With clear blue skies above and a pulsing river at its heart, the Queensland capital thrives on urban adventure and celebrates subtropical climate as an integral part of its lifestyle and culture. Nestled between World Heritage rainforests, mountain peaks, and a pristine bay that is home to incredible Australian wildlife and the oldest indigenous culture on earth, Brisbane’s backyard is spectacular.
A vibrant bar and dining scene, a swathe of stunning new hotels, and the welcoming attitude you’d expect from a city full of quintessentially Australian locals, makes Brisbane the perfect place to begin your Australian holiday.
Brisbane is sundowners under the Story Bridge with fresh Moreton Bay bugs for sharing. It’s hitting the peaks with a mate and glamping in lush rainforests under the stars.
Brisbane means togs and towels under endless blue skies while taking a dip in rooftop pools, an inner-city beach or pristine island waters. A cultural awakening, exploring ancient lands and wild landscapes.
There’s never been a better time to discover or re-discover Brisbane with your family and friends. Find your happiness, get excited and share your Brisbane moments with us. #mybrisbane
