Rough Guides named Brisbane the 8th Most Beautiful City in the World because of its modern architecture and the Brisbane River that snakes through the middle of the city.
Brisbane has more sunny days per year than any other Australian capital city, with an average of 283 sunny days per year. This includes temperatures that rarely dip below 20 degrees Celsius (or 68° Fahrenheit) even in the winter.Brisbane was named Australia’s Hippest City by Lonely Planet and is the fastest growing capital city in Australia.
That’s because this city is a perfect mix between professional, educational, and fun. The city mixes indoor art galleries and museums with outdoor parks to capitalise on all the sunshine. Plus, it’s only an hour’s drive from two of the most famous beaches in the world: the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.
