The metropolitan area of ​​Brisbane, located along the east coast of the country, has a population of nearly 2.5 million. A resident of Brisbane is commonly referred to as a "Brisbanite".

Brisbane's central business district is located on the original settlement, located within a bend of the Brisbane River, approximately 14 miles from its mouth at Moreton Bay. The metropolitan area extends in all directions along the floodplain of the Brisbane River Valley, between the bay and the Great Dividing Range.

As the city is governed by numerous municipalities, these are centered around the Brisbane City Council which has jurisdiction over the largest area and population in metropolitan Brisbane and is also the largest local Australian Government Area by population.

The city and the river running through it are named after Thomas Brisbane, governor of New South Wales from 1821 to 1825. The first European settlement in Queensland was a penal colony in Redcliffe, 28km north of the Brisbane business district, in 1824.

That settlement was soon abandoned and moved to North Quay in 1825. Brisbane was chosen as the capital when Queensland was proclaimed a separate colony from New South Wales in 1859. The city played a key role during World War II as General Douglas MacArthur's Southwest Pacific headquarters.

Brisbane has hosted many major cultural and sporting events including the Commonwealth Games in 1982, the Universal Exposition in 1988 and the final of the Goodwill Games in 2001. In 2032 it will host the Games of the 35th Olympiad.

In 2008 Brisbane was classified as a "Gamma +" city in the World Cities Study Group inventory by the University of Loughborough. It was also declared the 16th most habitable city in the world in 2009 by The Economist.
