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.

There's much more to do: walk around South Bank Parklands, take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-Tha Summit Lookout, stroll through Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, and take in nature's colorful creations at City Botanic Gardens.
