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.
Relax by the water at Surfer's Paradise Beach and Dicky Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Surfers Paradise (SkyPoint Observation Deck & SkyPoint Climb), Pelican Feeding (in Labrador) and Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast (in Nerang). Pack the 22nd (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Sea World Theme Park. And it doesn't end there: have fun at South Bank Parklands, admire the natural beauty at Roma Street Parkland, view the masterpieces at Atrium Gallery at Buderim Craft Cottage, and take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-tha Lookout.
