Brisbane’s migration story

Brisbane's migration history is characterised by a diverse and evolving tapestry of cultures. The city's indigenous heritage dates back thousands of years, with the local Indigenous people, including the Jagera and Turrbal being the first inhabitants. European settlement began in the early 19th century, attracting British settlers seeking new opportunities. In the 20th century, waves of immigrants arrived from various parts of Europe, contributing to the city's multicultural makeup. 

Brisbane continues to welcome migrants from around the world, adding to its vibrant and inclusive community.
