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.
Get out of town with these interesting Brisbane side-trips: Warner Bros. Movie World (in Oxenford), Surfers Paradise (SkyPoint Observation Deck & Surfers Paradise Beach) and Sea World Theme Park (in Main Beach). There's still lots to do: walk around South Bank Parklands, look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, take in nature's colorful creations at Roma Street Parkland, and find something for the whole family at Wheel of Brisbane.

For more things to do, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Brisbane trip itinerary maker .
