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.
Head to Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Pacific Fair Shopping Centrefor plenty of shopping. Relax by the water at Surfers Paradise Beach and Burleigh Heads Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Brisbane side-trips: Mooloolaba Beach (in Mooloolaba), Queensland Air Museum (in Caloundra) and Anthea Polson Art (in Main Beach). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, see the interesting displays at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, take in nature's colorful creations at City Botanic Gardens, and buy something for everyone on your list at Southport Park Shopping Centre.
