Established in the 1820’s as the new location for the Moreton Bay penal colony, Brisbane CBD, in what is now known as Garden’s Point, was selected for its elevated position with access to water holes, cooling breezes and relatively convenient access to building materials. Development of the original convict settlement began in the area now referred to as the Queen Street precinct and was generally planned at right angles to the river with the cities current rectangular and square planning grid pattern resulting from this initial decision.
The transition of Brisbane to from a convict settlement to a free settlement occurred in the late 1830’s with the first sale of Brisbane land taking place in 1842. With little care taken during the initial stages to reserve riverside land for public use the government run farm at the tip of the south east was dedicated as a garden and is now known as the City Botanic Garden.
The Queensland Government open the first school, Brisbane National School in 1860 and the development of the city continued to grow as municipal improvements such as town lighting from the Brisbane Gas Works and the growing need for recreational space coincided with the Gympie Gold Rush bringing prosperity, wealth and further improvements such as the development of a railway system to the colony.
As the city continued to develop general improvements in infrastructure, transportation, planning, facilities and amenities followed as the city rapidly became a hub for commercial and retail enterprise. Continuing as a popular choice for residents, Brisbane City offers a cosmopolitan, fully-serviced lifestyle at an attractive and competitive price point compared to other Australian capital cities.
