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.
Queensland Museum & Sciencentre and Queensland Art Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Maroochydore Beach and Kirra Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Brisbane side-trips: Natural Bridge (in Springbrook), Bulcock Beach (in Caloundra) and Spas & Wellness (in Maroochydore). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Burleigh Head National Park, take in the views from Story Bridge, and take a stroll through West End.
