The "Smart State", Queensland, and in particular its capital city, Brisbane, is a multicultural hub of living and learning. As Australia's fastest growing capital with its safe and friendly environment, Brisbane has become a popular choice for international students.
Geographically located in the southeast corner of the State, Brisbane is the gateway to many tourist destinations. The inner city offers exciting opportunities to lead an indulgent life-style with parklands, museums, art galleries, casino, malls, exclusive boutiques, convention facilities and a host of restaurants, cafe and riverside dining.
Queensland also benefits from a wonderful warm climate, beautiful sandy beaches, luxuriant rainforest and a fantastic outdoor lifestyle. There is a wide variety of activities for students to choose from, or they can just sit back and relax in the "Sunshine State". The city overlooks the Brisbane river, and you can cruise on the "City Cat" ferry from waterfront markets to parks, piers and bars. With living costs among the lowest of any of Australia's State Capitals, you can enjoy all that the city has to offer.
Brisbane is Australia's fastest growing city, but the people in Brisbane still retain a friendly easy-going attitude. Brisbane is within easy reach of the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, as well as attractions such as Australia Zoo, Dream World and Movie World. Regular transport services to destinations such as the Great Barrier Reef are also available.
