THE TOWN:

Brisbane is the capital and most populous city in the , Australian state of Queensland and the third most populous city in Australia with its over 2.3 million population. Brisbane is well known for its distinct Queenslander architecture which forms much of the city’s built heritage. It’s a popular tourist destination, serving as a gateway for visitors to the state of Queensland, particularly to the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, popular resort towns immediately south and north of Brisbane, respectively. Lonely Planet writes on this town: “Brisbane’s charms are evident: the arts, the cafes, the bars, the weather, the old Queenslander houses, the go-get-’em attitude. But perhaps it’s the Brisbane River itself – which broke so many hearts when it flooded in 2011 and 2013 – that gives the city its edge. The river’s organic convolutions carve the city into a patchwork of urban villages, each with a distinct style and topography: bohemian, low-lying West End; hip, hilltop Paddington; exclusive, peninsular New Farm; prim, pointy Kangaroo Point. Move from village to village and experience Queensland’s diverse, eccentric, happening capital.”
