Housing

Brisbane offers a range of housing options spanning all styles from the iconic ‘Queenslander’ with its high ceilings and breezy verandahs to the modern, loft-style apartment. Most Brisbane houses sit on their own block of land but the housing boom of the early 2000s saw a flurry of development activity in Brisbane’s central business district. Dozens of apartment buildings were built, and many continue to be built on the back of the boom.

For those in the rental market, Brisbane offers a wide variety of rental options. Houses, townhouses (semi-detached houses), apartments and share accommodation have become increasingly popular and are readily available throughout the city.
