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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Surfers Paradise Beach and Mooloolaba Beach. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and Harbour Town Premium Outlets. Get out of town with these interesting Brisbane side-trips: Main Beach (Sea World Theme Park, Marina Mirage, &more), The Oasis Shopping Centre (in Broadbeach) and Art on Cairncross (in Maleny). Pack the 1st (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Dreamworld. The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Roma Street Parkland, browse the different shops at Maroochydore, Sunshine Plaza, explore the activities along The Brisbane River, and stop by Opals Down Under.

There's much more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at Bomana War Cemetery, get to know the resident critters at Adventure Park PNG, admire the sheer force of Rouna Falls, and get a sense of history and politics at National Parliament House.
