Brisbane

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.
Popular historic sites such as Old St Stephen's Catholic Church (Pugin Chapel) and Victoria Bridge Abutment are in your itinerary. Let the collections at Queensland Maritime Museum and State Library Of Queensland capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Brisbane side-trips: Daisy Hill Conservation Park (in Daisy Hill), Australian Kayaking Adventures (in Surfers Paradise) and Tugun Beach (in Tugun). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. John's Anglican Cathedral, look for gifts at Noosa Chocolate Factory, walk around Kangaroo Point Cliffs Park, and take in the pleasant sights at New Farm River Walk.
