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.
Relax by the water at Burleigh Head National Park and Kings Beach. Discover out-of-the-way places like Scuba & Snorkeling and Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brisbane: Tropical Fruit World (in Duranbah), Fudgyboombahs (in Montville) and Natural Bridge (in Springbrook). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, take a leisurely stroll along Eagle Street Pier, admire all the interesting features of Suncorp Stadium, and examine the collection at Museum of Brisbane.

To see maps, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Brisbane trip planner.

Nuremberg, Germany to Brisbane is an approximately 29-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 9 hours traveling from Nuremberg to Brisbane. Prepare for warmer weather when traveling from Nuremberg in December: high temperatures in Brisbane hover around 32°C and lows are around 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Sydney.

Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
We've included these beaches for you: Manly Beach and Coogee Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to Blue Mountains and Palm Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Shelly Beach (in Manly) and Wentworth Falls (in Katoomba). There's still lots to do: trek along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, enjoy the sand and surf at Bondi Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Balmoral Beach, Mosman, and wander the streets of Darling Harbour.

For where to stay, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Sydney day trip app .

Traveling by flight from Brisbane to Sydney takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of bus and flight; or drive. In December, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 21°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
