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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Sea World Theme Park and Moffat Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Warner Bros. Movie World in Oxenford (about 1h 20 min away). There's still lots to do: let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands, look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-tha Lookout, and explore the activities along The Brisbane River.

For other places to visit, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Brisbane route planning site .

Traveling by flight from Sydney to Brisbane takes 4 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and bus; or drive. In December, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 23°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
