Life & Style Weekend - - ESCAPE -

If you love sport, you will love Bris­bane – it is that sim­ple.

The four football codes are ob­vi­ously big draw­cards – the Bron­cos (NRL), Reds (Su­per Rugby), Roar (A-league soc­cer) and Lions (AFL) all call Bris­bane home.

The Lions play at the Gabba, while the other three play at Sun­corp Sta­dium, ar­guably the coun­try’s best football sta­dium.

The Gabba is also an in­ter­na­tional-stan­dard cricket ground, home to in­ter­na­tional and do­mes­tic matches in all for­mats.

The Bul­lets have re­turned to the Na­tional Bas­ket­ball League and play out of the Bris­bane En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre.

Then there is the Bris­bane In­ter­na­tional ten­nis tour­na­ment held every Jan­uary, which draws in mas­sive-name play­ers who are pre­par­ing for the Aus­tralian Open.

There are mul­ti­ple golf cour­ses for all skill lev­els, the Bris­bane Aquatic Cen­tre is a world-class swim­ming venue, the Anna Meares Velo­drome is an amaz­ing track cy­cling venue and the list goes on.

So no mat­ter your cho­sen sport, Bris­bane will have you cov­ered.
