When your cruise ship arrives and you only have a few hours to spend in beautiful Brisbane, why waste time waiting for crowded shuttle buses or lining up for a taxi? We will be waiting for you when you disembark, whether it’s from Hamilton (Portside) or one of the large vessel terminals (FI Grain) near the mouth of the Brisbane River (where there’s no public transport). Our beautiful and exciting motorcycle trike takes two passengers in addition to the rider and you will be treated to a wonderful open air experience showing the pick of Brisbane’s sights, including places where tour buses just don’t (or simply can’t!) go, accompanied by a local experienced rider who has only you to look after. Our tour includes a ride through the city streets of Brisbane noting our early buildings and remnants of our convict beginnings, a ride over our beautiful heritage-listed cantilevered Story Bridge (by the same designer as the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge) and the cliffs of Kangaroo Point overlooking the river and the city itself. We ride through the Roma Street Parklands and then out into our near-city suburbs full of our iconic Queenslander homes on stilts, hanging precariously onto impossibly steep streets. We weave our way through the hills and ridges of our older typical suburbs so you can get a feel and taste of what living in our sub-tropical climate is all about. We then wind our way up through the forest drive to Brisbane’s premier lookout, Mt Coot-tha (from the Aboriginal place name meaning ‘place of honey’) which boasts a commanding view of the city and almost all of her suburbs, all the way to the islands of Moreton Bay in the distance. Descending from Mt Coot-tha we travel towards the city again along the Brisbane River and cruise through Southbank (the former Expo 88 site) before returning you to your ship via either Kingsford Smith drive along the river to Hamilton, or through our Eastern suburbs to the larger vessel berths. We can also drop you off at a location of your choosing if you do not wish to immediately return to your ship and have made alternate arrangements to do so later.
Tours starting at Portside are 3 hours and tours starting at FI Grain are 4 hours due to additional travel time required.
