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.

Kids will enjoy Old St Stephen's Catholic Church (Pugin Chapel) and Noosa Chocolate Factory. Next up on the itinerary: go for a walk through New Farm River Walk.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Brisbane is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Brisbane, you'll lose 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in January: highs in Brisbane hover around 34°C, while lows dip to 25°C. You'll have a few hours on the 31st (Fri) to wrap things up before traveling 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.
