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
Had two wonderful walks in the rainforest to see all those special plants and rivers and waterfalls. Our guide was really nice to introduce to us fun facts about different plants and animals, and even stopped for us to listen to the birds. A really enjoyable day away from the hustle and bustle!
Fantastic value for money, I havnt been in the water for years . The staff were fantastic in making sure every one felt safe. Very informative knowledge about the island and the reef. Lunch was the best, the Chinese was the most mouth watering I’d had in years . Well done! Ten stars
Well organised, interesting & friendly tour around the brewery with tasting afterwards. I was impressed how the young members of our group were accommodated. Their questions were welcomed & answered respectfully. A good mornings activities.
Priscilla was a very friendly tourguide. It was a pleasure for us taking the trips with her. She did a great job! It was an amazing day with unforgettable impressions. Everything was perfect. Thank you!!!
Excellent commentary on the boat trip up to Lone Pine koala sanctuary. The sanctuary is well staffed with lots of keepers attending to all the animals. The hole trip was a pleasure.
