Abstract This article examines four interrelated aspects of the physical environment of Brisbane's CBD (Central Business District) core. It considers the topographic features of the site of the city centre, outlines the nature of built form and examines the main elements of the microclimate. By comparing data from these three aspects in relation to the landscape of the core, it is apparent that changes in the urban structure are needed to modify some of the conditions generated by climatic extremes. Planning policy changes and new development controls are proposed.
