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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate The Rocks and Justice & Police Museum. Museum-lovers will get to explore Australian National Maritime Museum and Hyde Park Barracks Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to The National Pass (in Blue Mountains National Park) and Katoomba (Wentworth Falls, Gallery One88, & more). Spend the 6th (Wed) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Bondi Beach, catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, and kick back and relax at Manly 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.
Step out of the city life by going to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Burleigh Heads Beach. Get some cultural insight at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Anthea Polson Art. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brisbane: Pelican Feeding (in Labrador), Surfers Paradise Beach (in Surfers Paradise) and Sea World Theme Park (in Main Beach). There's much more to do: stroll around South Bank Parklands, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, find something for the whole family at Warner Bros. Movie World, and kick back and relax at Mooloolaba Beach.
