One of the oldest cities in Australia, Brisbane was founded upon the ancient homelands of the indigenous Turrbal and Jagera peoples. Named after the Brisbane River on which it is located – which in turn was named after Scotsman Sir Thomas Brisbane, the Governor of New South Wales from 1821 to 1825.

The Brisbane central business district stands on the original European settlement and is situated inside a bend of the Brisbane River, about 15 kilometres from its mouth at Moreton Bay.

Today, Brisbane is well known for its distinct Queenslander architecture which forms much of the city's built heritage. The city is a popular tourist destination, serving as a gateway to the state of Queensland, particularly to the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.

Brisbane’s food culture is strongly represented throughout the city. There are many attractions within the city including a walk on top of The Story Bridge, rock climbing by the river or simply enjoying the sights from one of the many City Cat ferries that run regularly up and down the Brisbane River.
There is also a manmade beach and large pool area to enjoy down in the popular Southbank precinct.
