Brisbane City

The CBD is a triangular shaped area bounded by the Brisbane Rive to the east, south and west, and is divided by its Spring Hill neighbour in the north by Wickham Terrace.

Brisbane City is built on one of the original river exploration landing sites, and was settled as a convict colony in 1825. History documents Brisbane’s beginnings as one of the harshest penal settlements to which the worst of the convicts were sent. Today remnants of the early history are dotted amongst the skyscrapers, providing a mixed bag of architecture and backdrop for a vibrant city-life.
