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 Burleigh Heads Beach. Popular historic sites such as Chenrezig Institute and Fingal Head Lighthouse are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Pacific Fair Shopping Centre (in Broadbeach), Robina Town Shopping Centre (in Robina) and Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre (in Biggera Waters). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, stop by Maleny Cheese, browse the different shops at Maroochydore, Sunshine Plaza, and get great views at Mount Coot-tha Lookout.
