Brisbane is Queensland’s capital and Australia’s third largest city. Home to nearly two million culturally diverse people, it is a progressive city alive with energy.
Importantly, this modern metropolis still carries its trademark characteristics of being a warm, friendly and safe place to live, where residents enjoy a relaxed outdoor lifestyle in a wonderful subtropical climate.
Within Brisbane and South East Queensland are some of Australia’s leading tertiary institutions. Approximately 95% of Brisbane Grammar School students proceed on to university in Brisbane, across Australia and also overseas.
Like any major world city, Brisbane is well serviced by city infrastructure, including cultural precincts of theatres, museums and international cuisine. World class sporting venues, conference facilities, parklands and river walks, together with an extensive music and culture event calendar, ensure there is never a dull moment in this vibrant town.
And just an hour or so driving distance away are some of the world’s best beaches, country escapes and rainforest landscapes.
