If it weren't for the amazing view of Sydney Harbour, Mosman might seem light-years away from Australia's largest and busiest city.
Relax by the water at Palm Beach and Shelly Beach. Get outdoors at Taronga Zoo and Bronte Beach. Go for a jaunt from Mosman to Blacktown to see Featherdale Wildlife Park about 44 minutes away. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Balmoral Beach, Mosman, stop by Bridget Kennedy Project Space, contemplate the long history of Vaucluse House, and stroll through Nielsen Park.

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 Queensland Art Gallery and Catholic Old St. Stephen's Church (chapel). Step off the beaten path and head to Queensland Maritime Museum and St Helena Island National Park. There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, contemplate the waterfront views at The Brisbane River, take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-tha Lookout, and snap pictures at Victoria Bridge Abutment.
