Brisbane

— 2 nights

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.
Brisbane is known for parks, wildlife, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: walk around South Bank Parklands, take in nature's colorful creations at City Botanic Gardens, get great views at Mount Coot-Tha Summit Lookout, and look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.
