With a population of around 2.4 million people, Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, is the third largest city in Australia. Queenslander's are known to have a relaxed, easy-going attitude to life and you can attribute this to the huge amount of tropical sunshine we enjoy each year (and yes, perhaps our love of craft beer and a good BBQ has something to do with it too).
With the floods in 2011 a distant memory, Brisbane recovered from a mining downturn and built a digital economy and service industry for the future. Brisbane city has seen a swathe of new apartments built in the CBD and new cafe's, clubs and hubs of culture to service these in the inner city. We're now seeing the effect of the COVID-19 Pandemic but always moving forward and getting on with business however we can.

If you're ever in town we give the thumbs up to the places recommended below.
Some world class exhibitions have been featured and there is always something new. We love to have a wander and a glass of wine or two in the foyer bistro. This place has really lifted the art game in Brisbane!
This centre for art hosts a fantastic array of performances, exhibitions, gigs and workshops. A meal at the in-house restaurant Bar Alto is a delight after (or before) a show. Check out Watt for breakfast on the river in the morning and take the kids for a play in the spectacular New Farm Park playground which features giant fig trees.
Music, art, performance, circus, theatre, indigenous arts, experimental stuff and a whole lot more. Exhibitions, kids activities, workshops, conferences, training and community groups. In the heart of 'The Valley' as we call it.
This is the site of Expo 88 turned into a major tourist attraction thanks to a man-made beach, weekend and night time markets and a host of restaurants and regular special events. There's a great lawn to hang out on and some up-market restaurants at the eastern end (towards the Kangaroo Point Cliffs). Hire a bike from City Cycle and take a casual ride right along the Brisbane River boardwalk.
These guys are responsible for the new tvc's that promote Brisbane as a 'sleepy little town' (in the best possible way!).
