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.
Attractions like Burleigh Head National Park and Kirra Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Queensland Art Gallery will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brisbane: Montville Art Gallery (in Montville), Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast (in Nerang) and Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve (in Maleny). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, kick back and relax at Moffat Beach, steep yourself in history at Boggo Road Gaol, and have some family-friendly fun at South Bank Parklands.

A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Appreciate the collections at The Shipwreck Galleries and Scitech. Visiting Rockingham Beach and Warnbro Beach will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Mullaloo Beach (in Mullaloo), Fremantle (South Beach Recreation Reserve, The Fremantle Round House, & more) and Quinns Rocks Beach (in Quinns Rocks). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at City Beach, meet the residents at AQWA, pause for some serene contemplation at St Patrick's Basilica, and explore the activities along Swan River.
