The day begins with a morning trip around Brisbane's CBD, where you'll encounter key landmarks such as City Hall, Anzac Square and the Queensland Parliament. Listen as your guide recounts stories of Brisbane's past, from its founding as a penal colony in the 19th century to its current status as a modern international culture hub.
The morning portion of the tour ends with a 45-minute sightseeing cruise along the Brisbane River. Admire the city's verdant shoreline from an open-air boat and sail beneath Story Bridge. Along the way you'll pass more iconic landmarks such as the Botanic Gardens, Old Customs House, and Kangaroo Point Cliffs.
After the cruise is over you'll moor up alongside the Southbank Parklands, where there will be free time to eat, sunbathe or just explore the area's lush tropical gardens. Consult your tour guide on the exact departure time, as the coach will eventually proceed to Lone Pine Sanctuary - a highlight for some considering it's home to 130 koalas! Have your picture taken with one of these cuddly critters and get up close to the attraction's other residents. Lone Pine hosts kangaroos, platypuses, wombats, dingos and many more native Australian animals.
Finishing up at Lone Pine the tour enters its final leg with a trip up Mount Cooth-tha, whose lookout offers magnificent views of downtown Brisbane and Moreton Bay. This full-day tour concludes where it started, on Roma Street.
