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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Boggo Road Gaol and Catholic Old St. Stephen's Church (chapel). You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre and Queen Street Mall. Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, take in the views from Victoria Bridge Abutment, explore the world behind art at Queensland Art Gallery, and examine the collection at Queensland Maritime Museum.
