Brisbane is an amazing city that rests right on the east coast of Australia, and it is up the coast from its bigger neighbors in Sydney and Canberra. A drive down the coast will take you to Sydney or Canberra, and you can enjoy all that Brisbane has to offer when you pay a visit. I love three things in particular about the city, and I keep going back because of these three things alone.
It Is Still Growing
The city is still growing, and it is providing ways for people to enjoy the things that it has to offer every day. They are considering a bid for the Olympics, and that is enough to make me want to come back more often so that I can say I remember the city when it was not an Olympic host. It is always growing with more job, and it is a place where you can build a life if you want to move there. It is not oversaturated with people or industry.
Beautiful Rural Areas
The rural areas outside Brisbane are some of the most beautiful in the world, and you can get into the city easily. It is a great way for people to enjoy the city because they can live outside it while still enjoying. You can drive into the city or take the tram, and you need to make sure that you try out all these different areas as much as you possibly can. You will be able to appreciate both the city and the country because of the outstanding views.
The Beach/Golf Community
Australia has a lot of beaches, and Brisbane is in Queensland which is known for sharks. The thing that I actually like the most about the area is that they take Greg Norman so seriously. He is one of the greatest golfers of all time, and there is a great beach and golf community in the area that you can take advantage of. You can play on a lot of courses, and Greg still lives in the area. You might not meet him, but you never know. It is like a mecca for people who love golf.
I love Brisbane because it has so much diversity. It is a great city to go when you want to be in a place that is growing, there are also the rural areas and the golfing. It is a great combination.
