If it weren't for the amazing view of Sydney Harbour, Mosman might seem light-years away from Australia's largest and busiest city.
Step out of the city life by going to Palm Beach and Balmoral Beach, Mosman. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Bronte Beach and Shelly Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Featherdale Wildlife Park in Blacktown (about 44 minutes away). There's much more to do: stroll through Taronga Zoo, stop by Bridget Kennedy Project Space, and steep yourself in history at Vaucluse House.

For more things to do, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Mosman day trip app .

Detroit, USA to Mosman is an approximately 29-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to Australian Eastern Standard Time (New South Wales) is 15 hours. Traveling from Detroit in March, things will get much hotter in Mosman: highs are around 30°C and lows about 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Mon) early enough to travel to Brisbane.

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Queensland Art Gallery and Catholic Old St. Stephen's Church (chapel). Get in touch with nature at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and The Brisbane River. The adventure continues: let little ones run wild at South Bank Parklands, get great views at Mount Coot-tha Lookout, head off the coast to St Helena Island National Park, and take in the views from Victoria Bridge Abutment.

For maps, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Brisbane day trip planner.

You can do a combination of train and flight from Mosman to Brisbane in 3.5 hours. Other options are to do a combination of train, flight, and bus; or drive. In March, daytime highs in Brisbane are 32°C, while nighttime lows are 23°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 8th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Bribie Island.
