Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
Venture out of the city with trips to Katoomba (The Three Sisters & Wentworth Falls) and Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum (in Faulconbridge). There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, observe the fascinating underwater world at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, take a stroll through Darling Harbour, and kick back and relax at Bondi Beach.

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.

Pack the 6th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Dreamworld. There's still lots to do: walk around South Bank Parklands, take in nature's colorful creations at Roma Street Parkland, take some stellar pictures from Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt. Coot-tha, and identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.
