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 find plenty of places to visit near Brisbane: Warner Bros. Movie World (in Oxenford), Dreamworld (in Coomera) and Sea World Theme Park (in Main Beach). There's still lots to do: let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands, enjoy the sand and surf at Surfer's Paradise Beach, identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Australia Zoo.
