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 Mooloolaba Beach and Bulcock Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Kings Beach and Maroochydore Beach. Explore Brisbane's surroundings by going to Buderim Forest Park (in Buderim) and Woorim Beach (in Woorim). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the waterfront views at The Brisbane River and enjoy the sand and surf at Moffat Beach.

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Step out of the city life by going to Diamond Head State Monument and Koko Crater Railway Trail. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lanikai Beach and Sharks Cove. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Shark Diving (in Haleiwa) and Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and take in the dramatic natural features at Halona Blowhole.

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Napili Beach. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Wailea Beach and Wailea Beach Path. Change things up with these side-trips from Lahaina: Hale Ho'ike'ike at the Bailey House (in Wailuku), Kihei (Stand-Up Paddleboarding & Kalepolepo Beach Park) and Ho'okipa Beach Park (in Paia). There's still lots to do: kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, enjoy the sand and surf at Kapalua Beach, and pause for some photo ops at Lahaina Jodo Mission.
