Top attractions in Brisbane
Brisbane is one of the larger cities in Australia and the capital of the state of Queensland. From furry animals to historic homes, there are a variety of things to see in this popular city.
On your first day down under, consider familiarizing yourself with the city on a bike tour. Explore the famous botanic gardens, the iconic Brisbane River and learn about the city's history, all while enjoying a relaxing bicycle ride.
While vacationing in Brisbane, the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, located on the river, is a must-see spot. Learn all about the cuddly creatures and, if you'd like, pay to hold or feed one and get a picture.
After playing with one of Australia's most familiar animals, consider a coach tour. Visit the historic Windmill, Brisbane's oldest building, and cross Story Bridge, before stopping at Newstead House gardens, Brisbane's oldest residence.
Before you leave this magical city, take a ride in the towering Wheel of Brisbane. This oversize ferris wheel gives the best views of the city and all its sights. Whether you're visiting Cape Byron, getting up close and personal with animals at the Australian Zoo or enjoying fun in the sun at Noosa, a river playground and bush national park, Brisbane is full of adventure, excitement and allure.
What people are saying about Brisbane
Informative and interesting river cruise. Difficult finding the start pontoon to initially board, due to BCC closing the rive rside walk at both end entrances. Suggest signs be placed on both closed ends. Cruise worthwhile finding.
Fantastic scones, informative commentary, wonderful scenery, uncrowded vessel all made for a great trip. Lunch venue interesting, food great once they got the order right, venue staff need some training.
I've waited 20 years to experience a ride on a segway. It was fun and fabulous. My guide Ember was excellent. Could not have asked for a better experience. Would recommend the tour to everyone.
