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.
In Spring (September - November) the daytime in Brisbane is usually fine and sunny with mild to warm temperatures averaging 14-23°C. Nights and early mornings are generally cool. It's a pleasant time to walk and explore the city and its surrounds, prior to the heat of the Queensland Summer.
If you plan to travel around Brisbane, visit Translink and apply for a go card. They offer cheaper rates than paper tickets and allow for seamless travel on the city's trains, busses and ferries.
