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.
Head to Queen Street Mall and Eat Street Northshorefor plenty of shopping. Step out of the city life by going to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Shorncliffe Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to King Island (in Wellington Point) and Wolston Farmhouse (in Wacol). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands, admire the masterpieces at GOMA, and contemplate the waterfront views at The Brisbane River.
