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 Eagle Street Pier and State Library Of Queensland. Go for a jaunt from Brisbane to Main Beach to see Sea World Theme Park about 1h 30 min away. There's much more to do: get your game on at South Bank Parklands, explore the activities along The Brisbane River, look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, and snap pictures at Story Bridge.

Make your Brisbane itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Getting from Rockhampton to Brisbane by flight takes about 4 hours. Other options: do a combination of train and flight; or drive.
