Brisbane

— 4 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.
Popular historic sites such as Old St Stephen's Catholic Church (Pugin Chapel) and St. John's Anglican Cathedral are in your itinerary. Let the collections at Queensland Maritime Museum and State Library Of Queensland capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Brisbane side-trips: Australian Kayaking Adventures (in Surfers Paradise), Daisy Hill Conservation Park (in Daisy Hill) and Tugun Beach (in Tugun). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Albert Street Uniting Church, explore the striking landscape of Burleigh Head National Park, snap pictures at Victoria Bridge Abutment, and take a stroll through West End.

For where to stay, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Brisbane itinerary planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from your home destination to Brisbane. Expect a daytime high around 28°C in September, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Longreach.
