Campus

Griffith University consists of a total of five campuses between Brisbane and the Gold Coast in south-east Queensland; four of them are in and around Brisbane. The main campus is in Nathan, and while not the largest, it is the oldest site of the university.

Griffith University ‘s Mt Gravatt campus is also nearby. The focus here is primarily on teaching and research in the field of social and behavioral sciences.

There’s also the nearby South Bank campus in scenic Parklands, home to the Queensland College of Art and the Griffith Film School. The focus here is on the creative and performing arts.

Another campus is in Logan, where the primary focus is community health and education.

The university city of Brisbane

Brisbane is the capital of Queensland in north-eastern Australia and, with around 1.7 million inhabitants, the third largest city on the continent.

Because of the subtropical coastal climate with warm, humid summers and mild, dry winters, Queensland is also called the “sunny state”; from November to April the humidity is extremely high. Above all, the area around Brisbane is worth a visit: Surfers Paradise, Fraser Island or the sapphire-blue Moreton Bay with its white beaches are popular and beautiful destinations. The spacious gardens of the Mt Cootha Botanic Gardens are also worth seeing. When it comes to culture and sport, there is always a lot going on and live music casts a spell over everyone on a tour of trendy cafés.

The mix of city life and nature makes Brisbane an appealing destination for any Australian traveler.
