While Brisbane is Australia’s third largest city, and the capital of Queensland, it still maintains an inviting, relaxed lifestyle, no doubt aided by the subtropical climate, meandering Brisbane River, relaxed café culture and friendly locals. It’s no shrinking violet though, with world class art galleries, great live music and a popular outdoor dining scene, Brisbane is the second-fastest growing urban center in the western world and is now being considered one of Australia’s “hippest cities”. The city’s universities are well-known for a range of academic programs which rank as some of the best in the country, particularly for education, communications and media.  Those looking for professional experience can choose a local internship program. There’s never been a better time to live in Brisbane and students will surely appreciate not only the level of education, but quality of life, they receive here.
