Brisbane is the third most populous city in Australia, so you can imagine that getting around the city can be a bit difficult.

Read our blog to find out more about the exciting sporting fixtures that are heading to Brisbane.
With the season drawing to a close in April, the remaining fixtures will decide where they finish in the table, with a lot still to play for.
Whilst it looks like Sydney FC can’t be caught, the two Melbourne based teams lie just above Brisbane Roar. If Brisbane can get a good run of wins together then they could finish as high as 2nd place in the A-League.
Soccer is becoming more and more popular in Australia and has attracted a number of world class players such as former English Premier League players Tim Cahill and William Gallas. If you are looking for some top quality soccer in Australia, head to the Suncorp Stadium to see Brisbane Roar in action.
The Brisbane Global Rugby Tens
Advertised as ‘2 days of rugby heaven’, the Suncorp Stadium hosts the Brisbane Global Tens tournament on 11 & 12 of February. With some world-class players participating, rugby fans will be in their element.
Featuring all ten Australian and New Zealand clubs, plus four of the top teams from across the world, this knock-out tournament attracts fans from all over.
Rugby fans are truly spoilt in Brisbane, as you can also catch the Brisbane Broncos playing in the National Rugby League at the stunning Suncorp Stadium.
Can the Broncos catch the teams sitting above them on the ladder? It has now been 10 long years since Broncos won the premiership, so fans will be hoping they can go on a real winning streak from now until the last game in September.
The current standings in the ladder show that there is everything left to play for this season, so the remaining fixtures should be full of excitement for rugby fans.
If you’re a big cricket fan then you’re going to love visiting the great Gabba stadium.
The Queensland Bulls play in the Sheffield Shield throughout February and March. With the ground sitting in close proximity to the Brisbane River, the longest river in South East Queensland, there is plenty to see before and after the match.
It was recently announced that Gabba will host its first ever Ashes Test later this year, bringing further cricket action to the city of Brisbane.
