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 Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Burleigh Heads Beach. Get some historical perspective at Chenrezig Institute and Caloundra Lighthouses. Change things up with these side-trips from Brisbane: Main Beach (Anthea Polson Art & Sea World Theme Park), Sunshine Castle (in Bli Bli) and Surfers Paradise (Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise, Surfers Paradise Beach, & more). Spend the 28th (Thu) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. Spend the 6th (Sat) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, enjoy the sand and surf at Mooloolaba Beach, admire the masterpieces at Queensland Art Gallery, and enjoy some diversion at South Bank Parklands.
