Introduction

Brisbane is Australia's new world city. The Queensland capital is a combination of old sandstone public buildings, modern skyscrapers, designer boutiques and relaxed outdoor cafes and pubs. Brisbane's manageable size and proximity to the Gold and Sunshine Coasts make it an ideal starting base for exploring the best that Queensland has to offer.

The inner city suburbs of Fortitude Valley, The West End, Paddington and New Farm are the focus of Brisbane's café, restaurant and bar scene, while the city itself is the place for designer label shopping, the best hotels and the city's Botanical and Roma Street Gardens.

Brisbane's popular Southbank Parklands and urban ‘beach' offer a relaxing change of pace and are where you will find Brisbane's cultural precinct, major theatres and museums.

The Brisbane River shapes much of the city's landscape and lifestyle and 25km from the city centre flows into must-see Moreton Bay. The gentle waters of the bay are home to some of the world's largest sand islands, such as Moreton, North Stradbroke and Bribie, as well as charming seaside villages, rugged national parks and also one of Australia's most famous seafood catches - the Moreton Bay Bug.
