Wheel of Brisbane

Get a magnificent view over Brisbane and spot the city’s landmarks from this giant Ferris wheel in the middle of the South Bank Parklands.

The Wheel of Brisbane is a great way to get your bearings in this pleasant sub-tropical city. Bring the whole family and enjoy the comfort of an air-conditioned gondola as you get a 360-degree view from almost 60 metres (197 feet) above the ground.

Take in a vista that includes the beautiful Brisbane River and lush South Bank Parklands. Sit back and enjoy the free audio commentary informing you about the surrounding landmarks and local history. Keep your memories of the day by purchasing a photo book of your group’s Wheel of Brisbane experience, complete with a city backdrop.

Plan a special evening for adults with an on-board dining experience that features gourmet appetisers and spectacular views of the city by night. Look for the bright lights of the Treasury Building reflecting in the waters of the Brisbane River from the opposite bank. Purchase drinks from the bar or make it a romantic evening and organise for your own selection of music to be played in your private gondola.

Combine your ride on the Ferris wheel with a walk along the adjacent riverside promenade. Enjoy the cafés and restaurants nestled in the tropical gardens along the way and see why this is a favourite meeting spot for Brisbane residents.

Refresh with a swim in the sparkling man-made Streets Beach lagoon that is only a 5-minute walk from the wheel. This pool features a child-friendly water playground and daytime lifeguards.

Purchase tickets for the Wheel of Brisbane online or at the on-site ticket booth. Book ahead for a private gondola or during festival and holiday times.

The surrounding South Bank Cultural Precinct has a number of great hotels to choose from, or stay a short walk over the Victoria Bridge in Brisbane’s central business district on the other side of the river.

Make this your first stop in Brisbane to enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city’s loveliest sites.
