Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and third most populous city in Australia. It is located beside the Brisbane River, 15 kilometres from the mouth of Moreton Bay.
Town planners have been able to learn from the mistakes of other thriving cities and adapt the infrastructure of the city accordingly. As a result, transport has been set up so that it’s easy to get anywhere in Brisbane with ease via the extensive public transport network of buses and trains.
Brisbane's population growth placed strains on South East Queensland's transport system. The State Government and Brisbane City Council have responded with infrastructure plans and increased funding for transportation projects, such as the South East Queensland Infrastructure Plan and Program. Most of the focus has been placed on expanding current road infrastructure, particularly tunnels and bypasses, as well as improving the public transport system.
Brisbane is well-known for its brilliant climate: typically there is warm weather all year round. This is a major contributing factor to Brisbane’s relaxed atmosphere and outdoors lifestyle. Furthermore, just 45 minutes in the car and you can find yourself on the Gold Coast or the Sunshine Coast, where the stunning beaches are known to be some of the most beautiful in the world. Aside from the laidback lifestyle, there is plenty of culture to soak up in Brisbane. Queensland Cultural Centre on South Bank will likely satisfy every type of cultural craving, from galleries to theatres to art installations.
The capital of Queensland, Brisbane is a fast-growing city for employment with a range of job opportunities in industries such as finance, accounting, technology and engineering.
There are many notable companies such as Suncorp Group, Bank of Queensland, Flight Centre and Tatts Group that have decided to make their headquarters in the city.
Brisbane has seen a business boom since the late 1980s and Brisbane’s job market now accounts for 47% of Queensland’s total jobs growth. Brisbane’s consistently good economic performance is expected to grow year on year and one possible reason why Brisbane is a popular city for migration for both professionals and young families alike, who are drawn to the flourishing job market and housing that is considerably cheaper than other state capitals.
