Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
You'll explore and learn at Australian National Maritime Museum and Art Gallery of New South Wales. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Rocks and Darling Harbour. Go for a jaunt from Sydney to Manly to see Shelly Beach about 36 minutes away. The adventure continues: hike along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, see the interesting displays at Hyde Park Barracks Museum, make a trip to Sydney Harbour Bridge, and enjoy the sand and surf at Bondi Beach.

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Burleigh Head National Park. Let the collections at Queensland Art Gallery and Caloundra Regional Art Gallery capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Brisbane side-trips: Surfer's Paradise Beach (in Surfers Paradise), Kings Beach (in Caloundra) and Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre (in Biggera Waters). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Moffat Beach, take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-tha Lookout, and contemplate the waterfront views at The Brisbane River.

To see where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Brisbane road trip planner .
