Brisbane
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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Kondalilla Falls and Dolphin & Whale Watching. We've included these beaches for you: Bulcock Beach and Shorncliffe Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Flame Hill Vineyard (in Montville), Sunshine Coast Brewery (in Kunda Park) and Gardners Falls (in Maleny). And it doesn't end there: go for a walk through New Farm River Walk, tour the pleasant surroundings at Dicky Beach, wander the streets of West End, and enjoy the sand and surf at Maroochydore Beach.

For traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Brisbane road trip planner.

There's lots more to do: take a stroll through North Terrace, stop by Haigh's Chocolates Beehive Corner, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and explore the striking landscape of Belair National Park.
