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.
Bring the kids along to Mount Coot-tha Lookout and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brisbane: Mooloolaba (SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast, Mooloolaba Beach, &more), Caloundra (MaisyMoo, Kings Beach, &more) and Australia Zoo (in Beerwah). There's lots more to do: stroll around South Bank Parklands, find something for the whole family at Aussie World, take an in-depth tour of Nambour & District Historical Museum Assoc. Inc., and admire the natural beauty at City Botanic Gardens.

Plan my day in Brisbane using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major aiports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in June, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) early enough to drive to Gold Coast.

A city of towering skyscrapers, sandy beaches, and tree-lined streets, Gold Coast has an unpretentious air complemented by a citywide focus on sports and the arts.
