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.
St. John's Anglican Cathedral and Boggo Road Gaol (Jail) will appeal to history buffs. Visit Burleigh Head National Park and Kings Beach for some beach relaxation. Explore Brisbane's surroundings by going to Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah), Fingal Head Lighthouse (in Fingal Head) and Anthea Polson Art (in Main Beach). Spend the 26th (Thu) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. There's lots more to do: trek along Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Old St Stephen's Catholic Church (Pugin Chapel), see the interesting displays at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, and take a stroll through West End.
