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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes West End as well as Mirimar Cruises. Captain Cook Memorial and Lighthouse and St. John's Anglican Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore hidden gems such as Bulcock Beach and Kirra Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Atrium Gallery at Buderim Craft Cottage (in Buderim), Montville (Artworks in Clay by Anne Gentry-Smith & Kondalilla Falls) and Saint Augustine's Catholic Church (in Coolangatta). Spend the 11th (Mon) with some fine spirits on a distillery tour. Spend the 15th (Fri) on the water with a fishing tour. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Queensland Art Gallery, see the interesting displays at Museum of Brisbane, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kangaroo Point Cliffs Park, and enjoy the sand and surf at Moffat Beach.
