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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Sea World Theme Park and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Get out of town with these interesting Brisbane side-trips: Warner Bros. Movie World (in Oxenford), Dreamworld (in Coomera) and Pelican Feeding (in Labrador). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Surfer's Paradise Beach, get great views at Mount Coot-tha Lookout, explore the activities along The Brisbane River, and take in nature's colorful creations at Roma Street Parkland.
