About Brisbane

.

The glittering jewel of Queensland, Australia’s sunshine state, Brisbane is life viewed through a hyper-saturated Instagram lens. Here, the height and colour of the sky take some getting used to: It is difficult to tear your gaze away. You will find plenty of equally picturesque sights vying for your attention. The city centre is a noughts-and-crosses board of modernist architecture and lively restaurants. Vivid purple flowers curl around Southbank, a cultural and entertainment area lined with cafés, restaurants and a man-made beach.

Brisbane is home to the Sir Samuel Griffith Centre, Australia’s first zero-emission building.

The lush botanic gardens, near the picturesque Griffith University campus, are almost unnaturally green. The Brisbane River is ubiquitous: View it from the riverbanks, the heritage Story Bridge or a ferry. The heat hangs over you like plastic wrap – so do as the locals do and opt for a bright, light dress code and take a slow-moving approach to life.

Built in 1940, Brisbane’s 80m heritage-listed Story Bridge is one of only a handful worldwide allowed to be climbed.
