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.
Escape the urban bustle at Surfer's Paradise Beach and Kings Beach. Get some cultural insight at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre and Atrium Gallery at Buderim Craft Cottage. Explore Brisbane's surroundings by going to Bulcock Beach (in Caloundra), Marina Mirage (in Main Beach) and Mooloolaba Beach (in Mooloolaba). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, kick back and relax at Maroochydore Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Burleigh Heads Beach, and explore the striking landscape of Burleigh Head National Park.
