    There is sure to be something for everyone in Brisbane. Start your tropical adventure with a visit to Kangaroo Point. This peak just above the Brisbane River provides a magnificent view for you and your family to enjoy whilst having a picnic, or partaking in activities such as rock climbing, abseiling and kayaking. If you are after a cultural experience, try out the Brisbane Powerhouse, a former power station that currently operates as a venue for performing arts, visual art, festivals, dining and community events. For fresh Australian produce, a trip to the Northside Flower Market for fresh flowers or the Jan Powers Farmers Markets for fresh fruit, vegetables and meat is essential.

    For thrill seekers who want something a little more extreme, take a day trip to the Gold Coast where you can experience three of Australia's largest theme parks: Warner Bros. Movie World, Dreamworld and Wet 'n' Wild. If you're looking for some time to unwind whilst at the Gold Coast check out the famous Surfers Paradise Beach or grab a bite to eat at Cavil Avenue whilst browsing the novelty shops. At night time, Cavil Avenue is lit up with nightclubs, restaurants, bars, pubs and the Melbas on the Park Casino. If you head north towards the Broadwater Marina you will reach the fish markets where you can find the local specialty: mud crabs.

    If you travel about an hour up the Sunshine Coast you will reach Beerwah, the home of Australia Zoo which was founded by Australian icon the late Steve Irwin. The zoo is a great family day out, offering visitors the opportunity to hold baby saltwater crocodiles and walk alongside kangaroos. Continue up the coast to reach Eumundi. There are markets held here on Wednesday and Saturday where visitors and locals alike can shop for an array of products including health, beauty, fashion, jewellery, food, garden and arts. The final destination worth visiting on the Sunshine Coast is Noosa which combines beautiful beaches with a national park. During your stay in Noosa go scuba diving, fishing, swimming, boating, whale watching and surfing or enjoy a scenic bush walk in this coastal paradise you are sure to never want to leave.
