W ave to my Second home!

Better known as ‘Brissy’ to everyone that resides here, Brisbane is the capital of Queensland as well as the third most populous city in Australia. Its metropolitan region extends along the Brisbane River, one of Brisbane’s most iconic landmarks. Similar to the districts in Malaysia, there are many geographical subdivisions in Brisbane, which are called ‘suburbs’. Among these are St. Lucia (where the University of Queensland is located), Toowong, Indooroopilly, West End and many more.

QUEENSLANDER

Q ueenslander is ambiguous- it

may refer to a person from Queensland or, in this case, the characteristic architecture style of Queensland.

It primarily used for residence, distinguishing Brisbane's suburbs from other capital cities.

A Queenslander is constructed using timber, usually with vertical 'stumps' that make the main living spaces off the ground.

Such architecture style serves to cool the building by means of ventilation and also to protect the building from termites and other pests.

The Wheel of Brisbane

The wheel of Brisbane is a

transportable Ferris wheel erected

at the northern entrance to South

Bank Parklands, which is just across the river from the Brisbane

City. It is about 60 meters tall with 42 air-conditioned capsules which can accommodate up to 6 adults.

Situated along the river are the many metropolitan suburbs of Brisbane, making it strategic to travel from one suburb to another by ferry. There are by far 16 bridges, crossing the Brisbane River, among which the more renowned ones are Story Bridge, Goodwill Bridge and Victoria Bridge.

Story Bridge

The Story Bridge is a heritage listed steel cantilever bridge, which is the longest in Australia. Connecting Fortitude Valley to Kangaroo Point, it allows passage for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians. It is named after John Douglas Story, a prominent public servant in Brisbane.

WHERE TO GO ?

BRISBANE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT (CBD)

C ommonly referred to as ‘The City’, Brisbane’s very own CBD is nothing short of being one of the best shopping destinations is the country. With over 1000 shops, dozens of unique restaurants, a bustling nightlife, and beautiful colourful city lights make it an all-round experience for all to behold. With a dense number of buildings stretching along the river, The City never ceases to amaze with a completely different outlook from each new vantage point. Within it, there are a few parks such as the Roma Street Parklands, the City Botanic Garden and Wickham Park. To complete the metropolitan experience, The City can get a little crowded towards the weekends as well as during festive seasons, with events at King George Square or during RIverfire. With a balanced blend of nature, art, culture, modern buildings, and heritage sites, The City, by itself, has a strong personality that makes it unique.

Being the second most populous city in the state and the sixth most populous city in the country, Gold Coast is a coastal city on the east coast of Australia. Its surfing beaches, canal and waterway systems, theme park, night life , and rain-forest hinterland make it a fascinating attraction for tourists. There are many beaches along the coast, including Surfer Paradise, Mermaid Beach, Rainbow Bay, Main Beach and so on. Besides visiting beaches for the breathtaking view, you will also come across shops and skyscrapers just beside the beaches. A must go place for shopaholics is Harbour Town, the first and largest brand direct outlet shopping centre in Australia.

A 2 hour drive to the North of Gold Coast will lead you to Sunshine Coast, also known as the ‘little brother’ to Gold Coast. It’s an urban area with a more laid back lifestyle that's seemingly appropriate for this beach town. Sunny Coast’s pristine beaches and nature trails are it’s main highlights. A couple of interesting places include Noosa, Coolum, Maroochydore, Mooloolaba, and Glasshouse mountain.
