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 Brisbane with an excursion to Sea World Theme Park in Main Beach--about 1h 30 min away. There's much more to do: let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands, get great views at Mount Coot-tha Lookout, look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, and make a trip to Wheel of Brisbane.

For photos, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Brisbane vacation builder app .

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Brisbane. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in August, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat) to allow time to travel to Townsville.

Tucked snugly beneath a steep, craggy mount--known as Castle Hill--the vibrant city of Townsville is as picturesque as its backdrop.
Start off your visit on the 4th (Sun): stroll through Castle Hill, head off the coast to Museum of Tropical Queensland, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at The Strand.

To find traveler tips, maps, ratings, and tourist information, use the Townsville driving holiday tool .

Getting from Brisbane to Townsville by flight takes about 4.5 hours. Other options: take a train; or drive. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Brisbane in August, with highs in Townsville at 30°C and lows at 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
