Australia’s third largest city and capital of the state of Queensland, Brisbane served as a penal colony for convicts who committed offences in Australia. But today, it is one of the country’s most beautiful cities. Modern architecture has taken over the city, and it has few legacies left from those early days of colonisation.
The city centre, bounded by the Brisbane River, has various social and cultural entertainment options. A boat ride along the river is a pleasant way to see the beauty of the city.
Brisbane also has a lively night life. Those planning to live, study or travel in the city will have the chance to visit typical Australian pubs.
