WHAT’S ON IN BRISBANE?
Although Brisbane is a city of over a million people, it hasn’t lost its reputation for friendliness, cleanliness or liveliness. It is considered a friendly, casual, laid-back city, where people are generally smiling, happy and helpful.
The weather in Brisbane lends itself very much to outdoor activities, with warm to hot summers and mild winters catering for almost every possible activity except snow sports (apart from one indoor ice skating rink!).
Being a sub-tropical climate Brisbane is a year-round holiday and visitors can choose the time of year to visit to coincide with the types of activities they would like to experience.
