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
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.
Loved it! The segway was easy to learn and a great way to see the city. Our instructor was lovely and let us take pictures when we wanted too. Fab tour!
Enjoyed the trip. The driver was good.. the zoo was excellant but cud have done with few hrs longer to fit everything in. We cuddled a koala which was heart melting
Really worthwhile tour. Tasting session crisp and fresh and I’m not a beer drinker.
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!
