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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Surfers Paradise Beach and Burleigh Heads Beach. Visiting Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Australia Zoo will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Brisbane: Mooloolaba (HMAS Brisbane, Scuba & Snorkeling, & more), Surfers Paradise (SkyPoint Observation Deck & Infinity Attraction) and Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast (in Nerang). Spend the 9th (Thu) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. Spend the 13th (Mon) exploring nature at Kondalilla National Park. Next up on the itinerary: let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands, get to know the resident critters at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, enjoy the sand and surf at Dicky Beach, and get in on the family fun at Warner Bros. Movie World.
