Brisbane

Brisbane, Australia

With a population of about 2 million people, Brisbane is the third-largest city in Australia. Set on the Brisbane River, the city is a booming river town on the way up, with an edgy arts scene, ecclectic nightlife, and great coffee and restaurants. Lush parks and historic buildings meets skyscrappers in the city, with subcultural undercurrents running cool and deep, with bookshops, multi-cultural restaurants and bars aplenty.

Women digital nomads will feel comfortable in Brisbane, which has a relatively low crime rate in comparison to other cities of such size. Like Sydney and other large cities, trains and train stations are usually considered a common crime zone throughout the afternoons and nights. Try to avoid traveling on trains and buses during these periods of the day as well, especially if traveling alone.

The best time to visit Brisbane is from March to May — autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. Temperatures during this season stay in the comfortable mid-70s with little rainfall. The city's winter (June to August) and spring (September to November) are also popular times to visit thanks to the mild temps and dry days. Brisbane's wet, humid season spans from December all the way to early March.
