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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Sea World Theme Park and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Explore Brisbane's surroundings by going to Dreamworld (in Coomera), Surfers Paradise (Infinity Attraction, SkyPoint Observation Deck, & more) and Warner Bros. Movie World (in Oxenford). There's lots more to do: get your game on at South Bank Parklands, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach, and stroll through Mooloolaba Beach.
