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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Surfer's Paradise Beach and Kings Beach. Visiting Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Mooloolaba Beach will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Brisbane: Marina Mirage (in Main Beach) and Tanawha Valley Golf & Tennis (in Tanawha). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Dicky Beach, get your game on at Psychic Readings | Twin Featherz, and let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands.
