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 Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve and Point Cartwright. You'll explore and learn at Opal Museum and Queensland Art Gallery. Get out of town with these interesting Brisbane side-trips: Bulcock Beach (in Caloundra), Kondalilla Falls (in Montville) and Buderim Forest Park (in Buderim). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Old St Stephen's Catholic Church (Pugin Chapel), and steep yourself in history at Boggo Road Gaol (Jail).
