Someone told me there's 2 girls for every guy in Brisbane and I it's prevelant here I'd say. Walking around the city, I couldn't believe how many women there were. Fashion seems very important, especially for the young crowd, they really seem to go all out.
If you are around in October, check out the Indy, Champ cars, and V8 super cars race that goes through the city, right next to the beach. Also, the Australia Zoo was a great experience. They've got the Roo Heaven where you are in the "wild" with kangaroos, you can walk right up to them and pet them or whatever. There's also a Koala place like this. They've got some great shows, showing off their selection of Bengal tigers (only 2000 left in the world I think), Crocidiles, snakes, birds, etc. Great experience!
The sand at the beaches squeaks! The sand is so fine that it makes noise when you step on it.
Take a trip to O'Reilly's Rainforest Guesthouse, and take the short walk to look closely at a natural rainforest canopy. There is a treetop walk.
After the walk you can stop at the restaurant for refreshments etc.

Chilled out and relaxed. No high rise buildings.
