Moving to Brisbane – Your Complete Guide

The moving experts at Brisk Transport have been busy moving clients from Melbourne to Brisbane all year long. So, what is so great about Brisbane?  

Brisk has compiled the top 6 reasons why Brisbane is the place to be. 

There is a reason that Brisbane is the capital of the Sunshine State, the climate is fantastic. If you are moving to Brisbane, you can basically forget about winter. 

The average annual temperature in Brisbane is between 16 and 26 degrees. On average Brisbane has more than 300 sunny days a year! So much time for outdoor activities… Sounds perfect to us.  

Check out the Bureau of Meteorology for more climate information. 

Moving to Brisbane means you will have countless stunning beaches right at your doorstep. Drive south for an hour and you will reach the beautiful beaches at the Gold Coast, go for a float at Tallebudgera creek or watch the surfers from the hill at Burleigh beach. Further south is the beautiful Byron Bay, just a short two-hour drive, perfect for a weekend getaway. 

But that is not all! Drive an hour north of Brisbane to the stunning beaches of the Sunshine Coast, we are talking chilled-out, white sandy beaches. Visit the Noosa National Park or the bustling Kings Beach, complete with a saltwater pool!   

Brisbane even has the only inner-city, man-made beach in Australia! Brisbane people love beaches so much they built Streets Beach right in the centre of South Bank, swimming is free and it’s open year-round.   

Brisbane has a wide array of art and culture. QAGOMA in Southbank hosts an impressive variety of Australian and international exhibitions. Also located in Southbank is the Queensland Museum, which is home to the SparkLab, an educational and interactive space filled with fun hands-on displays and experiments, perfect for kids!

If you are looking for performing arts centres, Brisbane has that too! QPAC and the Brisbane Powerhouse both host an impressive array of live shows including musicals, plays, comedy acts, and much more.  

The city also hosts a wide array of cultural celebrations including the Paniyiri Greek FestivalOktoberfest, and BrisAsia festival. There is truly something for everyone in Brisbane.  

Moving to Brisbane is much more affordable than the other major Australian cities, Sydney and Melbourne. According to budget direct, the rent prices in Brisbane are 14.17% lower than in Melbourne and a whopping 59.10% lower than in Sydney.  
Houses in Brisbane are also much more affordable to buy. According to Domain, in March 2021 the median house price in Brisbane was $632,999, compared to $974,397 in Melbourne and wait for it… $1,309,195 in Sydney! 

If you are interested in beach camping or 4wding then moving to Brisbane will be perfect for you. There are countless islands a short drive from Brisbane that boast long sandy beaches and 4wd tracks. Visit Fraser Island, Stradbroke Island, Bribie Island, or Moreton Island, you will not be disappointed.
