My wife and 7 year old went on at night , the views are unbelievable, the cabins are nice and Roomy with air conditioning, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the cost is bad considering the time it takes and the spectacular views. We came 2 years ago and if you went in the day you could come back... More

The only way to know...is to go on the Wheel of Brisbane yourself!! Wow It is huge, 60m high with 42 fully air conditioned cabins the wheel turns slowly and smoothly ( nothing like an old Ferris Wheel ), an audio recording points out different places of interest and the views are amazing, you can see out so far. If... More

This wheel is nothing different with any other wheel around the world. It's fun. It's exciting. It's entertaining. But when you choose your time to ride Wheel of Brisbane, you have to choose sunset time. That's the best time. You can see the town from up there, and with sunset in the sky, there's a little bit magical element in... More

A must do experience when you visit Brisbane City, i took my 8yr old son on the wheel and we loved it , i don't get up to Brisbane very often I'm from the Gold Coast so this was great to see some amazing views and we enjoyed our day out exploring what the city has to offer.

I took my two sons on with me 10 & 8, and we were all fascinated by the view of Brisbane and how far we could see, we tried to pick out as many parks and churches as we could find. The trip is for one full revolution of the wheel which takes about 20mins. The mechanism is smooth and... More

Sitting in the Airconditioned gondolas, this was a nice way to see the sights. The wheel did go around a little too fast for my liking, but it went round quite a few times so you got your moneys worth. Also came with a free map so you could pinpoint places of interest from the wheel. Well worth it.

This is amazing thing to do at night. The city looks really cool. You get an amazing view from the wheel.The city looks cool and you can watch the ferries cruising up and down the river.

Situated in beautiful part of Brisbane. The wheel has small cabins the view of the city is ok. The cost does not reflect the experience. You probably have to do and make up your own mind.

Give you some knowledge of Brisbane, while seeing a great view. Tickets are a bit pricey, but a great fun way to get to know more about Brisbane
