  • The Wheel of Brisbane is a 60-meter-high Ferris wheel, a landmark of Brisbane. Take the Wheel of Brisbane, you can enjoy a 360-degree view of the city over the Brisbane River and enjoy breathtaking time. The Ferris wheel rotates 5 times each time and lasts about 15-20 minutes. Although the speed is faster, the whole process is very gentle. On the last lap, when you reach the highest point, the Ferris wheel will hover for a while, and the audio guide will point out famous Brisbane landmarks so that visitors can better enjoy the scenery in front of them; if you come at night, you can visit the skyscraper It is even more charming to see the night under the lights of the city on the wheel. After riding the Ferris wheel, you may wish to stroll around in South Bank Park, where there are many restaurants, snacks and entertainment.
  • It's beautiful whenever I went there. Wish Could visit again.
