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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Brisbane: Sea World Theme Park (in Main Beach), Warner Bros. Movie World (in Oxenford) and Surfers Paradise (SkyPoint Observation Deck & Surfer's Paradise Beach). There's still lots to do: have some family-friendly fun at South Bank Parklands, admire the natural beauty at City Botanic Gardens, explore the world behind art at GOMA, and contemplate the waterfront views at The Brisbane River.

For maps, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Brisbane travel planner .
