Located almost halfway between the Gold and Sunshine coast regions, Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and Australia’s third-largest city. Visitors can stroll through bamboo groves at an urban botanic garden, gorge on local delicacies amid live music at Eat Street Northshore, learn about the country’s military history at the Anzac Square War Memorial and enjoy a cruise down the Brisbane River. Wildlife lovers should make time to get to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, where you can not only cuddle one of the 130 koalas, but hand-feed kangaroos and observe a pair of platypuses. There’s no shortage of scenic vantage points in this port, whether it’s the observation deck on Mount Coot-tha, an enclosed capsule on the Wheel of Brisbane or along the stairs that lead you up the famous Story Bridge. If you’re feeling adventurous, take in the panoramas from atop Kangaroo Point, then rappel down the side of its cliffs.
