The state of Queensland, where the queen city of Brisbane reigns supreme, is known as the “Sunshine State”. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, Brisbane is the perfect destination for every foreign student looking for the authentic Australian way of life. In addition to having a great climate, Brisbane has schools and educational organizations of the highest standards, and is close to some of the most extraordinary natural wonders on the continent. For example, Mount Glorious, the Springbrook National Park, the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Moreton Island.

The metropolis is one step away from becoming one of the world leaders in environmental sustainability and has over 2000 natural parks – with more than 2500 animal species! Brisbane is in effect the city with the greatest biodiversity in Australia. Apart from the friendly people and the envious climate, it is a city where the cost of living is affordable in comparison to other major cities, therefore it attracts many different communities and numerous expats. This is reflected in an intense calendar of events and ones that you surely won’t want to miss! When you book your English Course in Brisbane, take a look at the scheduled activities, you will surely be spoiled for choice!

The English School in Brisbane is excellently located in the heart of the city. Only a few minutes walk from the city’s Royal Botanical Gardens and the riverbank.
