Brisbane / Meaanjin
As Queensland’s capital city, Brisbane is best known for its idyllic sub-tropical climate and unrivalled natural landscape, including heritage listed rainforests and the pristine Moreton Bay. Brisbane has a well-established cultural scene for those who want to experience the unexpected. New restaurants, art galleries, microbreweries, fashion precincts, pop-up eateries, music venues, rooftop bars and incredible events collide, all connected by a creative culture that continues to deliver unique experiences every visit. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, Brisbane’s climate and cultural scene lends itself to a thriving open-air lifestyle which has seen it become Australia’s fastest-growing capital city. Rapidly evolving infrastructure and state-of-the-art facilities have made Brisbane a choice destination for major sporting events now and in the future. In recent years, the city has been host to several major events including the ATP Cup and Brisbane International tennis competitions, NRL and AFL Grand Finals, and the 2018 Commonwealth Games. In 2021, Brisbane was elected as the Host City for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games recognising the city as a leading international destination. Brisbane International Airport is just 20 minutes from the CBD and connects to a large network of national and international destinations. For travellers, Brisbane is the gateway to other iconic Australian destinations including the Great Barrier Reef, Whitsundays, Outback Queensland, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast. Brisbane warmly welcomes athletes and spectators of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup to enjoy and explore this beautiful part of Australia.
