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.
Explore Brisbane's surroundings by going to Warner Bros. Movie World (in Oxenford) and Sea World Theme Park (in Main Beach). There's still lots to do: walk around South Bank Parklands, stop by Noosa Chocolate Factory, find something for the whole family at Wheel of Brisbane, and take in nature's colorful creations at City Botanic Gardens.
