Home to some of Queensland's most recognisable landmarks, Brisbane brings an electric sense of creativity and excitement to the Sunshine State. Experience the arts by ducking into the museums and galleries, satisfy your fashion cravings at the boutique and designer shops, and dine on delicious gourmet food and wine. You'll have plenty of fun on a luxury holiday in Brisbane.
Basking in year-round subtropical weather, Brisbane is the capital of the Sunshine State of Queensland. Here, you'll come across some of the most celebrated restaurants in the entire country, alongside a dynamic music and art scene. The best place to start exploring this city is in the South Bank. This includes key cultural sites like the Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art, and the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, as well as excellent restaurants, a man-made beach, a sub-tropical rainforest, markets, popular retail stores, parks and a riverside promenade.
Then see the rest of the city with an adrenalin-pumping Story Bridge climb, where you can look Brisbane from 80m above the river, or stick to sea level and take a Brisbane River boat cruise. Then stroll through the glorious Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mount Coot-tha, where you can see panoramic views of the city and the nearby hinterland, as well as some of Australia's best flora. Of course, if you fancy a little time by the beach, the charms of the Gold Coast are less than an hour away, and this is one of Australia's top leisure destinations. Golf, spa, shop, whale-watch, sunbathe, surf and swim all along its golden shores during the day, and then pop to the city for cocktails and fine-dining in the evening.
