Brisbane is Australia’s third largest city and the capital of Queensland.
With a subtropical climate, Brisbane delivers an average of 283 days of sunshine every year. Outdoor activities, from swimming at South Bank’s Streets Beach to strolling through the City Botanic Gardens, kayaking on the Brisbane River or climbing the iconic Story Bridge, can be enjoyed year round.
As a convenient urban hub, Brisbane is a gateway to some of Australia’s most iconic tourism experiences including the Great Barrier Reef, World Heritage-listed rainforests, pristine surf beaches, idyllic sand islands and encounters with koalas, kangaroos and wild dolphins.
