Watch out Sydney and Melbourne, Brisbane has dusted off its country town image to reveal a sophisticated city that doesn't sacrifice that trademark ‘too easy’ Queensland charm. Serving as the state’s premier shopping destination, Brisbane boasts a range of flagship stores and boutiques to suit all tastes and price ranges. For something unique visit the markets at Eagle Street Pier and South Bank. If shopping isn't your thing spend your days cycling along the Brisbane River, exploring South Bank parklands, taking a dip in South Bank Lagoon and making the most of year-round al fresco dining. At night try Fortitude Valley for dusk till dawn partying, South Bank for something a little more up market and the West End for quirky boutique venues. Escape the crowds of Sydney and Melbourne and head to sunny Brisbane for big city action at a holiday pace.
