  • Ferris wheel right by the river just steps from Park, beautiful and characteristic, only minus the closing time, at 22 closes, a shame because at that time Brisbane is all lit up and from the top you can enjoy a beautiful panorama. Price 20 Australian dollars

  • Great activity for me and older teenage grandchildren. Reasonably priced and the team were great. You can even get a photo of the occasion. A must for anyone visiting Brisbane.  more »
  • Well if you go on top, you get birds eye view of the city. I would not say this absolute must, but it is fun.  more »
