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.

Movie World (in Oxenford) and Surfers Paradise (SkyPoint Observation Deck, Infinity Attraction, & more). There's much more to do: let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands, take in nature's colorful creations at Roma Street Parkland, explore the activities along The Brisbane River, and take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-tha Lookout.
