Brisbane, Queensland

Brissie is a capital that enjoys its location. Directly above the rockin Gold Coast, and below the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, the city is a popular host for in-transit tourists, both foreign and Australian. However, those who visit the city for more than a few days can come to appreciate Brisbane’s wide range of activities and laid back pace. Unlike Sydney, downtown Brisbane is not located directly on open water, instead offering expensive river-front views.
