The area and getting around

Visit Brisbane, Australia’s sunniest city

The capital of the beautiful Sunshine State, Brisbane is Australia's third largest city. It is blessed with year-round subtropical weather, making the city a wonderful destination any time of year. Brisbane is a riverside city, with a gorgeous promenade awash with exciting sights and activities. It is also just a stone’s throw from the coast. And in summer it seems like the whole city migrates to the wonderful white sandy beaches that stretch both north and south of the city into the distant horizon.

Explore Brisbane’s diverse suburbs

To experience the life of this city as it is lived by locals, head out to the suburbs. New Farm to the east is a yuppie area with a truly delightful park situated on the edge of the river – a huge favourite among the locals. Fortitude Valley to the north puts on one hell of a party at night, with funky bars, eateries and one of the best live music scenes in the country. South Bank is Brisbane's culture centre, and home to some great wining and dining.
