Brisbane and Australia
Daily high temperatures in July average about 22 degrees Celsius or 72 degrees
Fahrenheit. Brisbane is about
900 KM (or 570 miles) north of Sydney.
Australia is vast, roughly the same size as continental USA and there are many
places one can visit including those in Queensland.
We acknowledge the First Peoples – the Traditional Owners of the lands
where we are, and we recognise their continuing connection to land, water and
community. We pay respect to Elders – past, present and emerging –
and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal Peoples and Torres Strait Islanders
continue to play.
