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 Surfer's Paradise Beach and Kings Beach. Shop till you drop at Opals Down Under and Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre. Change things up with these side-trips from Brisbane: Atrium Gallery at Buderim Craft Cottage (in Buderim), Kawana Shoppingworld (in Buddina) and MaisyMoo (in Caloundra). Spend the 10th (Thu) exploring nature at Conondale National Park. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, enjoy the sand and surf at Mooloolaba Beach, have fun at South Bank Parklands, and browse the different shops at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre.
