Brisbane

Brisbane is an Australian city that has well and truly come of age. In recent years, the third largest city in Australia has exploded with new restaurants, bars and entertainment precincts. No longer considered a second-tier city, Brisbane is cemented its position as one of the top cities in Australia and Asia. There’s no doubt that Brisbane is a cool city.

Brisbane is a city that combines culture and outdoor adventure. Its creative spaces provides the perfect recreational facilities for city hipsters, with plenty of live music, hip new restaurants in relaxed waterside settings with riverside gardens and even man-made beaches.

This is Queensland’s sun-drenched capital, which is attracting visitors in droves.

How to get to Brisbane?

Fortunately, there are plenty of International flights to Brisbane Airport from around the world. Many airlines fly directly to Brisbane from Asia, Europe and North America.

How to get around Brisbane?

What makes Queensland’s capital even more attractive is the airport is a 20-minute ride to the Brisbane city centre and the inner city has a free bus service that makes it easy to explore, along with a free CityHopper ferry service along the river.
