Send a Parcel to Brisbane, Australia
The third largest city in Australia, Brisbane is home to around 2.2 million citizens. Brisbane is located on its original European settlement on the banks of the Brisbane River from which it derives its name. It’s located in the South East of Queensland, and has grown by more than the national average each year since the early 1990’s.
It has played host to numerous large sporting and cultural events including the 1982 Commonwealth Games and the 2001 Goodwill Games.
The city of Brisbane came about with the joining together of around twenty smaller villages and towns in 1925.
The city has had steady growth over the years but was hit in 1974 and 2011 with major floods causing extensive damage citywide.
Weather wise Brisbane has an almost sub-tropic climate with hot humid summers, and dry, warm Winters. Although from November to March the thunderstorms can be severe causing property damage. Indeed in the late 1800’s a record of 18 inches of rain fell on a single day in January!
It's a vibrant city with many people classing it as having the friendliest atmosphere on the East coast of Australia. Indeed each of the urban villages that make up the city do things a little differently, which adds to the charm of the city.
For tourists then the city is easy to transit around with good rail and bus services, and highly recommended are the Cityferry and Citycat waterbus services, which are widely used by tourists and locals alike for getting around.
Notable sights are the Zoo, Koala Sanctuary, Manly Boat Harbour, and Mount Coot-tha, which is Brisbane's tallest mountain.
Not that there is any uphill struggle sending parcels to or from Brisbane although as ever when sending heavy items by land you will need to allow extra time for your parcel to be shipped. Even a fast Air Freight service will take at least 48 hours.
