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.
Step out of the city life by going to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Burleigh Heads Beach. Explore Brisbane's surroundings by going to Marina Mirage (in Main Beach) and Surfer's Paradise Beach (in Surfers Paradise). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape of Burleigh Head National Park, take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-tha Lookout, explore the activities along The Brisbane River, and kick back and relax at Moffat Beach.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Brisbane itinerary planner.
