Why Brisbane?

Brisbane is the third largest city in Australia by population and is seeing continued development and gentrification making it into a genuine “world city” and popular tourist destination. It has the perfect climate for the plentiful outdoor attractions and lifestyle options while offering strong employment for Queensland’s South-East corner.

History

Brisbane was originally inhabited by the Yuggera and Turrbal Aboriginal tribes before Matthew Flinders discovered and explored Moreton Bay in 1799. It was then developed as a penal colony for British convicts who committed secondary crimes in Sydney and were sent north to Brisbane.

Brisbane and the Brisbane River were named after Sit Thomas Brisbane who was a British soldier and colony administrator who was born in Scotland. The first colony was established in 1824 and then became a free settlement in 1838 continuing to develop as a town by 1859 and then a metropolitan area by 1924. In WWII Brisbane played a prominent part in the defence of Australia due to its proximity to the South West Pacific Area.

Climate

Brisbane is known for being “sunny one day, perfect the next” and this is true almost the entire year round. Warm summers with days averaging around 30 degrees, are perfect for swimming and water sports, and the reasonably warm winters are perfect for outdoor sports and riverfront dining.
