Nestling in the elbow of the enthralling Brisbane River, the capital of Queensland offers a taste of the good life to all its visitors. The city’s cultural precinct is home to the fascinating Queensland Museum and Sciencentre, which host incredible interactive exhibitions, as well as the impressive Queensland Museum of Modern Art. Don’t miss a visit to Mount Coo-tha, with its sprawling gorgeous Brisbane Botanic Gardens and astounding views. The Scenic Rim Region, just outside the city centre, is another must-see for nature lovers and photographers, as is the Lamington National Park, and O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat. After your day’s excursion, kick back at one of the many vibrant bars or restaurants and take in the beats provided by local musicians.
