Brisbane is a vibrant, pedestrian friendly city that sits on the river after which it was named. It enjoys a humid subtropical climate and is the third largest city in Australia. It is also the gateway to Queensland- famous for its tropical rainforests and beautiful beaches and home to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven wonders of the natural world and the only living thing on earth visible from space. With a warm year round climate and friendly laid back vibe, it is easy to understand why it has had the largest population growth of any Australian city over the last few years.
