A 2015 view of Brisbane City, in the distance, taken at the mouth of the Brisbane River, near the Port of Brisbane, on the east coast of Queensland, Australia. The Port of Brisbane is on the lower reaches of the Brisbane River and on Fisherman's Island at the rivers mouth. Brisbane is the 3rd most important port in Australia for value of goods. Container freight, sugar, grain, coal and bulk liquids (mainly Chlorine), are the major exports. Most of the port facilities are less than three decades old and some are built on reclaimed mangroves and wetlands.
Brisbane City is on a low-lying floodplain, in the southeast corner of Queensland. The city is centred along the Brisbane River and its eastern suburbs line the shores of Moreton Bay. The greater Brisbane region is on the coastal plain east of the Great Dividing Range. Brisbane's metropolitan area sprawls along the Moreton Bay floodplain from Caboolture in the north to Beenleigh in the south and across to Ipswich in the south west. An extensive network of pedestrian and cyclist pathways have been created along the picturesque banks of the Brisbane River, to form a Riverwalk network. Brisbane Airport (IATA code: BNE) is the city's main airport, the third busiest in Australia after Sydney and Melbourne Airports. It is located north-east of the city centre and provides domestic and international passenger services.
