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.
Get outdoors at Maroochydore Beach and Bulcock Beach. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Burleigh Head National Park and Kirra Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brisbane: Natural Bridge (in Springbrook) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Mooloolaba).
