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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Sea World Theme Park (in Main Beach) and Warner Bros. Movie World (in Oxenford). Next up on the itinerary: walk around South Bank Parklands, get great views at Mount Coot-tha Lookout, take in nature's colorful creations at Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt. Coot-tha, and get in on the family fun at Wheel of Brisbane.
