Brisbane is a family-friendly haven full of eco-friendly escapes and urban adventures. With 261 days of sunshine a year, Brissie offers an endless summer that has earned it the title of the ‘Sunshine Capital’ of Australia.
Home to 2.4 million people, Brisbane combines the laid-back atmosphere typical of coastal Queensland with the energy of a bustling city. The city’s countless gourmet eateries are perfect for food-lovers, while its beautiful landscapes will appeal to any thrill-seeker looking to dive, climb or hike their way through a holiday. In one day you can go from an abseiling adventure atop Kangaroo Point to a night of retail therapy and restauranteering in the CBD.
It’s also a central launching pad for travellers looking to explore the nearby Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast – both just over an hour away from Brisbane’s CBD.
Affectionately referred to as a big country town by locals, Brisbane is a fun-filled destination with bucket loads of charm. Plus, Brissie keeps investing in new attractions so there’ll never be a boring day during your endless summer!
