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.
Escape the urban bustle at Scuba & Snorkeling and Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve. Boggo Road Gaol and Cathedral Square will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with a short trip to Artworks in Clay by Anne Gentry-Smith in Montville (about 1h 55 min away). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, get in on the family fun at Wheel of Brisbane, examine the collection at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Catholic Old St. Stephen's Church (chapel).
