Brisbane

Australia’s City of Sundays

Be certain to take a flight to Brisbane, the ‘City of Sundays’, if you are looking for an easy-going destination. The South Bank is where you will spend most of your time. Find the city's cultural heritage here, at the Queensland Museum and the Queensland Art Gallery, or swim in Australia's only man-made beach and lagoon and shop at the South Bank Art and Craft Markets.

For more shopping, head over to the Queens Street Mall and the Sunday Discovery Market. Sports enthusiasts will definitely enjoy the cricket at the Gabba sports ground and rugby at the Ballymore. For true adrenaline seekers, climb the 3,517-foot long Story Bridge right to the top. Don't forget to hug a cuddly koala at the Lone Pine Koala and discover exotic marine life at Sea World. For a more serious back to nature adventure, go to the botanical garden near Brisbane's River Stage.
