Brisbane

Queensland’s biggest town and state capital, Brisbane has an attractive, manicured image based around its riverside aesthetic as well as the contrast between its high-rise center and extensive urban greenery.
Bring the kids along to Mooloolaba Beach and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Venture out of the city with trips to Tanawha Valley Golf & Tennis (in Tanawha) and Australia Zoo (in Beerwah). There's much more to do: let little ones run wild at South Bank Parklands, explore the activities along The Brisbane River, take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-tha Lookout, and take in nature's colorful creations at Roma Street Parkland.

To see more things to do, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Brisbane sightseeing planner.

Melbourne to Brisbane is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or drive. Expect a bit warmer temperatures when traveling from Melbourne in July; daily highs in Brisbane reach 24°C and lows reach 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Tue) to allow time to drive to Gold Coast.

Gold Coast
A city of towering skyscrapers, sandy beaches, and tree-lined streets, Gold Coast has an unpretentious air complemented by a citywide focus on sports and the arts.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Gold Coast trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
