Brisbane is renowned for its lifestyle – the envy of most world cities. Boasting a subtropical climate and an average of 283 days of sunshine every year, Brisbane is defined by an energised spirit, a youthful vitality, and a vibrant love of the outdoors. This environment is ideal for fostering economic growth and nurturing creativity – our city is fast becoming a hotbed of cutting-edge cultural expression. A strong vision for the future and an easy balance between progress and sustainability deliver an everyday existence that embodies Australia’s status as one of the world’s best countries for quality of life.
Australia's quality of life was ranked first in the Asia Pacific and fourth in the world by the Institute for Management Development's (IMD) in 2013. Australian cities are affordable destinations for international expatriates, and Brisbane’s lower cost of living proves a drawcard for multinational organisations seeking to contain the costs of a mobile workforce in tight economic conditions.
