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 Burleigh Heads Beach. You'll explore and learn at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre and Queensland Art Gallery. Explore Brisbane's surroundings by going to Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah), Pacific Fair Shopping Centre (in Broadbeach) and Anthea Polson Art (in Main Beach). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, explore the galleries of Artworks in Clay by Anne Gentry-Smith, enjoy the sea views from Caloundra Lighthouses, and see the interesting displays at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise.

For photos, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Brisbane road trip planning site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. Expect a daytime high around 82°F in December, and nighttime lows around 68°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
