About Brisbane

A city located on the eastern coast of Australia and the capital of the Queensland state, Brisbane is the country's third largest city. It is located at the mouth of the Brisbane River as it empties into the Gulf of Moreton. The river, which divides the modern city into two, was bridged in the 1930s. Like other major settlements in Australia, it was first established as a penal colony in the 20th century.

After its founding in the 1840s, Brisbane grew rapidly in economic importance to become a major commercial center of Australia today. It is a city of skyscrapers, beautiful natural parks, historical architecture, and unique mansions and grand houses left over from the colonial era. The area's Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast are two beaches that draw many people interested in water sports. The world's largest koala park, Lone Pine, Brisbane Forest Park, City Botanic Gardens, and the city's tropical fauna all make it unique and worth visiting.

In addition, the city also has many museums and cultural points of interest, including St. Stephan's Cathedral and the Queensland Cultural Center. Brisbane Airport is located 14 km east of the city center.
