Brisbane

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Kings Beach and Distillery Tours. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Kirra Beach and Tugun Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brisbane: Caloundra Coastal Walk (in Kings Beach), Moffat Beach (in Caloundra) and Currumbin Beach (in Gold Coast). Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Greenmount Beach, stroll around Rocks Riverside Park, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and kick back and relax at Shorncliffe Beach.

For more things to do and more tourist information, refer to the Brisbane trip itinerary maker website.

Airlie Beach

Gateway to the Whitsundays

Very much a town with an emphasis on the tropical lifestyle, Airlie Beach offers exotic surroundings with palm trees and charming, sandy beaches.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Catseye Beach and Coral Sea Marina. Visit Horseshoe Bay and Town Beach for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from Airlie Beach: Jetryder (in Hamilton Island), Mackay (Mackay Aqua Park & Bluewater Lagoon) and Bowen (Horseshoe Bay Rotary Lookout & Grays Bay). And it doesn't end there: indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, kick back and relax at Boathaven Beach, view the masterpieces at Art Whitsunday Gallery & Shop, and cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience.
