A Detailed Guide to Brisbane City!
Brisbane City is officially 'Australia's most livable city' - and in a nation of many wonderful places to live, that's really something. There are almost two million people in this part of the state. We also have vast, rugged national parks, great inshore and offshore fishing and sailing waters, tiny towns with pubs dating back to the 19th, sports stadiums and art galleries, 24-hour night life and native animal sanctuaries.
Brisbane is Australia's largest city in the sub-tropics, enjoying an enviable climate of hot, brilliant summers and clear, mild winters that makes it the ideal destination for visitors all year round. While Brisbane has all the facilities of a modern city it retains a friendly, easier pace of life, surrounded by parks, gardens and beaches. From atop Mt Coot-tha, Brisbane's views unfold - stretching for miles in each direction. The city centre is compact contained in a single bend in the broad, meandering Brisbane river. Shining glass towers stand side by side with historic sandstone churches and the gleaming white stucco of the city's heritage colonial buildings. Brisbane's modern skyline and riverbank promenades.
In the heart of the city the Queen Street mall, with it's stylish shopping galleries, fills with colour and activity day and night. Across the river, South Bank Parklands has become a focus for visitors and residents alike with its riverbank promenade, city beach, waterways, themed attractions, cafes and restaurants and a host of entertainment and events.
