Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland, with over one million residents. The city is built around the Brisbane River, which provides a scenic backdrop for markets, restaurants, and many entertainment activities. There are a wide range of attractions which are free for all to enjoy, including Southbank parklands (featuring a man-made beach in the centre of the city!), a large museum and contemporary art gallery. Brisbane is less than one hour from some of the best beaches in the world on the Sunshine Coast (Noosa, Mooloolaba) and the Gold Coast (Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach). Well known theme parks, including Dreamworld, Seaworld and Movieworld, are all located close to Brisbane.
Brisbane is located in Southern Queensland, about half-way up Australia’s east coast. This central location makes Brisbane a great base from which to explore the many tourist attractions located throughout Queensland and Australia, including the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest to the north, the Australian Outback to the west, and Byron Bay and Sydney to the South. Studying in Brisbane gives students an excellent opportunity to see much of our great country.
Brisbane is a very safe city, home to thousands of international students. Accommodation is affordable by Australian and many international standards, with a range of options available. The public transport system includes electric train and extensive bus networks, and taxi cabs are readily available.
Brisbane is a multicultural and cosmopolitan city. Brisbane’s ‘China Town’ is located close to the city, and throughout the Brisbane area there are many restaurants specialising in foods from different countries, so students can get a taste of home as well as experiencing Australian cuisine.
