Brisbane


Brisbane is the largest city and capital of Queensland, Australia. The city's estimated population is 958,504, as of 2005, with a total of 1,763,131 living in the metropolitan area (2006 Census).

Brisbane grew a penal colony established in 1824 at Redcliffe, about 17 miles (28 kilometers) to the North of what is today central Brisbane. The name Brisbane was chosen in honor of Sir Thomas Brisbane who was the Governor of New South Wales from 1821 to 1825. Free settlers were permitted from 1842, and Brisbane became the capital of Queensland, when it became a separate colony in 1859.

Product Description:

Everything you need for a successful Australian vacation―in one intelligent guide. The Australian dollar has in recent years plunged in value against the U.S. dollar making Australia far more accessible than it has been in years. To keep up with the changes the new currency situation has brought about, we’ve turned once again to Lee Mylne. Based in Brisbane (the third most populous city in Australia), Mylne has been an Australian travel journalist for nearly all her working life. She has crisscrossed every state and territory of Australia by every means of transport, and she is a life member and past president of the Australian Society of Travel Writers.

This guide is updated each year, concisely written (so it’s easy to carry) and printed in large, easy-to-read type.



In the guide:


Opinionated reviews of Australia’s best attractions, hotels, restaurants, nightlife venues and shops―everything you need to know, nothing you don’t


Detailed local maps marked with hotels, restaurants, and attractions, plus a map of Sydney’s ferry system


Expert tips and recommendations for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef, Tasmania, and the Red Centre including Uluru


Reviews with exact pricing, so there’s never any guessing, using the Frommer’s star rating system


Suggested itineraries, including for families and for one-week visits


Smart advice on how to scuba dive, avoiding dangerous animals, dodging crowds, renting a car, money-saving packages, and more


A rich section on the history of Australia, including detailed context on Aboriginal issues and tips on cultural sensitivity


A handy pull-out, indexed map of Australia, ideal for in-depth trip planning


About Frommer's: There’s a reason Frommer’s has been the most trusted name in travel for more than 60 years. Arthur Frommer created the best-selling guide series in 1957 to help American servicemen fulfill their dreams of travel in Europe, and since then, we have published thousands of titles, become a household name, and helped millions upon millions of people realize their own dreams of seeing our planet. Travel is easy with Frommer’s.
