1st trip to Australia "Brisbane"

I've resently been trying to plan my 2 week vacation somewhere exciting and different. Ive been looking into Bangkok, Thailand , but resently the topic of Australia came up (more so Brisbane). Great stories and im trying to decide if its wearth changing my destination.

Background:

Traveling alone, 29 year old black male, from New York City, military, ive been in Afghanistan for the most of 2013 (zero drinks, women, fun).

In other words, i want to have the time of my life....

Any recommendations would be great: areas to look at, dance clubs and etc for a guy with any wing men.

As someone from Brisbane, I'd go to Sydney if you're after that!

I reckon Thailand might suit your needs better

We just got back from Australia. Brisbane had a very sleek, modern, almost Asian feel, to us.

In your situation, I think Sydney would make more sense as well.
