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.

The adventure continues: walk around South Bank Parklands, take in nature's colorful creations at City Botanic Gardens, identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, and take some stellar pictures from Mount Coot-Tha Summit Lookout.
