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 Caboolture Historical Village and Albert Street Uniting Church. Step off the beaten path and head to Daisy Hill Conservation Park and Opal Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Brisbane: Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology (in Caboolture), Club Pine Rivers (in Bray Park) and Lake Eden (in North Lakes). Spend the 6th (Sat) exploring nature at D'Aguilar National Park. Spend the 13th (Sat) with some fine spirits on a distillery tour. And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Old St Stephen's Catholic Church (Pugin Chapel), take a stroll through West End, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and take in the awesome beauty at Glass House Mountains National Park.
