Queensland is a big place. To put that in perspective, it’s four times the size of Japan, nearly six times the size of the UK and more than twice the size of Texas. It actually takes up 25% of the land mass of Australia.
Every year, millions of local and international visitors flock here to soak up its stunning attractions. Adjectives don’t do it justice. Few places offer as much…from a brilliant climate and magical scenery, to tropical islands and rain forest greenery. Queensland has everything, including the grandest attraction of all -The Great Barrier Reef. But what about Brisbane? It’s well worth a closer look.
Let’s hear it for Brisbane.
“Beautiful one day. Perfect the next.” Ask any Aussie and they’ll know this justifiably famous tourism slogan. It put Queensland on the map as Australia’s most popular holiday destination. Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland. Once considered a sleepy backwater for retirees, over the past few years it has undergone a sort of extreme makeover. From fuddy duddy to fabulous. A vibrant metropolis, filled with culture and charm, where 300 sunny days a year and a year-round temperate climate are a way of life. It’s no wonder that Queenslanders are so laid back. They’re on a permanent vacation!
