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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Chenrezig Institute and Caloundra Lighthouses. Queensland Museum & Sciencentre and Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Brisbane's surroundings by going to Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre (in Biggera Waters), Pacific Fair Shopping Centre (in Broadbeach) and Surfer's Paradise Beach (in Surfers Paradise). Pack the 17th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Sea World Theme Park. Pack the 27th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Dreamworld. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, look for gifts at Opals Down Under, buy something for everyone on your list at Kawana Shoppingworld, and kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach.
