A city of towering skyscrapers, sandy beaches, and tree-lined streets, Gold Coast has an unpretentious air complemented by a citywide focus on sports and the arts.
Take a break from the city and head to Surfers Paradise Beach and Surfers Paradise Golf Club. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and Anthea Polson Art. There's still lots to do: observe the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park, revel in the low prices at Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre, look for gifts at Miami Marketta, and buy something for everyone on your list at Robina Town Shopping Centre.

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Whites Hill Reserve. Do your shopping at Eat Street Northshore and Robert Henderson Gallery. There's much more to do: stroll around South Bank Parklands, stop by The Carseldine Farmers & Artisan Markets, take a stroll through Queen Street Mall, and take in nature's colorful creations at City Botanic Gardens.

To plan Brisbane vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
