Visit Brisbane

Positive and forward-thinking, generous and optimistic; Brisbane is Australia's new global city. Located on the east coast of Australia in the heart of one of the country's fastest-growing regions, Brisbane is the capital of Queensland - a state well known for its natural beauty and world-class tourism attractions. Brisbane is a compact city with many walkways, paths and bikeways, which are well connected with bridges linking the major precincts.

EAT AND DRINK

Food and drink is something we take seriously in Brisbane – whether it’s a steak at a pub, a good coffee or a five-star degustation.  Our pleasant outdoor climate and abundance of fresh produce mean we often eat al fresco-style, and our menus feature delicious locally sourced ingredients. From Moreton Bay prawns to greens from the Lockyer Valley, you’ll discover Queensland’s largest collection of Good Food Guide-awarded restaurants, cafes and bars in the region.
