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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Australia Zoo (in Beerwah) and Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World (in Maleny). There's lots more to do: walk around South Bank Parklands, take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-tha Lookout, explore the world behind art at Gallery of Modern Art, and admire the natural beauty at Roma Street Parkland.

To find reviews, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read our Brisbane tour itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. In October, daytime highs in Brisbane are 77°F, while nighttime lows are 61°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
