Brisbane & Queensland
Moreton Bay and its islands provide water sports, sailing and seaside suburbs. The Pacific Highway leads south to the Gold Coast. North is the picturesque countryside of the Glasshouse Mountains. Bribie Island offers the first surf beach to the north. The Sunshine Coast towns and hinterland are popular holiday spots.
Further north of Brisbane are the Whitsunday Islands, the Great Barrier Reef, and tropical North Queensland – all popular holiday destinations.
Travelling west of Brisbane, past Ipswich, you soon climb the Great Dividing Range to Toowoomba and the rich plains of the Darling Downs.
