Come to Brisbane and you'll discover a region that's not only filled with energy, you'll also find it's filled with endless things to do.
Sophisticated and progressive, dynamic and diverse, Brisbane delivers on all fronts. Visitors and locals alike delight in the very best in food, wine, arts, entertainment and major sporting events, all surrounded by a unique environment of relaxed sub-tropical flair. There's exciting shopping, a buzzing nighttime scene, and no end to the range of outdoor adventures on offer, such as sailing, surfing, hot-air ballooning and 4WD excursions.
You'll also find this region to be a hotbed of creative free thinking, with local artists, musicians, writers, jewelers and fashion designers all making their name on the international stage. At the same time, this is a place without pretension, a city with its feet planted firmly on the ground. And that's exactly what so many people love about Brisbane.
From the sun and sand drenched islands in the east, to its cool and crisp mountain rainforests in the west - and all the attractions of a vibrant, modern city in between - Brisbane offers the best of both worlds.
