Do you have an illogical fear of wild cats? Most of us would say, “But that’s not illogical.

Brisbane is the bustling, energetic capital of Queensland, and has a beautiful sub tropical climate, a wealth of open, green public spaces and a wonderful laidback attitude to life. The city was built on the site of an old convict colony established in 1823, which later became a free settlement in 1842 and grew into a city from the riches made on the fertile, arable land and abundance of timber in the area. This city was named after the Governor of New South Wales, Sir Thomas Brisbane.

Although Brisbane was mainly thought of as a regional outpost, in more recent years it has grown in international recognition for is vibrant economy and rich tourist trade, and also the Commonwealth Games were held here in 1982, bringing a host of international interest and investment to the city.
