About Brisbane

Brisbane is a modern, sub-tropical capital city with the river at its heart. Boasting an enviable lifestyle with year-round sunshine, the Brisbane region expands to include Moreton Bay, Ipswich, Logan, Scenic Rim and Somerset council areas. The city and surrounds offer a range of appealing visitor experiences and are home to numerous coastal villages, an expansive bay of islands featuring Mulgumpin (Moreton Island) and Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) and a hinterland of historic countryside towns, lush national parks and fertile farmland.

Brisbane is Australia’s third-largest city and is home to nearly two and a half million culturally diverse people. Its world-class sporting venues, conference facilities, cruise ship terminal, parklands, cafes, laneways and extensive river walks make Brisbane a vibrant and welcoming, metropolitan city.

Brisbane’s reputation as an international events capital has been recognised with Brisbane being elected as Host City for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The city has an extensive music, sporting and cultural events calendar that make the most of the year-round temperate climate.
