Plenty of Things To See

ASC is located in Brisbane, the capital of Australia's "Sunshine State." With the Brisbane River winding through the heart of the city, Brisbane maintains stunning natural beauty despite its seat as Australia's 3rd-largest city and fastest growing economic center. Christian Heritage College, ASC's host, is only 20 minutes from the heart of Brisbane. You will not run out of new adventures in this city: there are over 1,200 km of walkways, paths and bikeways, along with museums, dining, shopping and festivals! Brisbane is also a central location for travel to the Sunshine Coast, and it's only an hour from the Gold Coast, Surfer's Paradise, and the Scenic Rim.

Students live with host families in Brisbane and its surroundings, enabling them to experience Australian life firsthand. Generally one student stays in each homestay. Families are urged to integrate students into normal family life as much as possible.  When appropriate, students should expect to help out around the house and plan to be home for most meals.
