Host City – Brisbane
Brisbane is a vibrant, friendly, lifestyle city – home to leading medical research and a thriving industry hub, in the heart of Australia’s premier tourist region and close to some of the world’s greatest natural attractions. With an all year round idyllic climate, Brisbane is a dynamic cosmopolitan city with a relaxed, welcoming alfresco lifestyle. Bike paths and riverside walkways make walking and cycling around downtown a scenic delight. Alive with lush parks, tropical gardens and with its own inner-city beach at South Bank, downtown Brisbane offers the perfect refuge for locals and visitors alike.
A good way to get your bearings when you first arrive is to explore the city by foot, by river cruise, or by a speedy ferry. Take in the sights and discover why the river is so central to Brisbane life. Animal lovers can see Australian wildlife up close at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary or Alma Park Zoo.

Brisbane is the perfect urban hub for easy day-trip explorations of beaches on the Gold Coast (south) and Sunshine Coast (north). You can explore World Heritage listed rainforests, waterfalls and mountain retreats – all within an hour’s drive of the city.
