No longer the poor cousin of Sydney and Melbourne, Brissie has been enjoying an enviable status of a world-class cosmopolitan city with a unque laidback feel. This comfortable mixture and a promise of a perfect lifestyle makes this Australia's third-largest city a dream destination to move into and settle for a number of Aussies. If you add to it the year-round warm climate, scenic scenery of the gently snaking Brisbane River and amiable locals, you end up with a pack of drawing cards hard not to succumb to. So when you do, head for the South Bank Parklands, an area transformed into a tropical paradise with beaches, lagoons and lush gardens. Then feed your inner art buff with world class exhibitions at Australia's largest Gallery of Modern Art only to go partying wild in Brisbane's nightlife mecca, the Valley, afterwards. And don't miss out the natural beauty of Moreton Bay with stunning coastal vistas.
