Brisbane

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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Suncorp Stadium and Old St Stephen's Catholic Church (Pugin Chapel). Change things up with a short trip to Bee Gees Way in Redcliffe (about 46 minutes away). Spend the 8th (Mon) with some fine spirits on a distillery tour. There's lots more to do: ponder the world of politics at City Hall, get lost in a book at State Library Of Queensland, take in the pleasant sights at New Farm River Walk, and examine the collection at Museum of Brisbane.
