A move to Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, Australia’s sunshine state puts you in proximity of a population of around two million people and a sub-tropical climate that is attracting a large numbers of migrants. This climate makes for a relaxed outdoor lifestyle in a beautiful, spacious city built on the banks of the Brisbane river. Although the beaches in the direct vicinity of Brisbane are mud flats, beautiful white beaches can be found a short drive to the North at the Sunshine Coast and to the South at the Gold Coast.
The climate is very sunny, with around 2,800 hours of sunshine annually which is one of the major draws for moving to Brisbane.
Summer is the wet season (Dec to Feb). This is when there can be some large thunderstorms with torrential rain so it is important to have the right clothing to cope with this. These months are when it feels sticky due to the humidity. Most buildings have air conditioning to help you cope with this. People tend to gravitate towards the coast in this season to catch the cool breezes and explore the coral sea.
Like most Australian cities, the majority of people live in detached houses with gardens. This means the city sprawls over a large area.
Despite having two million inhabitants, when relocating to Brisbane you will notice it is quieter than the larger cities of Sydney and Melbourne. Unlike Australia’s other big cities, Brisbane is not situated on the coast. The famous Gold Coast with it's multiple theme parks and the idyllic Sunshine Coast are about 1 hour away from the city.
