Brisbane — 2 nights

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.
Kick off your visit on the 7th (Fri): admire the natural beauty at City Botanic Gardens.

To see maps, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Brisbane online travel route planner.

Gold Coast — 3 nights

A city of towering skyscrapers, sandy beaches, and tree-lined streets, Gold Coast has an unpretentious air complemented by a citywide focus on sports and the arts.
Change things up with a short trip to Chocolates on Gallery Walk in Eagle Heights (about 38 minutes away). Spend the 11th (Tue) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Warner Bros. Movie World, buy something for everyone on your list at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, head outdoors with Qld Luxury Car Rentals, and catch some excitement at Infinity Attraction.
