The Queensland region

Brisbane is sometimes called the River City, enjoying a balmy climate most of the year, although it can get chilly in Winter!

Brisbane is a city that has come of age. Arts and culture, sports, bushwalking, cycling, rockclimbing- whatever your interest you will find it somewhere nearby in our great city.

With the well respected Gallery of Modern Art, State Library, Queensland Museum and Performing arts centre QPAC the city offers much more than the quiet town it appears to be. There are plenty of vibrant cafes and galleries in the city and inner suburbs, art-lovers and foodies alike are spoilt for choice.

As home to numerous sporting teams Brisbane never disappoints the sports fans. And if leisure activities are more to your liking then you will find endless possibilities: numerous bike trails to explore, bushwalking and heritage trails to enjoy, rockclimbing at Kangaroo Point, sailing on the Bay or wading into City Beach at Southbank to mention but a few.

Many of the suburbs are on, or close by the river and the various beaches within an hour or so of the city.

From October to April you will find most Brisbane people out enjoying the water and the sunshine!

Many Brisbane people take advantage of the facilities located along the city reaches of the river - Southbank parklands and its manmade lagoons, weekend markets, restaurants and cafes, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) , Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) and the Wheel of Brisbane.

A popular visitor past time is boarding the commuter ferries to explore the reaches of the River - a great way to see the city.

Moreton Island, a large sand island, located around 50 kilometres north east of Brisbane, is very popular with visitors and locals alike. The Tangalooma ferry will take you across to the island, where you can feed dolphins or swim in the crystal clear waters. The Tangalooma ferry is around 30 minutes drive from Brisbane CBD

Within easy driving distance of the world renowned Gold and Sunshine Coasts and not far from the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Brisbane makes a great travel base. A one hour south takes you to all the action of the Gold Coast. A one hour drive north takes you to the quieter Sunshine Coast with fantastic restaurants and endless beaches
