Brisbane, capital of Australia’s ‘Sunshine State’ Queensland and river city gateway to a vibrant destination of broad tree-lined streets enriched by parks and palms; the complement of sandstone heritage and glass skyscraper skyline harmonious in their riverfront views. Colourful and cosmopolitan at the top end of this relaxed yet international city, Sofitel Brisbane Central is a renowned landmark.

From the one kilometre retail stretch of the Brisbane Queen Street Mall to the eclectic designers of Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley; the delight of acclaimed riverside dining and weekend craft markets to world-leading exhibitions at Australia’s largest modern art museum, the Gallery of Modern Art; the dynamic South Bank Parklands, home to the Queensland Cultural Centre and the venues of the Performing Arts Centre to the marine sanctuaries and aquatic playgrounds of beautiful Moreton Bay and its islands on the city’s doorstep – Brisbane is a city easily explored.

At sophisticated restaurants and favourite bars, watching the city lights from atop the Story Bridge or Mt Coot-tha lookout, abseiling the cliffs of Kangaroo Point or visiting the world’s largest Koala sanctuary at Lone Pine, Brisbane sets a desirable pace be it day or night.

We hope to see you at the 2017 Safe Cities Conference.
