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.
Relax by the water at Burleigh Head National Park and Shorncliffe Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Scuba & Snorkeling and Natural Bridge. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brisbane: Kurrawa Beach (in Broadbeach), Maleny (Maleny Dairies & Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve) and Caloundra (Kings Beach & Bulcock Beach). There's still lots to do: take in the waterfront at Eagle Street Pier and take in the views from Story Bridge.

For where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Brisbane travel itinerary planner.
