Climate and Location

River Quay


Brisbane had 283 days of full sunshine in 2013 and winter days rarely dip below 20°C. Delegates visiting Brisbane can capitalise on the city’s balmy weather and close proximity to world-famous beaches, awe-inspiring natural rainforests and reefs.


Brisbane is the closest east coast Australian capital city to Asia and an ideal conference destination for planners wishing to maximise opportunities arising from Asia’s tiger economies. These include increased delegate attendance, sponsorship and exhibition support.

With the Brisbane River serving as a centre point, delegates can enjoy Brisbane’s many green spaces including the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens, Roma Street Parkland and South Bank Parklands, which includes a man-made beach across the river from Brisbane’s Central Business District (CBD).

Delegates can easily access activities like whale-watching and dolphin-feeding on Moreton Bay, with the lush rainforests of the Scenic Rim and the beaches of the Gold and Sunshine Coasts all within a 90-minute drive of the city centre.
