Brisbane

Australia's New World City

Queensland’s biggest town and state capital, Brisbane has an attractive, manicured image based around its riverside aesthetic as well as the contrast between its high-rise center and extensive urban greenery.
Get some cultural insight at Opal Museum and Caboolture Historical Village. Visiting Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Kondalilla Falls will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Brisbane: Bribie Island Seaside Museum (in Bongaree), Mooloolaba (Scuba & Snorkeling, HMAS Brisbane, &more) and Maleny (Gardners Falls & Maleny Mountain Wines). Spend the 10th (Fri) exploring nature at D'Aguilar National Park. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Marcoola Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Dicky Beach, explore the striking landscape of Glass House Mountains National Park, and identify plant and animal life at Buderim Forest Park.

To find photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Brisbane travel site.

Cape Town, South Africa to Brisbane is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from South Africa Standard Time to Australian Eastern Standard Time, which is usually an 8 hour difference. Traveling from Cape Town in March, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Brisbane, with lows around 23°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Wed) so you can go by car to Gold Coast.

Gold Coast

Gold Coast ©
A city of towering skyscrapers, sandy beaches, and tree-lined streets, Gold Coast has an unpretentious air complemented by a citywide focus on sports and the arts.
Escape the urban bustle at Natural Bridge and Kirra Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Springbrook National Park and Kurrawa Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Byron Bay (Stand-Up Paddleboarding, Belongil Beach, &more), Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah) and Lennox Head (Pat Morton Lookout & Lennox Head Beach). There's lots more to do: get interesting insight from Watersports Guru, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Lamington National Park, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.

You can plan Gold Coast trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Getting from Brisbane to Gold Coast by car takes about an hour. Other options: take a train; or take a bus. In April, daytime highs in Gold Coast are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Brisbane.
