Host for the 2032 Olympic Games, Brisbane is one of the fastest-growing capital cities in Australia in terms of population and employment. Brisbane residents are young and skilled, highly educated and culturally diverse. With 12 months of sunshine filled days and clear blue skies, Brisbane has a climate that sets the scene for year-round alfresco activities. Even in the midst of a Brisbane winter you’ll be yearning to play in the parks and dine outdoors. As the most biologically-diverse capital in Australia, Brisbane is a green city with clean, healthy air and a clear commitment to its environment. The Brisbane City Council achieved carbon neutral status for its operations in 2017. Brisbane’s public transport system is a clean and green network of trains, ferries (CityCats) and buses that have been integrated so commuters can travel seamlessly between each service when using a go card. Brisbane's nightlife is extensive, spread across both sides of the River, and packed with variety and options. https://www.visitbrisbane.com.au/
