It might not be as big as its fellow capital cities down south, but quiet, achieving Brisbane still stands tall as a city to rival the others. With sunny weather to beat Sydney's and a burgeoning culinary scene that's snapping at the toes of Melbourne, the secrets of Queensland's capital are slowly spreading and those keen to experience it for themselves are coming in droves. Families are well catered for with animal attractions, playgrounds and a man-made beach, while Brisbane's cultural attractions, shopping and dining options will keep even the most discerning travellers interested and dreaming of a sea–change to the Sunshine State's main city.

When to Go to Brisbane
Like the rest of Australia, Brisbane experiences summer in December to February and winter in June to August. Winter however, has a different meaning in Brisbane, with crisp blue sky days and temperatures averaging around 11-25°C. In summer, days can be quite humid with temperatures averaging around 21-30°C. With this very mild weather, there’s never really a bad time to go to Brisbane. If you’re looking to experience the city at its best, opt to visit in September during the Brisbane Festival to take in a number of fun events and shows. At the end of the month the festival finishes with a spectacular fireworks display.
