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.
