The third most populated city in Australia and the biggest city in Queensland, the 2 million inhabitants of Brisbane enjoy an enviable location on the mouth of the Brisbane river with its sub-tropical climate. Over the decades, Brisbane has grown in size and stature to become one of the richest cities in the Southern Hemisphere and boasts the biggest economy of any city stretching from Sydney to Singapore. To underline its reputation, in 2009 Melbourne was rated at number sixteen in the Economist’s most liveable cities in the world.
While private car is still the most popular way of negotiating your way around Brisbane, the city also offers a comprehensive public transport system covered by bus, rail and ferry services. Professional and students are split almost 50:50 and the room shares on offer in Brisbane reflect this. If you are a student (or young professional) looking for a lively urban lifestyle then look to Fortitude Valley, the centre of Brisbane’s party scene or New Farm for its cafes and market . If you are looking for something a little more upmarket with views to match then a share accommodation in Paddington is the answer or perhaps the high rise apartments offered by Auchenflower or South Bank.
