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 Surfer's Paradise Beach and Australia Zoo. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and Art on Cairncross. Explore Brisbane's surroundings by going to Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise (in Surfers Paradise), Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre (in Biggera Waters) and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, admire the masterpieces at Queensland Art Gallery, kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach, and see the interesting displays at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre.
