Brisbane

... a modern international city

ABOUT BRISBANE

The capital of Queensland, Brisbane is a modern, diverse city that offers a perfect blend of lively city life and relaxed,

friendly lifestyle. With a culturally diverse population of nearly two million people, Brisbane is Australia’s third largest

city behind Sydney and Melbourne.

It is serviced by a convenient public transport system including an extensive ferry system that helps you make the most

of this ‘river city’. There are world‐class sporting venues, cultural precincts, beautiful parks, and festivals all year round

that make living in Brisbane exciting and rewarding. Many visitors come for the excellent climate, even more stay for

the lifestyle!

Student experience

When I first arrived in Brisbane I was

surprised to see how big it is. Before I came

to Queensland I knew about Sydney only, but

Brisbane is so beautiful and clean compared to

Vietnamese cities.

I go out every weekend with my friends to do

something different. We usually take the bus

to Chinatown or go by ferry to Southbank for

a picnic.

I’d like to stay in Brisbane after high school,

I plan to study at university here.

ABOUT CAIRNS AND THE TROPICAL NORTH

Student experience

I chose Cairns for my Study Abroad Program

because I wanted something totally different

from what I was used to.

Here in Cairns and the tropics I experienced a

completely new kind of weather and how you

live with the rain and the heat in summer.

The Great Barrier Reef was also another reason

why I chose Cairns. It is just amazing!

Having the rainforest almost in your backyard is

also quite different from any European country.

When I have finished my education in Germany

I want to return to Australia.

So, yes: I’LL BE BACK …

parks, modern shopping centres endless places to eat and watch the world go by with your new friends.

The Gold Coast is Australia’s premier business and tourism destination with a vibrant interaction between lifestyle,

general commerce, and green, clean industries, including education, information technology, luxury boat

manufacturing, film and Television production and tourism. You will feel right at home in our culturally diverse

community with a homestay family you may find difficult to leave.

With all this, consider 300 days of sunshine, a big blue sky, fresh air and a picture perfect azure ocean. Plus, the climate is

as warm as the welcome you’ll receive when you choose to study on the Gold Coast. There’s simply no other place like it!

Student experience

I like the Gold Coast because it has many shops,

beaches and cafes. The beaches are bigger and

more beautiful than I imagined.

My family belongs to the surf lifeclub so I am

lucky to go to the beach almost every weekend –

this is new for me because in Korea I didn’t go to

the beach.

I feel more relaxed now than when I was in Seoul.

My parents are happy because I am studying

hard, but I am also having fun.

The Gold Coast is smaller than Seoul, but there

is also lots to do in my free time.

Sunshine Coast

... beach, hinterland and urban centres to enjoy

ABOUT THE SUNSHINE COAST

The Sunshine Coast region stretches from Caloundra in the south to Rainbow Beach in the north, an area of

approximately 3200 square kilometres. Students and visitors will enjoy the special Sunshine Coast lifestyle –

the sun, sand and surf.

Students will also enjoy the friendliness of the people and easy access to Brisbane, the capital of Queensland.

The Sunshine Coast is one hour’s drive north of Brisbane. This stretch of coast features beachside tourist precincts,

rural hinterland, and urban centres. The Sunshine Coast Airport is located in the centre of the Sunshine Coast at

Maroochydore and caters for domestic flights.

The region’s agricultural areas produce a range of products including sugar, ginger, sub-tropical fruits, vegetables, and

macadamia nuts. The region is also a major fishing sector processing fish and seafood for domestic and export markets.

My name is Cristina de Souza and I come

from Brazil. I chose to study in the Sunshine Coast

because of the beautiful beaches I saw on

the internet. I was so glad that they looked even

more beautiful in real life!

My school is close to the beach so I can go

surfing after school and on the weekends.

On the weekends I also go on day trips with my

friends to Brisbane, sometimes we go to local

markets and my homestay family has taken

me hiking in the Noosa National Park. It’s hard

to believe that the city is so close to so much

beautiful nature! I have already seen a wild

kangaroo and a wild koala!

Toowoomba has twice been voted Australia’s best city in which to live. Toowoomba is the hub of the famous

Darling Downs region and is known as the Gateway to the West. Noted for its grain crops, cotton, vegetables and

timber, the Darling Downs is an important part of Queensland’s agricultural production.

The city is a leisurely 90 minutes drive from Queensland’s capital city, Brisbane, and only two hours from the

beaches of the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.

Student experience

The moment I set my feet on the ground in the Garden

City, Toowoomba, I was surely given a thrill by the rich

abundant image displayed in front of my eyes. This

immediately made me have a greater, more consuming

interest in this city, people and the whole country.

The teachers here are the greatest teachers I’ve ever met;

they all take great responsibility for the learning and

success of their students.

Living with my homestay family has been one of

the coolest experiences I have ever had. I think my

homestay represents most Australian people in that

they are unbelievably polite and eager.

Through the experience of studying and living in

Australia I have renewed my perspective on life and

have become a better person overall. My life in Australia

was a priceless journey that will be forever embedded

in my memory. These two years have

truly been the best time of my life.
