"Tropical" Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, has the highest population growth rate in the country as a result of its incredible dynamism. Visit its city centre and the banks of the Brisbane River, as well as the Gold Coast and Surfers Paradise to the south, on the Pacific Hwy: the Australian "Miami Beach", which extends over 25 miles of beach. Make the most of the panorama from the Mt Coot-tha viewpoint. Mingle with the dolphins and go sand sledging on the steepest dunes of the southern hemisphere at Wild Dolphin Resort. Visit the Gold Coast theme parks: Movie World, Warner Bros or Sea World.
