Brisbane is the capital city of the state of Queensland, and is located on the east coast of Australia. Queensland is known for its warm weather, with an average of 8 hours of bright sunshine per day. It is home to 5 of Australia’s World Heritage sites, including the Great Barrier Reef and Fraser Island. There is undoubtedly a lot to explore on Australia’s east coast.
The city continues to climb in popularity with international students, with the Study Brisbane program offering a wealth of resources to make the transition to Australian life smoother. Brisbane’s commitment to students is evident at the annual City Welcome Festival that attracts thousands of students with live music, food stalls, student exhibitions, cultural activities and a Student Friendship Ceremony. With a lower cost of living than Sydney and Melbourne, and three international airports (Brisbane, Cairns and Gold Coast), there are many reasons to consider this study destination.
