Australia's New World City

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 discover tucked-away gems like Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve and Scuba & Snorkeling. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Old St Stephen's Catholic Church (Pugin Chapel) and Newstead House. Venture out of the city with trips to Lake Hugh Muntz (in Mermaid Waters), Fingal Head (Cook Island Aquatic Reserve & Fingal Head Lighthouse) and Saint Augustine's Catholic Church (in Coolangatta). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, tour the pleasant surroundings at Burleigh Head National Park, explore the striking landscape at Mount Coolum, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Ngungun.
