Cruising to Brisbane

Of all Australia's states, Queensland is perhaps the most iconic, being home to attractions like the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsundays Islands and a number of other world-famous highlights. However, while the region may be known for its natural attractions, it also offers some fantastic man-made destinations, with the state capital, Brisbane, being a fantastic place to start your exploration of Queensland's culture.

Known as one of Australia's most vibrant and progressive cities, Brisbane has a thriving arts scene which can be experienced by taking a trip to the Queensland Cultural Centre. Here, you'll find a range of wonderful exhibition centres such as the Queensland Museum, the Queensland Art Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) - with the latter of these being among the most prestigious institutions of its kind in the world.

Brisbane is also a great base for exploring Australia's wildlife, and the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is the perfect place for animal lovers to head to while in town. If cuddly marsupials aren't enough for you though, then you'll find plenty more interesting creatures at the Alma Park Zoo, while those who want to gain a greater appreciation of the landscape that surrounds the city can do so by climbing the stunning Mount Coot-tha.
