Book flights to Brisbane

Brisbane is the capital of Queensland, Australia's sunshine state. It's a big city with a population of over 2 million people, but it has a laid-back and relaxed atmosphere. The city is built around the Brisbane River, which winds its way through the centre. There's a beautiful walking and biking path along the river, and you can also take a ferry to explore the different neighbourhoods. Brisbane has a subtropical climate, so you can expect warm weather year-round. There are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy, like hiking in the nearby mountains or swimming in the Moreton Bay Marine Park. The city also has a thriving arts and culture scene, with world-class museums and galleries. For something a little different, you can visit Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the world's oldest and largest koala sanctuary.
