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, Treasury Casino 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 Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the first and largest of its kind in the world and home to more than 130 koalas. Learn about other species native to Australia, such and dingoes, kangaroos, echidnas and birds of prey through live feedings and shows.

After leaving the sanctuary, 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.

Tour leader Bob was outstanding. We enjoyed all parts of the tour, learning things about Australia and Brisbane in particular. Held a koala, fed kangaroos. Would recommend this tour.

I booked this tour so that my wife would have a 'cuddle a koala' experience. We were not told that we had to book! When we joined the queue we were too late. The tour was otherwise quite good but I got the impression that the driver was bored.

Our guide was great. The bus tour and riverboat tour were good with lots of good info and sights. The koala sanctuary was good but we were disappointed in not being able to hold a koala. You have to get there early to get a ticket to hold one only so many per dayand they had already given them all out. I would suggest doing that earlier in the day, or the guide get them in advance-at least for the people who have rebooked.

Our driver/guide was native to Brisbane, although he had lived abroad for many years, and his enthusiasm for Brisbane and the area really came across. The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary was great with far more than Koalas to see. The opportunity to get up close to wallabies was fantastic. The river cruise was fun with an unexpected cream tea.
