Built across the floodplain of the meandering Brisbane River the city is one of the oldest in Australia and is known for its distinctive local architecture. The central business district is partially elevated and much of the older suburbs on the north are also hilly however the remainder of the city is very low-lying which has been attributed to exacerbating the effects of flooding events. Brisbane has a subtropical climate with hot, humid summers averaging 26.4°C and dry moderately warm winters averaging 16.2°C.
The local economy centres around information technology, financial services, higher education, and public-sector administration and is all concentrated in and around the central business district. The industrialised urban fringe supports petroleum refining, stevedoring, paper milling, metal working and railway workshops.
