Step on down to Rocklea town – one of Brisbane’s most highly sought after industrial and residential districts. Only a 9-kilometres drive from downtown Brisbane, Rocklea is the perfect base for seeing the sights in and around Brisbane. An alluring blend of city sophistication and the great outdoors make Rocklea a haven for ardent tourists seeking respite from the hustle and bustle of Brisbane’s vibrant city centre.
Rocklea is home to the legendary Brisbane Markets, a staple on any Brissie local’s culinary calendar and only a 10-minute drive to Brisbane’s big city lights. Enveloped in the west by the stately Oxley Creek, the neighbourhood derives its name from the iconic Rocky Water Holes that dominate the region.

Brisbane’s eternal bounty extends deep into the heart of Southeast Queensland. An enchanting city swathed in endless sunshine, marvel at the majesty of Queensland’s awe-inspiring capital. Set on the banks of the mighty Brisbane River, the city unlocks a wealth of opportunities to fuel your wanderlust.
Ride the M5 into the city, consuming the sights bestowed to the land and gather your bearings from atop Brisbane’s iconic Story Bridge. Unparalleled vistas accompany Brisbane’s striking antique bridge, a symphony of lights illuminating the city. Reach for the stars on your way to the top, one of only 3 bridge climbs across the world.
Ever wanted to pat a koala? Well, now you can at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary – a refuge for stricken animals. Open rain, hail, or shine, meet the cuddly crew and all their friends at the world’s first Koala sanctuary, only a short drive from Rocklea.
Evade the steady encore of Brisbane’s bustling city streets at one of several urban leafy hideaways. Head back to where it all began at Brisbane’s historic Newstead Park, housing Brisbane’s oldest preserved abode overlooking the beautiful Brisbane River; explore the soaring palms and ornamental ponds that help breathe life into the city’s spellbinding Botanic Gardens; or be bedazzled by the sprawling lawns and spacious gardens of one of Brisbane’s number 1 picnic spots – Roma Street Parkland.
For an enriching cultural experience unlike no other, drop past Brisbane’s heritage-listed cultural precinct right in the centre of town. The cultural precinct is the nucleus of Queensland’s extensive art portfolio and houses some of the world’s most elaborate displays, interactive exhibits and prized indigenous artworks. The collection precinct comprises the Queensland Art Gallery (QAGOMA), Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Queensland Museum and Science centre and the State Library of Queensland.

After seeing the sights in and around Brisbane, leave Rocklea in your rear view on the road to greener pastures. Only an hour’s drive south in your rental car is the aquamarine waters of Queensland’s golden child – the Gold Coast. Lust in luxury at the opulence of Surfers Paradise’s alluring décor and seaside splendour that continues to capture the hearts of many a traveller.
Recline in the shallows at Surfers Paradise Beach, ribbons of golden sand taming the shores. ‘Where the city meets the sea’ in this inner-city paradise, as soaring high rises infiltrate the coast. Soak up the million-dollar views along Gold Coast’s vibrant Oceanway stretching 36 kilometres from The Split to Point Danger. Or dine in style along the foreshore at one of the Esplanade’s glamorous bars or restaurants.
As the theme park capital of Australia, Gold Coast plays host to 5 blockbuster adventure parks – contrasting worlds with an uncanny resemblance. Brave the Triple Vortex at Whitewater World, plunge 7 stories down on the Kaboom at Wet n Wild, meet your favourite superheroes at Warner Brothers Movie World, catch the dolphins in action at Sea World, or roll everything into one at Dreamworld – Australia’s largest theme park.
For the best views in town, drop past the SkyPoint Observation Deck at the top of Australia’s tallest building – Q1.

Absorb the extravagant views from atop the deck, enjoy a delicious meal at the SkyPoint Bistro or make the climb to Eagles Nest, 270m high at Australia’s urban ceiling.
