Hello Joy Friends,
Whether you would like to get to know your new home city or if you are just visiting to see how you like it here, or perhaps you have relatives visiting from overseas. Can we suggest a trip on the Brisbane Explorer? which is the official sightseeing tour of Brisbane and its super fun !
This week I had the pleasure of a day out with my girl and a wonderful girlfriend so I hopped online, booked our tickets, printed off a timetable and headed into the city. The tickets can be purchased as a 24hour or a 48 hour ticket and you can hop on, hop off as many times as you like. Just present your e-ticket to the driver and he/she will swap it for a ticket. There are a total of 15 stops at some of the cities most interesting destinations, both historical and cultural.
Because you are riding in an old London double decker bus you can feel the wind in your hair and see the city from a completely different perspective. The whole circuit, if you would just like to stay on for the ride, takes 1hour and 30minutes. Once on board you will be issued with headphones for the tour commentary(available in 8 different languages).
We started off our day with a wander around City Hall. Recently opened after a massive refurbishment it is truly beautiful.
Then we jumped on the bus and off we went. I was amazed by the history of some of the buildings we went past and also the architectural beauty. There are so many interesting places to disembark; the museum, the casino, the old windmill, South Bank, Chinatown.
So pop on your wandering shoes and have a pleasant day out exploring this beautiful city we call home.
Oh, and remember you can use this website to book Explorer buses in every capital city in Australia and the tickets are valid for a year from purchase.
