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: Surfer's Paradise Beach and Burleigh Head National Park. Visiting Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Moffat Beach will get you outdoors. Go for a jaunt from Brisbane to Main Beach to see Marina Mirage about 1h 35 min away. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach, admire the natural beauty at City Botanic Gardens, get great views at Mount Coot-tha Lookout, and let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands.

For photos, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Brisbane tour planner .
