Brisbane, Australia's new world city

It’s a positive attitude and creative confidence that makes Brisbane a genuine new-world city. A forward city with one of the youngest populations of any major city in the world Brisbane is inventing its future with a sense of optimism as an emerging global city. We are clean, green, sustainable, friendly, tolerant, multi-cultural, creative, collaborative, energetic, progressive and liveable. Welcome to the new destination site dedicated to the Greater Brisbane Region, feel free to find your favourite spot within Brisbane.

And, even though Brisbane is rapidly developing and forward thinking, we still like to do things a little differently, maintaining a youthful enthusiasm that allows innovative ideas, from the playful (a beach in the middle of the city) to the contemporary (a magnificent creative arts precinct) to flourish.

From Australia’s premier live music scene in The Valley to exclusive world-class exhibitions at Australia’s largest Gallery of Modern Art and the natural splendour of Moreton Bay and the Scenic Rim, we have plenty of time to relax and enjoy a lifestyle that the world envies.

Take a day trip through our beautiful heritage-listed fringes or indulge in some shopping and dining in our friendly and diverse urban villages… there’s a memorable Brisbane experience for everyone.

Our river hugs the city and the cultural precincts; leafy parks, cycling and walking tracks line its banks and connect to the vivacious South Bank Arts & Leisure precinct. Here, beauty is essential and Brisbane values the aesthete and gives its musicians, artists and dreamers a space to be and encouragement to grow.

Welcome to a city where you are free to be whoever you want to be, where you can be inspired to pursue your dreams and to find success and joy in every aspect of your life. Welcome to Brisbane, Australia’s new world city.
