After seeing the sights of Sydney, the first stop in your journey north is Brisbane, the capital of Queensland that has emerged alongside Sydney and Melbourne as one of the country’s most exciting cities. Renee’s itinerary leaves time to visit some of Brisbane’s museums and galleries—ones you might want to put on your list are the comprehensive Queensland Art Gallery and the always thought-provoking Gallery of Contemporary Art. Much of the appeal of Brisbane, however, is its easy-going life style and that’s perhaps best experienced in South Bank with its 42 acres of riverfront parkland and dozens of bars and restaurants.
