Brisbane

Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, is one of the fastest-growing cities in Australia. It is often voted among the top 10 most liveable cities in the world. It has a population of two million. It is built on the mouth of the Brisbane River that twists and turns through the city. Magnificent beaches, tropical islands, rainforests, coral reefs, vast unpopulated desert areas are all within travelling distance. The climate has a slight tropical feel – warm to hot, with mild winters. Brisbane is close to the famous beaches of the Gold Coast, the rainforest as well as some of the largest themes parks in Australia. Brisbane is a bicycle-friendly city with 30 kilometres of bike routes along the river. Many of our student ride their bikes to school.
