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.
On the 18th (Mon), identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Dicky Beach. Here are some ideas for day two: enjoy the sand and surf at Moffat Beach, explore the world behind art at Gallery of Modern Art, then see the interesting displays at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Nepalese Pagoda.
