Brisbane Story Bridge

The Story Bridge is Brisbane’s most iconic structure and climbing the structure gives you the best views imaginable of the gorgeous city. From the peak of the bridge, you will get wonderful views of the city and its surroundings, which range from the Glass House Mountains in the north to Moreton Bay in the east, along with the best views of the city skyline itself.

River Cruise

Taking a river cruise along the Brisbane River is one of the best sightseeing opportunities when you are in this elegant city. During the 90-minute guided tour, you will saunter along the river while receiving informative commentary and fantastic photo opportunities.

Some of the sights that you go past on the cruise include the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, the city centre and the Story Bridge (which is also great for sightseeing on).
