It was founded and first settled on Morning Peninsular, Frazer Islandwhere the City Centre or CBD currently is now. At first, it was a small miningtown, but those days are long over. The last mine shut down 20 years ago, andtoday the city has received the nickname "green city" as it is veryenvironmentally friendly.
The main transportation system is bus and subway. There are no highwayson Frazer Island as there is no need, with wide roads and streets nowhere nearfull capacity. The bus network is the highest ranked in the world; most bussesare passenger-friendly and the busses running a loop around the city and innersuburbs free of charge. Subway, the stations now are only located in the CBDand inner suburbs, but there are plans to extend the network to CentralActivity Centers that are "going to boom any second"- Mayor.
There are many tourist attractions in the city, the most popular being:The CBD, Town Hall, Parliament House, the 3 Volcanoes, The Arts Centre, Jouryislands, Volcanic Lake and also the cruise ship ride around the island.
The city has a high education, police, hospital and environment rate butnot so much with the fire, a new fire station is set to be completed in thecity and existing stations are going to go threw a huge make over, with 1 newtruck to every station and more employees.
