The capital city of sunny Queensland is Brisbane, the third most populated city in Australia. Situated along the banks of the Brisbane River, this interesting city is a gateway to some amazing Queensland experiences.

You can take in panoramic views of the city on board the Wheel of Brisbane and from Mount Coot-tha, the highest peak in Brisbane. You can also get well acquainted with native Aussie wildlife at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the world’s first and largest koala sanctuary.

Just north of Brisbane is the Sunshine Coast, home to a magnificent coastline and beautifully lush hinterland. Nearby, you can visit the world famous Australia Zoo, an award-winning zoo that remains a living legacy of the late Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. The Sunshine Coast is also home to several natural attractions such as the sunny resort town of Mooloolaba, the beautiful unspoilt beaches of Caloundra and the intriguing Glass House Mountains.

Further north off the coast of Hervey Bay is Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island. This World Heritage Listed sand bar is a natural paradise, home to over 100 freshwater lakes and among the cleanest lakes in the world. Here you can visit the gorgeous 75 Mile Beach; a national highway, aircraft landing strip and home of the Maheno Shipwreck.

A short drive south of Brisbane will see you at the sunny Gold Coast, renowned for its golden beaches, theme parks, ‘Surfers Paradise’ and the World Heritage Listed Lamington National Park.
