Brisbane Tours, Vacation Packages & Travel Experiences


  • The city of Brisbane is not aways included on all Australia vacations - but it should be.
  • Illuminated at night the Treasury Building was built in 1889
  • The city skyline reflected on the Brisbane River at sunset
  • Customs House
  • The capital of Queensland and Australia's third most populous city
  • George Street is a major thoroughfare in the city

The once sleepy town of Brisbane has emerged in recent decades as one of Australia's fastest-growing capital cities. With a year-round sub-tropical climate, it is also the gateway to Queensland’s Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, two Australian vacation spots with top-notch beaches and facilities. 

The Brisbane River flows through the city's hilly topography, making a river cruise a great way to see the city. Top this off with riverside dining on Brisbane’s South Bank, then roam the trendy bars and cafes of West End, or for serious clubbing, cab it to Fortitude Valley. Culture lovers will want to dive into the city's riverside museum district next to South Bank, while shoppers should head to the city centre's Queen Street Mall.

A Brisbane highlight is the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the world’s first koala sanctuary where you can cuddle a koala (legal only in Queensland and South Australia), feed the kangaroos and meet adorably grouchy Tasmanian Devils. Another essential Brisbane view is Mount Coot-tha with its spectacular lookout and excellent botanical gardens. Not too far away is Moreton Bay Marine Park, a haven for wildlife, where you can see dolphins at play.

Add one of Goway's Brisbane tours to your Australia vacation and enjoy the bright, sunny days and balmy nights of Australia's only sub-tropical city.
