Brisbane

 

Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and the third largest city in Australia. It had its beginnings as a penal colony which was established in 1825 when it was moved from Redcliffe some 28kms north. From 1842 free settlers were allowed in the area and the colony prospered and grew and was chosen as the capital in 1859. Brisbane is situated on the banks of the Brisbane River between Moreton Bay and the Great Dividing Range.
