South East Queensland is home to over 3 million of the State's 4.7 million population. Brisbane is the State capital, a big, vibrant city located on the Brisbane River and offering a plethora of shopping, dining and entertainment options.
South East Queensland is considered to run from Noosa in the north to the Gold Coast and NSW border in the south. The areas are quite distinct, with the Sunshine Coast in the north best known for its gourmet restaurants, boutiques and waterside real estate.
The Gold Coast is a popular holiday destination for families, as it is home to several well known theme parks, including Sea World. The hinterland areas behind both the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast are extremely popular with those seeking a tree-change.
