As the capital of Australia’s Sunshine State, Brisbane is an exciting city to study in. Whether it’s hiking up Mt Coot-tha, enjoying a beverage at a bar by the river or taking a dip in the man-made beach at South Bank, there are plenty of ways to spend your free time outside of university.
For future QUT students, finding suitable student accommodation should be a top priority to check off.
