The state capital of Queensland is a laid back sub-tropical city that makes the most of it's great weather and riverside location to provide an enjoyable and relaxing city break.
Whilst not being quite on the scale of Sydney or Melbourne, Brisbane has more than enough things to do to keep you happily occupied for a few days, especially if you are willing to go a little way out of the city to explore Moreton Bay, the national parks, the Gold Coast or the Sunshine Coast, all of which are an hour or so away.
Take a look at the list below and see what attractions in Brisbane stand out for you.
