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 find plenty of places to visit near Brisbane: Boat Tours & Water Sports (in Mooloolaba), Yanisa Therapy Beauty & Massage (in Upper Coomera) and Maleny (Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World & McCarthy's Lookout). There's still lots to do: stroll around South Bank Parklands, take in nature's colorful creations at Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt. Coot-tha, look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, and admire the masterpieces at Gallery of Modern Art.

To see photos, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Brisbane route builder.

Located right in the center of Australia, the national park boasts perhaps the country's most iconic natural symbol and a sacred place for the region's indigenous people--as well as Kata Tjuta, a collection of 36 red rocks forming an equally distinctive sight.
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is known for nature, museums, and outdoors. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: don't miss a visit to Uluru, get engrossed in the history at Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, go for a walk through Mala Walk, and take in the dramatic natural features at Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga.
