Brisbane City

Famous for its great weather, exciting events and cultural scene, Brisbane has a sophisticated, warm and friendly charm, which will more than surprise. As Queensland's vibrant capital city, Brisbane offers the very best in food, wine, arts, entertainment and major sporting events with relaxed sub-tropical flair.

Brisbane is the centre of a region rich in world-class beach, river, rainforest and mountain experiences.

As Queensland's capital, Brisbane has its very own savvy downtown precinct, which serves as a destination in its own right or as the perfect hub for exploring spectacular Moreton Bay, beaches, or many regional hinterland attractions located inside a leisurely 60 minute drive. Brisbane's active yet relaxed way of life fits perfectly with the plethora of things to see and do in and around the city.

Whether your passion is for our great outdoors like beaches and parklands, tempting menus, happening nightlife, savvy shopping, pursuits of the cultural kind or all of the above, you'll find it all downtown.

There's simply no better place in Queensland to indulge in some serious retail therapy. Start in the Queen Street Mall - almost a kilometre of shoppers' paradise. Then stroll along to the City's chic shopping strips and arcades before heading to The Valley where you'll find the edgiest young designs around. South Bank's new Arbour on Grey should be next on your shopping list. Downtown's outdoor markets are a weekend pleasure not to be missed.

This is my 8th year as a diver. My patch of underwater heaven is in Beautiful Moreton Bay and surrounding waters, including Curtin Artifical Reef, Flinders reef (Moreton Bay Marine Park), Hutchinson Shoal, Henderson's Reef, Megs Reef (Gotham City) and other amazing sites, too many to name.
