    I’m so glad that we were able to do this tour. Our expert driver took us to all major parts of the city. The tour is aimed at the sights and sounds of Brisbane with walks through the beautiful botanical garden, a river cruise, and an optional ride on the Wheel of Brisbane. The tour groups are small, which makes it pleasant and enjoyable.

    Tour time was changed, our guide was very accommodating and filled in the extra hour with some highlights of Brisbane. Very informative. Part of the tour we had a driver in training. He did really well and was receptive of the experienced guides suggestions. Overall tour was informative and enjoyable, more than what we had expected.

    An excellent tour. There was plenty of attention from the staff and lots of relevant information provided. This has to be one of the best tours of Brisbane. I would recommend it.

What You Can Expect

This Brisbane Full Day Sightseeing Tour combines our popular morning and afternoon tours (at a significant saving) and provides a comprehensive full day introduction to the River City. You’ll enjoy the services of a knowledgeable and enthusiastic local guide, and see the city’s landmarks in air-conditioned comfort on board your deluxe coach. A cruise on the Brisbane River is included, along with a delicious Devonshire morning tea. You’ll also take in the epic city views from Mount Coot-tha and tour the iconic XXXX Brewery at Milton. It’s the complete Brisbane sightseeing package!

Once CBD hotel pick-ups are completed, the morning portion of your Brisbane Full Day Sightseeing Tour will get underway. You’ll head off to see many of the key sights around Australia’s third largest urban centre. From the spectacular Story Bridge and Kangaroo Point cliffs, to the city’s magnificent 19th-century sandstone architecture and verdant parks and gardens, there are plenty of highlights to enjoy. They include:

  • See St Stephen’s Cathedral and Cathedral Square
  • Pass the City Botanic Gardens, located on the edge of the Brisbane River
  • Travel under the Story Bridge — a heritage listed steel cantilever bridge that spans the Brisbane River
  • View Parliament House — the meeting place of the Queensland Government
  • Catch a glimpse of the imposing Treasury Hotel and Casino
  • See Anzac Square in the heart of the CBD — home to the Shrine of Remembrance
  • See heritage-listed City Hall, which was built in the 1920s
  • Visit the Kangaroo Point cliffs for panoramic views of Brisbane
  • Travel through Fortitude Valley — the city’s entertainment precinct and a gritty mix of the old and the new
  • See fabulous Chinatown
  • Enjoy a scenic cruise on the Brisbane River, which includes a delicious Devonshire tea
  • See spectacular waterfront homes and the Brisbane skyline from the water
  • Cruise under the Story Bridge and past the South Bank Parklands — home to the soaring Wheel of Brisbane.

This part of the tour ends at South Bank at around 12.15pm. You’ll have some free time to explore the precinct and purchase lunch (additional cost applies).

In the afternoon you’ll re-board your coach and depart the city for Mount Coot-tha, which lies to the west of the CBD. There you’ll enjoy some of Australia’s most incredible city views. It’s even possible to see majestic Moreton Bay. Visitors to the River City have been enjoying these vistas for more than a century, and a trip up to the summit of the mountain is a must-do!

Next you’ll get up close and personal with a true Queensland icon as you visit the famous XXXX Brewery at Milton for a tour and tasting. Hear how this remarkable brand has evolved over its 135-year history — and learn about the role XXXX has played in Brisbane life over the decades. This tour will appeal to anyone with an interest in history — whether you’re a beer lover or not!

Your Brisbane Full Day Sightseeing Tour ends with hotel drop-off at approximately 5pm. If you plan to head out afterwards for dinner, ask your guide for a restaurant recommendation!
