Few cities can boast city skylines, theme parks, island resorts, mountain ranges, pristine beaches and rolling
countryside all within an easy hour's drive. Brisbane, Queensland's capital city, is a popular
international tourist destination due to its warm subtropical climate and proximity to beautiful beaches.
After experiencing Brisbane's laid-back lifestyle, many visitors end up staying for good.
It's easy to reach popular tourist beach cities - Sunshine Coast to the north and
Gold Coast to the south - just an hour's drive out of the city along wide open
highways lined with beautiful scenery and interesting tourist stops.
Brisbane's subtropical climate with blue skies and warm weather makes it a perfect summer
attraction almost any time of the year. If you're used to a colder climate the summers
can be quite hot with temperatures regularly over 30 degrees celcius, but it's worth it for the
mild winters and warm springs and autumns.
