Living in Brisbane

Brisbane has recorded the highest percentage rate of population growth of all Australian capital cities every year since 1990. If infrastructure, employment and housing hadn't kept up, the consistent influx of people would spell disaster for a city, but in Brisbane, everything is now either blooming or booming. Brisbane's unique architecture, riverfront setting, perfect climate, cultural diversity and unrivalled employment growth make it one of the most attractive cities to live in on almost any angle. As Bernard Salt writes in The Australian newspaper "Brisbane looks downright sexy".

Bernard Salt's excellent overview of how and why Brisbane is booming is a must-read if you're considering moving to, or investing in the city and the links below offer comprehensive information on local infrastructure and livability.
