Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Brisbane is the biggest city in Queensland, Australia and a gateway to the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, both beautiful beaches and real surfing heavens. The Brisbane central business district stands on the original European settlement and is situated inside a bend of the Brisbane River.
The Gallery of Modern Art is a great visit while being in the city. Brisbane is an arty city, maybe not as much as Melbourne, but you can still encounter art or interesting architecture all around the central business district.
