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.
Visiting Surfer's Paradise Beach and Kings Beach will get you outdoors. Relax by the water at Burleigh Heads Beach and Mooloolaba Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Brisbane side-trips: Surfers Paradise (SkyPoint Observation Deck, Infinity Attraction, & more), Buderim (Atrium Gallery at Buderim Craft Cottage & Buderim Forest Park) and Main Beach (Marina Mirage & Sea World Theme Park). Pack the 17th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Dreamworld. Spend the 22nd (Tue) exploring nature at Kondalilla National Park. The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, enjoy the sand and surf at Dicky Beach, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, and let little ones run wild at South Bank Parklands.
