About Brisbane

The city is built around the twists and turns of the river which, along with the acres of parkland, give Brisbane an open, green feel. As you would expect from the capital of Australia’s ‘Sunshine State’, temperatures rarely dip below double figures and there is an average of 8-9 hours of sunshine per day. Since hosting the 1982 Commonwealth Games, Brisbane has emerged from the shadow of her southern sisters and seen staggering growth both in economy and population.Brisbane is now the driving force behind the booming Queensland economy and there are strong job opportunities in sectors such as engineering, IT and finance. Brisbane is a thriving city that offers great prospects and excellent quality of life to anyone moving down under. If you’re keen to take the jump and move on down under then get in touch with our team and we can assure you our International removal service can make your move far easier.

Upper Kedron

To the north west of Brisbane, Kedron is a great choice for families with excellent schools and plenty of pretty parks. The green streets lined with traditional ‘Queenslander’ style houses are safe, affordable and friendly.

Mount Gravatt

The southern suburb of Mount Gravatt offers quiet suburbia within a stone’s throw of both the bustling city and beautifully rugged countryside. It also boasts a great choice of restaurants and shops.
