An iconic landmark on the South Bank skyline, The Wheel of Brisbane is a breathtaking way to take in a 360-degree panoramic view of spectacular Brisbane city. Rising 60 metres above the ground in the safety and comfort of a fully enclosed, air-conditioned gondola that seats up to 8 people and is perfect for everyone. Visitors can experience the sights by day, the lights by night or book an on-board dining experience to spoil your loved ones. There are no reservations required so explore the Brisbane metropolis from one of the best vantage points in the city.
