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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Brisbane: Warner Bros. Movie World (in Oxenford), Pelican Feeding (in Labrador) and Sea World Theme Park (in Main Beach). There's still lots to do: stroll around South Bank Parklands, look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, take in nature's colorful creations at Roma Street Parkland, and examine the collection at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre.
