Visiting Friends and Family in Brisbane

9 Day Suggested Itinerary | Glasshouse Mountains and Nature Coast

The city of Brisbane lies in southern Queensland, and with year-round sunshine, it's a great place to base yourself when visiting friends and family living in the surrounding area. Brisbane is ideally located for exploring the nearby national parks of the Gold Coast hinterland, the beautiful sandy stretches of the Sunshine Coast and spotting native wildlife. 

After a few nights in the city, drive north into the spectacular Glasshouse Mountains, where all the family can enjoy a day at Australia Zoo. Make sure you take time to watch the wildlife shows, with croc feeding and bird displays, before a stay in the Glasshouse Mountains.

Your next port of call is the Sunshine Coast. A favourite holiday destination for the locals, this coastline offers fabulous beaches for surfing, swimming or just relaxing, alongside laidback al fresco dining on the seafront. The last part of your adventure is Tangalooma Island Resort where the wild dolphins swim into the shallows each evening and there's a unique opportunity to hand feed them - an experience you won't forget! 

From £639 per person

Please note: Price includes 2 nights at Mercure Hotel Brisbane, 2 nights in the Glasshouse Mountains with Australia Zoo entry, 2 nights at Rumba Beach Resort on the Sunshine Coast and 2 nights at Tangalooma Island Resort on Moreton Island, plus 7 days Group B car hire.
