Monthly expenses

Cost of living as a student in Brisbane (


Brisbane, the home of UQ’s St Lucia and Herston campuses, is the capital city of Queensland and its economic engine room. Young and progressive, the city is fast becoming a hub in the Asia–Pacific for business, investment, major events and education. It is also home to over 200 nationalities and 220 languages.

Brisbane city has a great live music scene that can be discovered in Fortitude Valley and West End. For comedy, live theatre and dance, head to the Brisbane Powerhouse and the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC). The Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) is one of the best modern art galleries in the country, and keep an eye out for the Brisbane Writers Festival and the Brisbane Festival that attract international artists from across the globe.

Brisbane’s amazing weather and sporting facilities make physical activity a must. Kayak along the Brisbane River, rock climb your way to the top of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, ride along more than 20 kilometres of riverside cycle paths, join a sporting club, or barrack like a local when you attend a rugby union, rugby league, cricket, ‘Aussie Rules’ or football match at one of our famous sporting stadiums.
