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.
We've included these beaches for you: King Island and Shorncliffe Beach. When in Brisbane, make a side trip to see Bacchus Brewing Co. in Capalaba, approximately 44 minutes away. There's lots more to do: get your game on at South Bank Parklands, admire the natural beauty at Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt. Coot-tha, find something for the whole family at Wheel of Brisbane, and get great views at Mount Coot-tha Lookout.

To see reviews, ratings, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Brisbane trip itinerary planning app .

Cape Town, South Africa to Brisbane is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Cape Town to Brisbane due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Cape Town in December, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Brisbane, with lows around 23°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Fri) so you can travel to Loganholme.
