The ideal weekend city break.

Brisbane might not be the first destination you think of when considering a holiday to Queensland, but the state’s capital is more than just a busy city.

Amidst the city highrises, this underrated Australian city has secretly been building itself into a cultural hotspot. Its food, music, arts and sports culture is rich and dynamic, and its nightlife is exciting and edgy, making it ideal for anyone from families to friends.

Nothing is ever too far in Brisbane and with the pace being serenely slower than in Sydney and Melbourne, you can relax, unwind and enjoy it at your ease over a few days.

Got a spare weekend and are wanderlusting? Brisbane has the cure.

      Hi Sandhu,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      Torrens University is a private university in Australia. It is part of the Laureate International Universities network with campus in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Upon commission, Torrens University became the 40th university in Australia and the first new university for 20 years. You may also check on review pages for that university to learn more about them. Hope this helps!

      Hi Philip,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      Brisbane is a great place to settle in Australia. Because of fast population growth in the last few years, there is a lot of infrastructure growth in Brisbane. Some of the key industries include construction, education, health, finance, retail, hospitality, and transport. Opportunities for careers are currently good and set to increase in the near future. Rental reports reveal Brisbane is one of the most affordable capital cities to rent in the entire country. The median price for units is $390 per week, while houses are around $450. However, if you head to the outer suburbs and you’ll find prices drop considerably. Hope this helps!

    Hi Hemendar, thanks for your inquiry.

    Rent a unit means you are paying to stay in a unit.

    Rent a house means you are paying to stay in a house.
