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.
On the 24th (Sat), explore the activities along The Brisbane River and then get your game on at South Bank Parklands. On the 25th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: tour the pleasant surroundings at Moffat Beach and then look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

For ratings, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Brisbane holiday planner.

Bangkok, Thailand to Brisbane is an approximately 12.5-hour combination of train and flight. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Bangkok to Brisbane due to the time zone difference. In March, Brisbane is a bit cooler than Bangkok - with highs of 32°C and lows of 23°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sun) to allow time to travel to Gold Coast.
