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.
Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Queensland Art Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Art on Cairncross and Robina Town Shopping Centre. Change things up with these side-trips from Brisbane: Atrium Gallery at Buderim Craft Cottage (in Buderim), Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve (in Maleny) and Surfer's Paradise Beach (in Surfers Paradise). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, browse the different shops at Australia Fair Shopping Centre, see the interesting displays at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, and have fun at South Bank Parklands.
