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.
You'll get in some beach time at Surfer's Paradise Beach and Mooloolaba Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Kings Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Brisbane: Australia Zoo (in Beerwah), MaisyMoo (in Caloundra) and McCarthy's Lookout (in Maleny). Spend the 28th (Fri) with some fine spirits on a distillery tour. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Heads Beach, admire the natural beauty at City Botanic Gardens, tour the pleasant surroundings at Moffat Beach, and contemplate the waterfront views at The Brisbane River.

To find photos, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, read Brisbane trip itinerary planning website .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
