See all tours & things to do 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.

Fascinating history and brewing process.

Really worthwhile tour. Tasting session crisp and fresh and I’m not a beer drinker.

Brisbane: XXXX Beer Brewery Tour & Beer Tasting Reviewed by Deborah, 08/26/2018

Seriously an incredible day! Premium service, amazing sights, full on!

Moreton Island was magical! Beautiful weather, gorgeous beaches, amazing marine life, awesome 4WD trails AND Giant sand dunes for sand boarding. I LOVED the whole day, the 5:30am wake up was well worth it, I had a ball 4WD and despite how hard I tried not to scream during sand boarding I ate a healthy amount of sand. Also got to live out my mermaid dreams swimming through schools of fish and I fed fish bread, it was terrifying Massive thanks to the tour company sunsetsafaris and to all our tour guides 'Bones' (I think) and 'tash the mermaid' and her bro Chris for a flipping AWESOME time! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!

Very hot day. The crew did their best to accommodate me with 2 boys.

Please stock more lactose free milk Maybe have more smaller tables for families Change table please

Brisbane River Cruise and Koala Sanctuary Visit Reviewed by a GetYourGuide customer, 02/25/2018

Exceptional, polite, helpful staff, and fantastic, great value cruise

The staff were so helpful. They went over and above to make the day fantastic. The lunch was great and lots of it. The snorkelling experience, especially for first timers was amazing and safety was very high. We got to see Doogongs, all verities of coral fish and we were very lucky to actually swim with a sea turtle (surreal experience). Overall a fantastic experience that we will definitely recommend to friends about this cruise and will go again in the near future

Great tour - definitely recommend it to everyone!

Amazing tour with the best tour guide, Harrison. Everything went very smoothly and we got to see all the favourite spots on Straddie (Amity Beach, Point Lookout, Gorge walk, Cylinder beach, Myola springs and Brown lake). We were super lucky and saw heaps of wildlife, too (dolphins, manta ray, turtles, koalas and kangaroos). Lunch was excellent. But the Highlight of the tour was definitely Harrison, our tour guide. Very knowledgeable, funny and always our best interest at heart. Can highly recommend this tour!
