Located in the south-east corner of Queensland, about 100 kilometres from the border of New South Wales, Greater Brisbane includes the City of Brisbane and the local government areas of Ipswich, Logan City, Redland City, and Moreton Bay. Together, they are home to over 2.2 million residents.
If you have a look at the entire 'South-East Queensland conurbation', this urban sprawl spreads further to the booming holiday resorts of Sunshine Coast in the north and the Gold Coast in the south. More than three million people – over 50% of the state’s entire populace – are concentrated here.
Living in Brisbane means opting for life in one of Australia’s tourist hotspots. Due to the hot, subtropical climate, Queensland is called the “Sunshine State”, and its capital city Brisbane does not prove an exception to this rule.
In Australia, Brisbane is often considered somewhat less sophisticated than Sydney, the leading metropolis, or Melbourne, the 'cultural capital'. Its brash vitality, the casinos in the neighbouring seaside resorts, and its live music scene have earned Brisbane the nickname of 'BrisVegas'.
While living in Brisbane, you might pay a visit to the beachfronts of the 'Gold Coast' or 'Sunshine Coast' to witness the thousands of 'schoolies' celebrating their graduation with amazing beach and street parties. This annual event is the Aussie equivalent to US college students descending upon Florida and California during spring break.
Living in Brisbane means you can also take advantage of its function as a gateway to Queensland’s natural beauty. The Scenic Rim in the hinterland more than deserves its status as a World Heritage Site. Its mountain ranges and lush rainforests make it an attractive destination for hikers and eco-tourists. You can even explore Australia’s whale-watching capital and stepping stone to the South Great Barrier Reef.
