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 Sea World Theme Park and Warner Bros. Movie World make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Brisbane side-trips: Dreamworld (in Coomera) and Surfer's Paradise Beach (in Surfers Paradise). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, explore the activities along The Brisbane River, let little ones run wild at South Bank Parklands, and admire the natural beauty at Roma Street Parkland.
