Best of Brisbane Full-Day Sightseeing Tour

    What to Expect
    From its roots as a penal colony, Brisbane has evolved into a modern, vibrant city and the much-visited capital of Queensland. Your full-day itinerary begins with pickup at your Brisbane or Gold Coast hotel and a sightseeing coach tour through Brisbane’s historic center. Hear tales from the city’s past and listen to commentary from your driver-guide as you cruise by urban attractions like City Hall, St. John’s Cathedral, and Parliament House.

    For an aquatic perspective, board a riverboat at the lovely Newstead Gardens and enjoy a cruise along the Brisbane River. Glide under Story Bridge and past waterfront attractions like Customs House and Kangaroo Point Cliffs.

    When you arrive at the city’s energetic South Bank, take a spin around the giant Wheel of Brisbane in an enclosed passenger pod (own expense). Take in panoramic aerial views of the city, river and surrounds from this observation wheel that reaches almost 200 feet (60 meters) above ground.

    In the afternoon, visit the XXXX Brewery for a tour of the facilities and tastings of its famous brews.

    Then stop at Mt. Coo-tha Lookout for inspiring views of the Great Dividing Range and Moreton Bay. Your full-day tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.

    A really great time. The host was very friendly and knowledgable. Plenty of opportunities for photos. The xxxx tour was very informative. The riverboat cruise with scones and coffee to die for. Strongly recommend.

    This was actually a very good excursion. They pick you up at your hotel and take you to a central station where you get on a different bus. We opted for this trip so we could see the different sights of Brisbane and decide if...More

    The Viator site provided a list of hotels at time of booking and we got ourselves to the closest one. Please check with the tour company themselves. It was a great day!
