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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Surfer's Paradise Beach and Burleigh Head National Park. Get in touch with nature at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Moffat Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Caloundra (Kings Beach & Bulcock Beach), Marina Mirage (in Main Beach) and Tanawha Valley Golf & Tennis (in Tanawha). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Heads Beach, stroll through Coolangatta Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Roma Street Parkland, and take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-tha Lookout.

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.

Dedicate the 13th (Thu) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck 88, kick back and relax at Half Moon Bay, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Victoria.
