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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Surfer's Paradise Beach and Moffat Beach. When in Brisbane, make a side trip to see Sea World Theme Park in Main Beach, approximately 1h 35 min away. And it doesn't end there: let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands, admire the natural beauty at Roma Street Parkland, get great views at Mount Coot-tha Lookout, and admire the striking features of Customs House.

For where to stay, reviews, photos, and tourist information, go to the Brisbane road trip planning tool .
