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.
Go for a jaunt from Brisbane to Main Beach to see Sea World Theme Park about 1h 30 min away. Next up on the itinerary: let little ones run wild at South Bank Parklands, take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-tha Lookout, identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, and take in nature's colorful creations at Roma Street Parkland.

Planning Brisbane trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

Mumbai, India to Brisbane is an approximately 18-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from Mumbai to Brisbane due to the time zone difference.
