Perhaps Australia’s most up-and-coming city, Brisbane has seen continued fast growth over recent years yet still manages to provide one of the best balances of urbanisation versus nature of any Aussie capital. With an excellent central area dissected by a lovely river, easy access to some wonderful coastal spots, and possibly the best overall weather of any of the Australian capitals, Brisbane has a lot to offer both visitors and residents alike.
Brisbane‘s Southbank precinct, in particular, is a beacon of all-things-right with city development, featuring spacious grassed areas intermingled with chic art galleries and a variety of museums that make getting a dose of culture a pleasant undertaking. Located alongside the Brisbane River, the area is host to not only an enjoyable waterfront aspect, but an easy walk away from the restaurant and dining hubs of Brisbane proper.
In addition, the city is very lively and offers a range of activities for those who prefer to get more physically involved; its bridge climb offers an adventure with great views of the city, and its proximity to nearby Moreton Island and Tangalooma means there are numerous cruises and island adventures available where you can do everything from going whale watching to feeding dolphins, all within an extremely convenient ride from the city.
