Welcome to Brisbane

Brisbane is a green city with an enviable subtropical climate and diverse population. It is one of the fastest-growing cities in Australia and is known for its vibrant urban precincts, outdoor lifestyle and friendly locals. Brisbane residents are generally young and skilled, highly educated and culturally diverse. From the natural pleasures of parklands to the urban appeal of art galleries, shopping and cinemas, Brisbane has it all.

Suburbs of Brisbane

Brisbane is a large city and can often be confusing to first time visitors due to the Brisbane River literally winding its way right through the middle of the city. To help you get a better idea of where everything is in relation to everything else, click here to see Brisbane’s suburbs combined into the main geographic regions.

Housing in Brisbane

As Brisbane grows, the council and town planners are turning to high density living to provide housing in suitable locations. High density means building on smaller blocks of land, or building up. Examples of strata living include free standing dwellings in a gated community, duplexes, apartments and townhouses. Approximately 30% of DHA properties in Brisbane are part of a strata plan.

If you are new to strata living, please consider the by-laws and/or house rules that are available against the property in Online Services, and DHA's need to comply with legislation when deciding if a property is right for you.
