It can be seen as the heart of Australia’s East Coast: Brisbane – or as a local would say: “Brissy”. It is not only Australia’s third largest city by population (2.24 million inhabitants), but also the world’s third largest city by geographic area (1.140 km km²). With its subtropical climate and more than 300 days of sunshine a year, the capital of Queensland is definitely one of the most beautiful places to live for outdoor lovers and sun worshippers who still love to feel the big city vibe.
Everything at your door step
Not only is Brisbane itself worth a visit, there are also heaps of things to see and do. Whether you are up for a trip to magnificent Fraser Island – the world’s largest sand island, going fishing at one of the numerous ports, driving up to Noosa for a surf or holding a Koala in your arms at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary: You will never get bored, regardless of what kind of activities you fancy.
For a long time, Brisbane has been known as the poor cousin to Sydney and Melbourne, no more than a big country town lacking the international atmosphere. A rather boring place many Aussie families just do a stopover at on their way to the beaches at the Sunshine or the Gold Coast for holidays. This image has undergone major changes in the last few years, nowadays more than five million tourists come to Brisbane every year. Plenty of festivals take place throughout the year and you can find top restaurants and bars at every turn. The city has even got a huge casino now, which – together with the impressive skyline that evolved over the years – induced the younger generation of Brisbanites to give their home town a new nickname –Brisvegas.
