Day 2 City Sights
Get a taste of what Brisbane has to offer this morning. See the spectacular architecture that makes up Queensland's capital city and learn about the history of this fast growing cosmopolitan town. Brisbane is often called the "River City" and it's easy to see why as the river snakes its way through the city past historical landmarks and beautiful suburban homes highlighting some of the best features of Queensland's most liveable city. The river also offers easy public transport from the inner city precincts to the University of Queensland and surrounding suburbs. Tour by coach through the central business district past prominent buildings, all the while, feeling the heartbeat of Brisbane's past and present. Tour guests will take in many historical and significant architectural buildings, including City Hall, Parliament House, St Johns Cathedral and the Treasury Casino.
The Wheel of Brisbane stands 60 metres tall and has 42 air-conditioned fully enclosed capsules. Each ride is of 12 to 15 minutes duration (which roughly equates to three or four wheel spins) the ride offers unique panoramic 360 degree views of this magnificent River City. The tour concludes at South Bank Parklands with time to explore the many attractions including a manmade beach, the State art galleries, museum and cultural centre.
This afternoon is free to continue exploring the city.
Day 3: Australia Zoo
This tour goes directly to and from Australia Zoo, made famous by the Crocodile Hunter, the late Steve Irwin, and Terri Irwin and their global documentaries. Spend almost 6 hours seeing the many shows and demonstrations including crocodile feeding and snake handling.
