  • Awesome views! Tip to save money: Check online coupon sites such as "Groupon" you can get half priced tickets.
  • Great spot at the Southbank and you can see the cbd and west end sides of Brisbane. Make sure you get a coupon deal, as the regular ticket is expensive (overpriced)
  • Interesting festivals hold every other week. Good for walk with family, friends or lovers. Lovely river view. Absolutely family friendly place
  • Views from the wheel are spectacular and the children love it. You feel safe and secure the entire time. Biggest let down is the pricing but you can get good deals from discount sites which is great for family's or groups.
  • The Wheel of Brisbane is a great place to visit. You can see some amazing views of Brisbane when you are at the top of the wheel. Would recommend visiting.
