Brisbane is the capital of Queensland State. The city is not so big comparing to Melbourne and Sydney, the population is around 2,3 million people. If you came to Brisbane looking for beaches, you need to know that Brisbane doesn’t has beaches, the city just has an artificial beach located in South Bank.
By the way this region is full of bars and nice places to eat. If Brisbane doesn’t have beaches, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast have a lot, and stays just one hour from Brisbane. The weather in Brisbane is subtropical, that means that is not very cold in the winter time. The summer is hot, but there is a big river crossing the city, Brisbane River, that keeps the temperature good. One thing that you need to know about the Brisbane River is that he is a shark habitat and you can’t swing in it.
