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.
Caloundra Lighthouses and Catholic Old St. Stephen's Church (chapel) will appeal to history buffs. Take a break from the city and head to Burleigh Head National Park and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Brisbane: Kings Beach (in Caloundra) and Kirra Beach (in Coolangatta). There's more to do: steep yourself in history at Boggo Road Gaol and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. John's Anglican Cathedral.

Tucked snugly beneath a steep, craggy mount--known as Castle Hill--the vibrant city of Townsville is as picturesque as its backdrop.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Billabong Sanctuary and Scuba & Snorkeling. Step out of the city life by going to Little Crystal Creek and The Strand. Next up on the itinerary: head off the coast to Museum of Tropical Queensland, contemplate the long history of National Trust Heritage Centre, look for all kinds of wild species at Townsville Town Common Conservation Park, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St James Cathedral.
