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.

There's still lots to do: have fun at South Bank Parklands, look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, admire the natural beauty at City Botanic Gardens, and get great views at Mount Coot-tha Lookout.
