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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Chenrezig Institute and Gallery of Modern Art. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Surfers Paradise Beach and Mooloolaba Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Anthea Polson Art (in Main Beach), Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise (in Surfers Paradise) and Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast (in Nerang). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, see the interesting displays at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, step into the grandiose world of Sunshine Castle, and enjoy the sea views from Caloundra Lighthouses.
