calibre of the restaurants, cafes and bars are foodie heaven! So, after you’ve consumed all those calories, put on your hiking shoes, and hit the bushwalking trails of D’Aguilar National Park, Tamborine National Park or Main Range National Park for an energising daytrip filled with scenic lookouts, waterfalls and wildlife spotting.
