After being stuck in your home country for more than two years during the pandemic, like so many of us, you might be considering a change of scenery and are looking to head to greener pastures. A move to Brisbane might be the perfect fit for your family!
With Australian borders finally being open to nationals and tourists alike, Queensland has become a favorite destination for the whole world again, specifically Brisbane.
Brisbane is the capital of Queensland, and with over 2 million citizens, the most populated city of Australia’s sunshine state.
Here are some reasons why you should consider a move to Brisbane:
Located between the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, this place is basically the perfect spot for city-dwellers that like to escape the hustle and bustle with a quick surf, nature enthusiasts that still enjoy public transport facilities, and culture nerds alike.
The City Is Currently Experiencing a Development Boom
This city has been experiencing the highest national migration rates and is therefore investing highly in its infrastructure and cultural development.
To try to accommodate and provide lots of livable spaces for its residents, Brisbane is, for instance, currently working on the Queen’s Wharf Casino Development right on the Brisbane Riverbank, which is aimed at enriching the city’s shopping and nightlife experience.
As the boom in residents wouldn’t already be enough – it has also been announced that Brisbane will be hosting the Olympic Games in 2032, which is definitely a huge economic driver for the city to up its game and show the world what it has to offer.
So better to settle in now before everybody else wants to move here as well!
Excellent Education Facilities
If you like it in Brisbane, chances are high you might want to settle down and start a family here as well.
With the majority of its almost 600 schools being public schools, you can rest assured that your kids will receive some of the best and most affordable education around.
When it comes to secondary education, the Queensland University of Technology, University of Queensland as well as Griffith University are all located in Brisbane and rank among the best in the world.
Thanks to its extensive migration history and welcoming people from all over the world every year, Australia is a very multicultural country, and Brisbane is surely no exemption from this rule.
Having such a vast multicultural background makes for an incredible food scene, so be sure to always be able to taste different flavours on every corner!
If you’re not a foodie – Brisbane is constantly trying to entertain its residents that come from all different walks of life. Therefore you can be sure that there is something to do for everyone in and around the city.
Scenic Natural Surroundings
Located right next to the scenic Brisbane River, being a city next to the water makes Brisbane green and full of wonderful parks to enjoy the wonderful summer and incredibly mild winter days (June and July are the coldest months and still average around 22 degrees celsius!) alike.
If you are an avid surfer, some of the best beaches in Australia are located right at Brisbane’s doorstep.
In general, all life in Brisbane can be planned around being outdoors, no matter your hobby. But you can be sure that watersports are definitely at the centre of most of the things you will get up to in your pastime there.
Low Housing Prices
Last but not least, if the above points have made you eager to move – Brisbane is currently experiencing incredibly low housing and development rates!
Brisbane is not just the most affordable Australian capital to live in, its housing prices are half that of Sydney or Melbourne, which have seen living and housing prices climb through the roof in recent years.
From beautiful nature to a bustling metropolis, Brisbane has got plenty to offer and a lot going for it. This is not just a multicultural city that provides world-class surf in the most scenic nature, but is also a future host of the Olympic Games!
