See the beautiful sights of historic Brisbane on this half day guided tour of the growing city. Start your day off quietly with a visit to St. Stephen's Cathedral and the City Botanic Gardens, both of which are heritage-listed sites. Nature lovers in particular will enjoy the rare species at the botanic gardens, particularly their special collection of figs and bamboo. You'll then have a chance to observe the French Renaissance architecture of the Parliament House before paying your respects at Anzac Square, a park square that serves as a war memorial and home to the Shrine of Remembrance. Amp up the excitement and go test your courage as you go on The Wheel of Brisbane, a 60 meter ferris wheel, for a breathtaking birds-eye view of the bustling city and the Brisbane River. Marvel at the beauty of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, which were formed by convicts mining the volcanic rock from the area, then spend some time shopping and dining in Chinatown and Queens Street Mall. End the day with a river cruise on Brisbane River, where you'll take in Story Bridge and South Bank Parklands while enjoying hot tea and cakes. You will be accompanied by an English speaking guide who will tell you historical facts during the tour, and the convenient hotel transfers make this tour of Brisbane not to be missed!
