The “smart state”, Queensland, and in particular its capital city, Brisbane, is a multicultural hub of living and learning. As Australia’s fastest growing capital city with its safe and friendly environment, Brisbane has become a popular choice for international students.
Geographically located in the south-east corner of the State, Brisbane is the gateway to many tourist destinations. The inner city offers exciting opportunities to lead an indulgent lifestyle with parklands, museums, art galleries, casino, malls, shopping centres, exclusive boutiques, convention facilities and a host of restaurants, cafés and riverside dining.
Queensland also benefits from a wonderful warm climate, beautiful sandy beaches, luxuriant rainforests and a fantastic outdoor lifestyle. There is a wide variety of activities for students to choose from, or they can just sit back and relax in the “Sunshine State”.
Queensland has a wonderful mix of recreation, retail, international cuisine, culture and entertainment, as well as enjoying a beautiful climate. Brisbane is Australia’s fastest growing city, but the people in Brisbane still retain a friendly easy-going attitude.
The city overlooks the Brisbane River, and you can cruise on the “City Cat” ferry from waterfront markets to parks, piers and bars. With living costs amongst the lowest of any of Australia’s State Capitals, you can enjoy all that the city has to offer.
Brisbane is within easy reach of the Gold coast and Sunshine Coast, as well as attractions such as Australia Zoo, Dreamworld and Movie World. Regular transport services to destinations such as the Great Barrier Reef are also available.
