Brisbane, the sophisticated capital city of Queensland on Australia’s east coast, is one of the world's fastest developing cities. With its harmonious mix of elegant colonial sandstone structures and modern glass skyscrapers, this friendly, welcoming city has a laid back, vibrant atmosphere. 

Art and outdoor adventure are always on the agenda; the South Bank's cultural institutions and restaurants combine with riverside gardens and a lagoon. [ReadMoreMob] Take the paddle steamer or ferry down the Brisbane River, or bike ride through the City Botanic Gardens. A day trip to Moreton Island, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast hinterland are regular favourites, while, for the more adventurous, Kangaroo Point cliffs offer abseiling.

A more sedate day can be spent exploring the city’s numerous walks, reserves and barbecue hotspots. Australia Zoo – owned by the family of the late Steve Irwin – and the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, are home to various native Australian animals.
