I have lived in Brisbane my WHOLE LIFE, never left and never can imagine a life outside of Brisbane. Many servos, hungry jacks and best of all, bin chickens. Since I was a little bugger I have always had the absolute joy of having a pet bin chicken. One day, I believe I will evolve into my true form, the bin chicken. To be at one with the bin juice drinking angels is my life goals. I love Brisbane so much that I plan on making Brisbane even better, by opening my own bin juice cafe. I love Brisbane, I am Mad Dog - peace out bin chickens

Brisbane is ok, with comparison to the many countries that I have had the pleasure of visiting. The amount of uncivilized 'bogans' really makes me feel unwelcome; which is a real shame since it is such a beautiful place. I have had the displeasure of verbally engaging with one of these people, he went by the name, 'Mad Dog.' The ratio of bin chickens to people is revolting, more bin birds than people.

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!
