Brisbane also lies in the Tropical Cyclone risk area, although cyclones are rare. The last to affect Brisbane was Severe Tropical Cyclone Oma in February 2019. The city is susceptible to severe thunderstorms in the spring and summer months; on 16 November 2008 a severe storm caused tremendous damage in the outer suburbs, most notably The Gap. Roofs were torn off houses and hundreds of trees were felled. More recently, on 27 November 2014, a very strong storm made a direct hit on the city centre. Described as 'the worst storm in a decade,' very large hail, to the size of cricket balls, smashed skyscraper windows while a flash flood tore through the CBD. Wind gusts of 141 km/h (88 mph) were recorded in some suburbs, many houses were severely damaged, cars were destroyed and planes were flipped at the Brisbane and Archerfield Airports. Dust storms in Brisbane are extremely rare; on 23 September 2009, however, a severe dust stormblanketed Brisbane, as well as other parts of eastern Aust...

Foi fundada pelos britânicos em 1825. Antes da colonização européia, a área de Brisbane era habitada pelos povos Turrbal , cujos ancestrais migraram para a região através do estreito de Torres. A área da baía de Moreton foi inicialmente explorada por Matthew Flinders. Em 17 de julho de 1799, Flinders desembarcou no que hoje é conhecido como Woody Point, que ele chamou de "Red Cliff Point", após as falésias de cor vermelha da baía. Em 1823, o governador de Nova Gales do Sul, Thomas Brisbane, instruiu que uma nova exploração seria desenvolvida, e um grupo liderado por John Oxleyexploraria a baía de Moreton. Oxley explorou o rio Brisbane, na medida do Goodna. Oxley recomendou o ponto de Red Cliff para uma nova colônia, relatando que os navios podiam atracar em qualquer maré e facilmente chegar perto da costa. Queensland foi proclamada uma colônia separada em 6 de junho de 1859, com Brisbane como sua capital, embora não tenha sido incorporado como uma cidade até 1902. Mais de vinte pequ...

Brisbane éghajlata párás, szubtrópusi. A nyár forró és párás, a tél száraz és enyhe. Novembertől márciusig gyakoriak a viharok Brisbane felett, alkalomszerű jégesővel, orkán erejű széllel.
A várost Sir Thomas Brisbane-ról nevezték el, aki Új-Dél-Wales kormányzója volt 1821-től 1825-ig. 1823-ban Brisbane kormányzó John Oxley hadnagyot elküldte, hogy találjon egy új helyet a visszaeső elítélteknek. Oxley felfedezte, hogy egy nagy folyó ömlik a Moreton-öbölbe. Egy évvel később megérkeztek az első elítéltek az újonnan kijelölt helyre. Brisbane 1824 decemberében meglátogatta a fegyenctelepet és Oxley azt javasolta neki, hogy mind a folyót, mind a települést róla nevezzék el. A törvények szerint szabad telepesek nem közelíthették meg a telep 50 mérföldes körzetét. A közvélemény nyomására végül is beszüntették az elítéltek ausztráliai deportálását. A fegyenctelepülést 1834-ben várossá nyilvánították és 1839-ben megnyílt a szabad telepesek előtt is a hely. A fegyenctelep 1842-ben zárta be kapuit. Amikor 1859-ben Brisbane Queensland állam közigazgatási központja lett, még csak hatezren éltek a városban. 1901-ben Ausztráliaszövetségi államai egyesültek, Queensland állam fejlődé...
