Brisbane Travel Guide

Introduction

Brisbane is the capital of the state of Queensland. It has a population of about 2 million people, making it the third-largest city in Australia, after Sydney and Melbourne.

It’s a positive attitude and creative confidence that makes Brisbane a genuine new-world city. Large enough to be cosmopolitan yet small enough to be friendly and accessible, this 'garden metropolis' is famous for its leafy, open spaces and the pleasant pace of life that unfolds between the zig-zags of its iconic river. Even though Brisbane is rapidly developing and forward-thinking, it maintains a youthful enthusiasm and has what is arguably the most laid back and liveable atmosphere of any east-coast capital city.

Gaining international exposure during the 1982 Commonwealth Games, the 1988 World Expo and the 2001 Goodwill Games, Brisbane's year-round warm climate, spectacular scenery and pleasant locals have been the draw-cards for many domestic and international visitors, making Brisbane the fastest-growing city in Australia.
