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.
Start off your visit on the 27th (Sun): admire the natural beauty at Roma Street Parkland and then stroll around South Bank Parklands. Keep things going the next day: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, then get great views at Mount Coot-tha Lookout, and then get in on the family fun at Wheel of Brisbane.
