Brisbane is a modern, sub-tropical capital city with the river at its heart. Boasting an enviable lifestyle with year-round sunshine, the Brisbane region expands to include Moreton Bay, Ipswich, Logan, Scenic Rim and Somerset council areas. The city and surrounds offer a range of appealing visitor experiences and are home to numerous coastal villages, an expansive bay of islands featuring Mulgumpin (Moreton Island) and Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) and a hinterland of historic countryside towns, lush national parks and fertile farmland.

It is Australia’s third-largest city and is home to nearly two and a half million culturally diverse people. Its world-class sporting venues, conference facilities, cruise ship terminal, parklands, cafes, laneways and extensive river walks make Brisbane a vibrant and welcoming, metropolitan city.

Our reputation as an international events capital has been recognised with Brisbane being elected as Host City for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The city has an extensive music, sporting and cultural events calendar that make the most of the year-round temperate climate.  


Nestled in the heart of the multi-billion-dollar Queen’s Wharf precinct, you’ll find The Star Brisbane.

Designed for the enjoyment of locals and visitors alike! Get ready to enjoy an abundance of great restaurants, bars and cafes, four future luxury hotels, the iconic Sky Deck soaring 100 metres above the river and an open-air Leisure Deck perched between the resort’s four towers.

Perched between the resort’s four towers, 37 metres above street level, a 12,000sqm open-air Leisure Deck will deliver an impressive mixed-use space for hotel guests and the public to enjoy. The Leisure Deck will feature an Event Deck, expansive lawn area for sunset picnics and exclusive resort amenities overlooking the city skyline.

It will be the gateway to The Star’s 250-metre-long Sky Deck – a landmark destination which is set become one of Brisbane’s top drawcards. Soaring 100 metres above the Brisbane River, the rooftop space features spectacular restaurants and bars and will be a place where locals and visitors meet, celebrate, or simply soak in the breath-taking views, complementing a huge variety of dining and entertainment options.

Together, The Star Brisbane and broader Queen’s Wharf precinct is expected to attract an estimated 1.4 million additional visitors each year, blending thoughtfully restored heritage buildings with stunning contemporary architecture and beautifully landscaped riverside destinations.
