Australia Studies Centre
Explore Australian culture while living with Australian families and taking classes alongside Australian students at Christian Heritage College in Brisbane. “Brisbane is not only a beautiful river city filled with ferries and bridges and sky-scrapers and quirky art installations, but it’s foot-friendly and built for adventure and outdoor experiences. Brisbane is also (close to) . . . the Great Barrier Reef, Frazier Island, the Sunshine Coast, the Gold Coast, and Surfer’s Paradise, the Scenic Rim and Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo.” - BestSemester
