Wheel of Brisbane

Home > Brisbane > Fun for Children | Fun Things To Do
Published October 27th 2010
What does Brisbane have in common with London, Dublin and Machester? Apart from being world class cities with impressive live music scenes, they're also all host to a giant ferris wheel, courtesy of World Tourist Attractions.

The Wheel of Brisbane, located at South Bank, may be one of the worlds smallest wheels, at a 'mere' sixty metres tall, but it's equally impressive. Guests ride in fully enclosed, climate controlled gondolas, complete with leather seats and television, to receive a 360 degree panoramic view of the city at the top. Each ride lasts for approximately 12 to 15 minutes, or two or three complete revolutions.

This giant ferris wheel is open seven days a week and operates later on Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children, $42 for a family pass and $95 for a private gondola (booking required). Purchase your ticket online to receive a 10% discount.

The Wheel of Brisbane is fully wheelchair accessible and is a great tourist destination; because if you're going to see the city, you may as well see it in a luxurious setting.

I was going to go on the wheel, but me and my fiance just ended up taking pictures next to it to compare how big the wheel is compared to us. I was too scared to go on it thinking imagine if it got stuck in the air or if it rolled off or something stupid like that. I have a big paranoia for heights.

There is one of these wheels here on the Gold Coast as well but I do not know if it is as big as this one, but they were going to take it down and now they are going to leave it because it is attracting a lot of people. It is located right in between Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise, along the Gold Coast Highway.
