Brisbane

Australia's New World City

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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Kings Beach and Distillery Tours. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Kirra Beach and Currumbin Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brisbane: Caloundra Coastal Walk (in Kings Beach), Chris Cunningham Park (in Tweed Heads) and Moffat Beach (in Caloundra). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Greenmount Beach, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, take in the views from Story Bridge, and view the masterpieces at State Library Of Queensland.

To find where to stay, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, use the Brisbane trip maker tool.
