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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Eat Street Northshore and Noosa Chocolate Factory. Step out of the city life by going to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Dolphin & Whale Watching. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Museum of Brisbane, get a taste of the local shopping with Queen Street Mall, explore and take pictures at Suncorp Stadium, and engage your brain at ScienCentre.
