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.
We've included these beaches for you: Dicky Beach and Moffat Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and The Brisbane River. And it doesn't end there: take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-tha Lookout, admire the natural beauty at Roma Street Parkland, and snap pictures at Victoria Bridge Abutment.

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

Stockholm, Sweden to Brisbane is an approximately 25-hour flight. You can also do a combination of ferry and flight.
