Brisbane, capital of Queensland, is a large, modern city set on the Brisbane River. Clustered in its South Bank cultural precinct are institutions including Queensland Museum and Sciencecentre, with noted interactive exhibitions, and Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, among Australia’s contemporary art museums. Looming over the city is Mt. Coot-tha, site of sprawling Brisbane Botantic Gardens, with panoramic views from its summit.
As a sub tropical city, Brisbane has bright, sunny days and generally experiences reasonably mild weather year round. Average temperatures are between 29C (84F) and 21C (70F) in Summer and 22C (72F) and 10C (50F) in Winter. It can get quite warm in Summer but remains fairly moderate in winter so there is really no “bad time” to visit.
Brisbane is the gateway to Queensland’s range of world-class tourist locations such as the Great Barrier Reef and the Australian Outback.
