Brisbane, Queensland

Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland, the playground of eastern Australia. About 3.5 million people live in the city and the Southeast Queensland region surrounding it. The superb beaches and relaxed lifestyle of the Sunshine Coast to the north of the city and the Gold Coast to the south, draw visitors from across Australia and around the world. And only in Queensland will you find the rainforest reaching down to a coral reef: the Great Barrier Reef - the only living structure that can be seen from space.
