Brisbane is the capital of the state of Queensland and the only sub-tropic city in Australia. It is the third largest city in the country and is flanked by two popular coasts, Sunshine Coast to the north and the Gold Coast to the south. With moderate winter, Brisbane enjoys sunshine all year round. This is evidenced by the numbers of lush parks and gardens all over the city and its surroundings, where recreational activities like swimming, surfing, rowing and picnics can take place. Over at Southbank, there is lovely parklands with a man-made beach and lagoon, surrounded by restaurants, art galleries, museum, cinemas and a performing arts centre. Greater Brisbane reveals world-class sports arenas and football stadiums, hospitals and universities. Adventure theme parks are only a short drive away from Brisbane and so are many other activities to keep the whole family entertained.
