About Brisbane - Aboriginal name: Meanjin (pronounced Mee-AN-jin)

With its famous outdoor lifestyle and friendly, unpretentious vibe, Brisbane is the quintessential Queensland city: a place so refreshingly laidback it flips the traditional city experience on its head. World-class cultural precincts and award-winning dining experiences combine with buzzing after-dark and music scenes, breathtaking island
escapes, stunning national parks and paddock-to-plate experiences, making Brisbane a true all-rounder.

Vibrant, relaxed, urban outdoor lifestyle – Kick back and enjoy Brisbane’s famous outdoor lifestyle, made possible by 300-plus days of sunshine per year. Pack a picnic for a long lazy lunch by the river, enjoy breakfast and good coffee at one of the region’s thriving cultural precincts, sip sunset cocktails at a rooftop bar or dine al fresco under a blanket of stars.

Get up close and personal with the native wildlife at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

 

The sanctuary has been working with koalas for more than 90 years, and their commitment to advancing research in the field of koala study and other wildlife species remains unwavering.

Get back to nature on Moreton Island. Hand-feed wild dolphins, toboggan down giant sand dunes and kayak around the famous Tangalooma wrecks while keeping your eyes peeled for whales and dugongs.

Or just simply satisfy your wanderlust and explore the lush, green hinterland and charming rural towns west and south of the city. It’s all here, just waiting for you!
