Brisbane
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.
Take a break from the city and head to Surfer's Paradise Beach and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Relax by the water at Burleigh Heads Beach and Mooloolaba Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise (in Surfers Paradise), Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah) and Art on Cairncross (in Maleny). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, admire the masterpieces at GOMA, explore the activities along The Brisbane River, and take in the exciting artwork at Atrium Gallery at Buderim Craft Cottage.
