Built along a winding river, Brisbane’s urban centre offers the convenience and diverse culture of a big city with a hint of small-town charm. While it’s not quite as busy as Sydney or Melbourne, it still has everything you’ll need to enjoy your university years. Between classes, you can bask in the sunshine at the South Bank Parklands, explore the City Botanic Gardens, or grab a bite to eat at one of the international restaurants in Fortitude Valley – home of Brisbane’s Chinatown.
If you feel like hitting the beach on your days off from uni, the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast take around an hour to reach by train.
