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 Surfer's Paradise Beach. There's much more to do: let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands, get lost in a book at State Library Of Queensland, kick back and relax at Dicky Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Moffat Beach.
