Your Brisbane bike tour starts near the Wheel of Brisbane at South Bank Parklands. Meet your guide, who provides a safety briefing, and hop on your city bike with your provided helmet. Then take off, following your guide past Streets Beach, a swimming spot that overlooks the CBD (central business district) and Brisbane River. As you pedal, listen to some tips from your guide about dining and entertainment hotspots you may want to visit during your time in Brisbane.
Check out Kangaroo Point Cliffs, once quarried for stone in the 1800s, and listen to some of the history of Brisbane, dating back to the native Aboriginals. During your 2-wheeled exploration of central Brisbane, you’ll make stops to take photos and see key landmarks pointed out by your guide. See the Itinerary section for details on the three tours you can select from when booking—the 3.5-hour morning tour, 2-hour afternoon tour or 2-hour twilight tour.
Your tour concludes when you return to the starting point in South Bank Parklands. Total biking distance may vary depending on the riding skills and interests of your tour group; your guide may adjust your biking route to suit all participants.
