Brisbane

The last and final stop on the Pacific Coastal Highway, and one that will charm you. Everyone loves an underdog, and that is what Brisbane has been for so long. However, it has a thriving arts scene, boosted by GOMA on the Southbank and reflected by numerous independent galleries including Bird off Victoria Street and Cork & Chroma in the West End.

Drinking and dancing happens over in Fortitude Valley, although for something away from the hostels and a bit more high end you might want to check out the walk from Customs House to the City Gardens, which overlooks Kangaroo Point and is a wooden promenade full of seafood diners and wine bars. You started with one, so you may as well finish with one, and the Story Bridge Adventure Climb is also on offer. A more open structure, and much quieter climb, it is a totally different experience. The meandering river that knots its way through Brisbane, lit up at night by a flurry of tall buildings punctuating the night sky, is one of those mental photographs that you will take with you.

Stay at the chic and sleek Diamant Hotel for some stylish shut-eye in a quiet hotel filled with black and silver geometric patterns. If by that point you've run out of cash but still want to learn, tap up Brisbane Greeters who offer guided tours by passionate people around the city and its precincts, and will tailor a tour to suit your needs.And if after all of that you want to keep going, well, The Sunshine Coast awaits...
