  • 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.
  • Great for tourists and locals alike. As a local, I've only been on once and see no reason to go on again. Great view at the top and is a fantastic landmark for Brisbane.
  • Great view of Brisbane from the wheel. Had enough time on it to see everything. Carriage was clean. Paid 55 for a family (2 adults, 2 kids) a little expensive since it is over in about 15mins.
  • This attraction is one of Brisbanes finest, showcasing the city of Brisbane exquisitely. If your looking for a great night out then it would definatly be wise to include this attraction into your nights planned events!
