I absolutely love Brisbane. I 've been to many countries over 4 continents and have visited all the major big cities and the smaller cities. Brisbane is by far the best balanced out city in terms of wages, employment and affordability (if you don't eat out too often)People are genuinely friendly and I thrive in all aspects of my life here. The biking paths, the walkways, leafy green CBD and suburbs, wonderful weather year round make me proud to call Brisbane Home.

Great city, really vibrant and evolving as a major city in the Asia/Pacific region. I moved here from Melbourne 5 years ago and would never return.

Brisbane is AWESOME! The quality of life is amazing, particularly if you like outdoor living. The amount of green space in and around the city is better than any other major city I've lived in. For instance, there are huge free swimming pools along the river (google South Bank). In summer there are free bands playing down there and you are allowed to bring your own alcohol to the designated area. There are many free community activities going on a lot- festivals, fireworks, sporting events etc. I moved here 3 years ago with children. For families it is particularly good. The inner city suburbs can be pricey for accommodation, but more reasonable than Melbourne and Sydney. In fact its cheaper than Auckland (where we came from) by a long way. My biggest issue when I arrived in terms of quality of life was finding a decent coffee! But you'll get to know where to go eventually- because good coffee is about the only thing you cant rely on!
