Location & Lifestyle

Brisbane, Australia offers a range of lifestyle benefits including climate, culture, family fun and sport.

The perfect place to raise a family, Brisbane is one of the safest cities in Australia and boasts a wide range of cultural attractions, numerous theatres, art galleries and a world class museum, most of which are a ten minute stroll from the Mater campus. The city is also well served by four universities and a range of other educational facilities.

Just an hours drive from famed golden beaches and the beautiful Gold and Sunshine Coasts, Brisbane is one of Australia's most liveable and affordable capital cities.

Located in Queensland, Brisbane enjoys a subtropical climate providing sunny days almost all year round, with enough rainfall to keep the city and suburbs cool and green.

Mater is based in the suburb of South Brisbane within one kilometre from Brisbane's central business and shopping districts, and minutes from the cosmopolitan and cultural hubs of South Bank and West End. It is easily accessible by both public (bus/train/ferry) and private transport (car/bicycle/motorcycle).

Brisbane is also the home for many of Queensland and Australia's major sporting events in rugby league, rugby union, AFL and cricket. We attract world class performers to our film, fashion, food and theatre festivals as well as host large rock concerts. Brisbane really shines during the annual Brisbane festival, held in September.
